Aloha and Mahalo... I want to thank each and everyone of you who've supported the people of Nepal over the last year by either donating, pre-purchasing a Special Rebuild Nepal Gratitude Edition Photo Book/DVD/CD, or becoming an underwriter for our Photo Book/DVD/CD... Wow!! Together on the mycause site we raised $14,405.00 for Toni Childs - Rebuild Nepal Project.
This year I am so excited to let you in on some important Rebuild Nepal Business:
1) For those of you who donated $55 or more, or became a Rebuild Nepal Underwriter I am over-joyed to let you know that this week the DVDs and CDs are being put into the printed Rebuild Nepal Photo Books. And, I will be contacting each one of you shortly to thank you personally, collect your shipping information, and ask that you pay $7 to ship the book to where ever you want. The books will be shipped from China.
2) Right after all the shipping payments have been received, we are going to be closing down this fundraising page, and putting up a new one shortly. We are in the process of creating a legal entity to collect donations which will make any donation a tax deduction in the future.
Last year, as soon as the earthquake hit we jumped in to help the people of Nepal without missing a beat. Our return trip to Nepal informed us that it will take years of support to help the people of Nepal get on their feet. Because of this we've made a commitment to support them every year with an annual benefit concert at the Crystal Castle until we feel differently.
3) We have the opportunity to raise over $100,000 this coming year from the 2000 books that have just been printed. Not to mention, the money that will be raised at this years Rebuild Nepal Benefit Concert on Saturday October 29th at the Crystal Castle and Shambhala Gardens... my tail is wagging big time!!
