Helping Nepal


Most of you know that I have a long association (four generations of my family) with The Salvation Army. The other day on the podcast I mentioned that I was not aware of anything that the Army was doing in Nepal, but now I can tell you that there is an effort by The Salvation Army’s East India Territory to assist in Nepal.

I always caution people in cases such as this to give – if you feel the need to give – to accredited and competent organizations. while I listed several the other day, I did not have this information at hand, but now I can say with confidence that The Salvation Army is also serving in Nepal and would be a worthwhile organization to support for its efforts there, should you choose to do so.

Disaster-Logo-JPEGThe Salvation Army has set up a designated fund where 100 percent of gifts go to relief efforts in Nepal. To give, visit salar.my/Nepal or call 1-800-SAL-ARMY (1-800-725-2769). Check donations to Salvation Army World Service Office (designate “Nepal Earthquake”) can be sent to:
