Kate, a former Australia volunteer, sent this message to HEF along with her daughter’s donation for the Earthquake Relief Fund. It shows that small donations really do matter.
“My daughter, Sarah, ran a cupcake stall to raise money for earthquake victims. She raised AU$446 which converts to US$340. We hope this helps a little. Thanks, Kate. PS I volunteered in Nangi about 15 years ago and it was a wonderful experience. I would love to bring my children there someday.”
This amount of money is about the average annual income for a family in Nepal. Think about the impact…one cupcake stand feeds a family of four for a year. More about small donations next week, but consider how small donations of $20, $30 or $50 USD from several people add up to make a difference.
