Calgary, Canada – In response to the recent earthquake that struck Nepal on Sunday, Place2Give has launched the Nepal Relief Fund. The fund has been created to help direct donations to organizations that have experience working with groups in Nepal and are operating on the ground addressing the earthquake disaster.

While the Red Cross has a strong history of disaster relief, if your goal as a donor is to see a direct impact, and you value the emotional connection around how your funds will be spent, there are other choices.”

The Place2Give Foundation – Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund supports the following charities:

  • Shelterbox Canada
