Help For The People of Nepal

As many of you are aware, on Saturday April 25, 2015 a devastating earthquake hit Nepal greatly affecting their largest city & capital, Kathmandu. Nepal & Kathmandu especially are near & dear to Gypsy Rose’s heart for many reasons. We have established lasting relationships with some wonderful people there & we consider them part of the Gypsy Rose Family. For over 20 years we have worked as a team to create and maintain jobs for both Nepalese and Americans.

Our thoughts & prayers are with the many people affected by this horrible event in Nepal, India, Tibet and other locations. Gypsy Rose’s owner, John Bound, was actually in Kathmandu, Nepal when this event occurred. He extended his stay in Kathmandu last year to offer his assistance to the people and made it home safe & sound thankfully.

In the first days we were only partially aware of the dire circumstances facing the citizens of Kathmandu. Many were displaced & living in makeshift tent cities. The government was only able to set up a few official shelters. And many others were simply outside in unseasonably cold and wet conditions. They only had limited medical attention available to assist the injured. Water, food & electricity were scarce. The lack of these necessities led to a breaking point. But the people still need aid as supplies are scarce due to more recent events involving fuel shortages & access to transportation routes. So our work is not done.

Nepal’s government does not alone have the infrastructure & resources to sufficiently provide the aid & care that is needed for such a catastrophic event. The Nepalese people do not have the insurance & access to credit & financial assistance that first world nations have. That is why outside international aid is so gravely important.

Gypsy Rose is asking you to help. We are STILL collecting money to send directly to Nepal which will go 100% to the people. Because of our direct connection with our friends in Nepal we can assess what gaps are not being covered by the big organizations. This first-hand knowledge then allows us to help those who most need aid.

If you wish to help please include one of the donations from the list below, along with your order or just by itself. We thank you for taking the time to read this and for your support.
