Caring donors have given more than $750,000 to build Nepal's first teaching hospital for reconstructive surgery. The project is the brainchild of an American who came up with the idea while pursuing a very different calling as a retailer of fine textiles.

2016 FUNDRAISER UPDATE
Our 7th Annual Fundraiser on Friday, May 6th was a roaring success! We have our wonderful patrons and donors to thank for that. We would not be where we are today without you. Thank you to each and every person who attended, donated, bid, or volunteered. Your generosity will benefit the people of Nepal who are so desperately in need of medical care.
2015 FUNDRAISER MAILER
The donations have been arriving from our 2015 mailer and we want to thank everyone for their kind support. Each and every dollar matters, and we are humbled by the compassion in your hearts. The holidays provide a time for us to take inventory of the many blessings in our lives and if at all possible, share our blessings with those less fortunate than ourselves. This donation letter from the Jones family is a beautiful example of how we can come together and share the gift of compassion!
Thank you Max and Rosemary (and family)!
