Coming together to help the victims of Nepal
In a world where many (and I mean many) people are generally negative when it comes to their jobs, I have always considered myself lucky to work for a company like G Adventures. It's not everyday that you get to work for a company that truly cares about its employees, customers (travellers in this case) and everyone else who the company manages to touch. I get to see/hear about this everyday at work and I've even had the chance to experience how G Adventures changes peoples lives while travelling to China, India and Bali with the company.
One of the most amazing things about G Adventures is undoubtedly Planeterra. As described by G Adventures:
In my time at G Adventures I've seen Planeterra do some amazing things. From launching projects/initiatives all across the globe to bringing together the G family in times of need during the Philippines disaster, Planeterra has always been there to help make the world a better place.
Which brings me to the recent disaster that happened in Nepal over the weekend. Almost as quickly as the earthquake hit, Planeterra had set up a page to accept donations to be used for the long-term repairing/rebuilding of homes in the region (including homes of porters, guides, homestay hosts and the homes of women who are part of Planeterra's Sisterhood of Survivors community project.
I know a lot of people want to donate to help the cause but aren't sure how. There are a ton of amazing charities/organizations out there that you can't go wrong with, but if you're on the fence then I highly recommend taking a look at Planeterra. They've already surpassed their goal of raising $75,000 and, with nearly $92,000 raised they're almost at their new goal of $100,000. If you're looking to help out then take a look. Planeterra has already seen a huge amount of support, but every little bit helps and it's never to late to help out.
