The cobblestone streets of #Bhaktapur, circa 1993. One of my favorite cities in the world, Bhaktapur is an intricate mix of urban and rural, with ancient brick homes, bedecked with ornamented wooden windows, lining winding paths filled with smiles.
At least 50% of that is now gone forever, reduced to rubble by the earthquake. Homes are demolished, orphanages crumbled, hospitals broken, and 300 year old monuments shattered in minutes…along with countless lives lost and forever changed.

Please help #Nepal however you can. Make a donation today. Get in touch if you are going over to help. And remember this will not be finished when the news stops reporting. The rebuilding of lives and communities will take years, so keep giving, please.

Going to bed with a heavy heart after trying all day, and ultimately failing, to match the director of many orphanages in Kathmandu with tents on the ground to house his growing number of orphaned children. Tonight, again, many of them are sleeping out in the rain. Please, mobilize all your networks. If someone is going to #Nepal, get in touch. We can get gear in, match it with needs, and make a difference now.

Sadness fills my heart, mind, and soul as I think of all those lost in #Nepal. But, I’m also filled with hope, for there are no people I know of who are as resilient, tough, and tenacious as the Nepalis. Nepal, you will recover, and we – your many, many friends – will help. Please give to support the massive relief efforts, and send positive thoughts to Nepal.
