To our members and industry colleagues:
As reports from Nepal continue to stream in, we are increasingly aware of the desperate humanitarian needs of this devastated country. In response, the ORIA has been working with organizations that operate in Nepal to determine how we can best help meet those needs.
The ORIA Charitable Fund, established a decade ago as a conduit for aid to rug weaving countries, is asking for donations. All money collected (minus the banking/transaction fees not to exceed 3%) will be earmarked to go directly to helping those who need it the most, on the ground in Nepal.
We are planning to support efforts such as (but not limited to):
- Care & Fair Nepal
- Nepal Burn & Cleft Hospital
- STEP Label
- Unrestricted Donation (to be determined by the ORIA).
Note: If you have another relief organization that you would like to earmark your donation for, please let me know and we will accommodate your request.
If you would like to donate to the ORIA Charitable Fund ~ Nepal Earthquake Relief, here are some of the ways to do so:
- By check payable to the ORIA Charitable Fund, mailed to the ORIA office:
400 Tenafly Road, #699,
Tenafly NJ 07670
- By credit card.
Note that the credit card authorization form can be downloaded and printed from the Charitable Fund page of our website.
Or contact the ORIA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We appreciate your support. Thank you.
