Mane Power Fund Raising WELL Under Way

Because of all of you, this house of Mane’s will have power!

Last weekend I launched the fund raising project for Mane, my Sherpa in Nepal. I thought it would be a long schlog to raise $2,500.00 for the project. But it was crazy! Money began pouring in almost from the instant the fund raising began. 7 days later, we are at $2,045.00 with another $295.00 pledged! I know we will move the hearts of the people to finalize the rest of the needed cash. We have already had 34 contributors from all over the US and Australia!

I am in contact with people both home an abroad to ensure that the project, once the money is here, goes well and that the donations received are used in the way in which they were intended. I am personally working with groups here and in Nepal to be knowledgeable and helpful to make this happen.  But things are slower in these remote parts of the world for myriad reasons. Lots of difficult terrain and no transportation in the area beyond yaks and porters individually hauling things. To get from Lukla to Mane’s village is a three day walk. I am just starting the process of learning what will take place and will blog it all to keep you informed of the progress of your kind assistance.

  1. Fantastic news, Karen. I love that even before you left for home you were thinking about what you could do for the person that helped you. Looking forward to your updates!
