This fundraiser closed 4 months ago


I am running the Napa Valley Marathon this Sunday on March 3rd (yes, starting early this year :) -- and raising funds for Ama Foundation, a non-profit that provides a loving home and education to the most underprivileged children of Nepal. 

Today, almost 50 lovely children live healthy and secure lives in Ama Ghar, a beautiful eco-friendly home in Kathmandu, supervised by the most wonderful and giving people you will ever find. Every time I go to Kathmandu with family, our kids (ages 9 and 6) LOVE to visit Ama Ghar since the kids there are always having so much fun, full of life, creative, courageous, and just simply wonderful.

But there is more work to be done, and your contribution will help Ama Foundation scale its important work in Nepal. 

My goal is to raise $2,620 from this marathon -- $100 for each mile I run (marathon is 26.2 miles :) Suggested contribution is $25. You can donate online from this page. If you are in Nepal, please use Ama Foundation's bank information to directly deposit (see details below)

It'd also be really great if you can share this with your friends and family. 

Thanks so much
