There have now been more than 5000 confirmed deaths due to the massive earthquake that hit Nepal, and the numerous aftershocks causing even more damage. People are afraid of sleeping indoors, afraid of buildings crashing down. Families are separated. And there’s a huge shortage of food and water. So what can we, as Americans do to help? We are a world away…

The easiest and quickest thing we can do is donate to relief efforts so they can buy the necessary supplies. We can donate money to help fund the efforts of men and women who are working tirelessly to distribute food, shelter, water and medical supplies.

And this Time article makes deciding which one to donate to pretty simple. I chose the first one.

And if you’re so inclined, I used this link because Orbitz is matching all donations for relief up to $100,000.

Thanks for reading guys.
