Many people have asked how to offer support to the Sherpas killed or injured in the 18 May 2014 disaster. We strongly encourage you to consider The Juniper Fund.
The Juniper Fund (TheJuniperFund.org) is a US-based 501(c)3 charity exclusively dedicated to supporting the Sherpa community. It was established by Everest veterans, Dave Morton and Melissa Arnot (both of whom have been in EBC with us). Their goal is to provide an annual annuity to the families of the dead Sherpas and compensation for the injured. 100% of the funds will go to the Sherpas.
Any amount of support you can offer would be greatly appreciated and will make a difference in this sad situation.
