Location: Monumento Nazionale a Vittorio Emanuele II, Rome, Italy, Europe

Peter-West-Carey-Italy2015-082535-0293

Description: The view from the top of Altare della Patria (Alter of the Fatherland) in Rome is astounding. It was 7€ to get to the top and you only spend maybe 10-15 minutes there. It can be found at 41°53’40” N 12°28’59” E

You can see St. Peter’s Basilica on the left in the distance and the Forum is behind us, unfortunately. The whole complex, which houses a museum and Italy’s Tomb of the Unknown Solider, is free to wander and it is pretty impressive. More information can be found here.

For a while I am going to ask for your assistance in helping those in Nepal rebuild their lives. Average citizens don’t have insurance and I would not trust the inept and corrupt government to help where it is needed most.

I am going to focus on two non-profits I know have ties in the country (read: employees with families who understand where funds can help the most) for my pleas for assistance.

The first is Planeterra, a non-profit run by G Adventures. The second is the Paldorje Sherpa Foundation run by Sherpa Adventure Gear. Both of these charities are run by their parent company, who covers all their overhead so that 100% of donations go to those in need. Both of these companies do the right thing and care for the people of Nepal greatly. Both have funds set up specifically to help quake victims.

Please consider donating today.

I then took the video (about 8 minutes of it) and sped it up 800% then stabilized it.

The site is Point Vicente Lighthouse along the California Coast.

Thank You To Sherpa Adventure Gear For This Nepal Earthquake Aid Report http://thecareyadventures.com/blog/thank-you-to-sherpa-adventure-gear-for-this-nepal-earthquake-aid-report/ http://thecareyadventures.com/blog/thank-you-to-sherpa-adventure-gear-for-this-nepal-earthquake-aid-report/#comments Fri, 07 Aug 2015 21:41:29 +0000 http://thecareyadventures.com/blog/?p=15916 Continue Reading →]]> IMG_5657Disaster happens and we react.

Then we tend to forget about it if it is not in our backyard.

Such is the case with the Nepal earthquake and aftershocks in April and May of this year. I’ve been curious how releif efforts have been going.

And how, specifically, the money I sent to various aid agencies has been used.

I received a great report today from Sherpa Adventure Gear who runs the non-profit Paldorje Education Foundation. This Foundation has been hard at work ensuring the over $200,000 raised goes to those who need it most. The company full funds the non-profits operations, meaning 100% of the funds raised go to those in need in Nepal.

Take a look at their report and please consider making an additional donation.
