GoFundMe Campaign

Karla Piecuch, the Associate Head of School at the Montessori Country School on BI is raising money to help the extended Tamang family in Shyabru bensi, Nepal. " I have known this family sincethe late 1990's when I first traveled in the Langtang district of Nepal.   My then-husband and I, and a very small circle of friends have aided them privatelyin the past....helping them to set up a small business, assisting in the purchase of their store/home, and we also provide funds to send their 3 children toboarding school in Kathmandu.   They lost everything in the earthquake....actually, most of the houses in their village were lost;  I'm determined to makesure they have assistance in rebuilding their home, as well as that of their extended family:  their elderly parents also lost their home, as did one of the brothers. I have set up a GoFundMe page to raise funds for this effort and would deeply appreciate any help in getting the info out to a the community at large.  Please feel free to visit it and to contact me with any questions you might have or further information you might need."  206-842-4966 (MCS) My GoFundMe site.
