Donate for Nepal and save lives!

On April 25th, 2015, a devastating magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck Nepal. This earthquake, the worst in over 80 years, has caused over 2400 reported deaths and over 4000 injuries up until now. The earthquake made many thousands more homeless, and destroyed many historical buildings and artifacts. Miraculously, Pema Dorjee’s monastery, located in Kathmandu, was not badly damaged and people are safe, but there are still thousands in urgent need of aid in an already vulnerable country. There is a critical need for humanitarian aid, and you can do your part to save lives by making a donation through the Tara Bodong website. Every little bit helps, and through Pema Dorjee we will make sure that the money goes directly to those in need. Donate here: http://tarabodong.org/how-to-give/ and please like or share this post to spread the message. In Norway: Kontonr. 9008.06.29671
