Dear Visitors and Readers,
It gives me tremendous pleasure to inform you that on February 17th we reached AND exceeded the target amount for this fund drive!!! So far we have collectively raised $1020. This is wonderful!! We’d expected to take a full month to raise the amount but we managed that in just 10 days. A big round of applause and a HUGE Thank You to all those who contributed and helped and supported in different other ways. You guys are fantastic.
Anyway, since we had originally planned for the drive to continue till the 9th of March we have decided that we would let it go on till then, even though the target has been achieved. So any contributions from this point on is just a bonus. So if you haven’t had a chance to chip in yet, or if you have friends on your list who haven’t had a chance to chip in yet, it’s not too late. It will be possible to contribute till the 9th of March. So let’s see how much more we can collect by that date.
Here is the current list of contributors:
FLY EVEREST TRAVEL
Dhiraj and Janelle Basnet
Suman Goshai, Samden Lama, Binay Kshettri
Nirnay Chettri – MARG

I read about your family’s misfortune on Patricia Perkins Live Journal blog. Trish’s friends have enjoyed hearing about the hospitaly she received in Darjeeling, particularly through the Rotary Club. As a result, I’m glad to lend a helping hand in a difficult time. Best wishes from my family to yours and to their neighbors.
