As most of you know, Nepal was hit by a devastating earthquake this morning. Parts of the country are devastated and the death toll is rising as I type these words. Our hearts and thoughts are with the people of Nepal right now. To try to help any way we can, we’ve made a list of certified charities that are currently accepting donations for Nepal.
Sadly in times of great need, some people create “fake charities” and take advantage of others. So please be careful which charity you donate to. All charities listed below are legit.
