Nepal Earthquake Disaster Relief

In 2007 I had the pleasure of traveling to Nepal with a dear friend and fellow adventurer, Kyle Steigerwald. We spent three weeks trekking the Himalayas and exploring Kathmandu. I was awestruck by the beauty of the region and the charm of its people. Of all the places I've traveled on this planet, Nepal is the country that cries out the most for a return visit.

On April 25th, Nepal was rocked by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake, devastating much of Kathmandu and killing over 6,200 people. It crushes me to see the struggle that Nepal is going through in the aftermath of such a powerful earthquake, especially having experienced their culture first hand. The people of Nepal are incredibly generous and kind. They need help now more than ever, so I'm urging my readers to please support them however you can.  

I have chosen to donate to the charities listed in the article below and I hope you'll consider donating as well. Even a small contribution of $5-$10 will help. Many people pledging small donations will add up and make a huge difference. Thanks for the consideration. I wouldn't ask if it wasn't truly important.
