Simply Give: How to Help Victims of Nepal’s Earthquakes

Simply Give: How to Help Victims of Nepal’s Earthquakes
Like the rest of the world, Turner PR’s heart goes out to the people of Nepal. On April 25, a major earthquake struck the country, resulting in untold damage and killing thousands. To make matters worse, a second earthquake occurred on May 12. We’d like to help in any way we can – and in addition to our dollars, we’re spreading the word about how to get the Nepalese people the aid they desperately need. Here are just a handful of worthy organizations and initiatives.

Nepal Photo Relief Project

Denver photographer and Public Works co-founder Mike Arzt recently launched the Nepal Photo Relief Project to support disaster relief in Nepal. Browse and purchase amazing images (prices range from $3 to $250 to fit all budgets) from his online gallery by visiting www.thepublicworks.photoshelter.com. All proceeds benefit Nepal relief through the DZI Foundation. All donations are being matched until they hit $100,000.  Learn more
