Proceeds are being donated to two charities: Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and International Campaign for Tibet (ICT). MSF helps people worldwide where the need is greatest, delivering emergency medical aid to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters or exclusion from health care. ICT contributions promote human rights and democratic freedoms for the people of Tibet.
Doctors Without Borders in Nepal (MSF, Medecins Sans Frontieres)
Both medical and non-medical MSF teams are assisting victims of the Nepal Earthquake, which shook the Kathmandu Valley before noon on April 25. Doctors Without Borders has set up inflatable hospitals, sent surgical teams and mental health workers to assist in existing medical units, and has flown in more than 80 tons of supplies to Nepal. Since April 29, MSF medical teams have been traveling by helicopter and on foot to treat people spread across some 15 isolated mountain villages.
International Campaign for Tibet in Tibet (ICT, www.SaveTibet.org)
ICT was established 1988 under the blessing of His Holiness The Dalai Lama. ICT works to promote human rights and democratic freedoms for the people of Tibet. Though it is believed that Tibetan casualties have been vastly underreported (listed at 25), it is known that 2,511 buildings were destroyed and 82 monasteries damaged. ICT has established an earthquake relief fund to help Tibetan earthquake victims.
The event is sponsored by Tebo Properties, among others. For more information please contact Judy Godec at BoulderAngelsForNepal@gmail.com or at 303.548.1998.
