Please Help - Nepal Earthquake Appeal

As you know, Nepal has been hit with an earthquake that has caused devastation across the nation with thousands of lives lost, thousands injured and many still unaccounted for. Homes have been reduced to rubble, the country is running out of water and food and support is needed.

The Australian Event Awards is supporting the Australian Himalayan Foundation Nepal Earthquake Appeal and we seek your urgent assistance by donating whatever you can.

As an encouragement to help - those who donate through the Australian Event Awards will go in the draw to win 2x tickets to the Industry Night of Nights on Tuesday 17 November plus $750 towards travel and accommodation in Sydney (if this isn't required, we'll donate it to the appeal). To encourage donations early at this time of need, this offer closes on Sunday 10 May 2015. All donations go directly to the Australian Himalayan Foundation.

If you prefer, you can make a tax deductible donation directly to the Australian Himalayan Foundation.

Who are the Australian Himalayan Foundation?

Following in the footsteps of Sir Edmund Hillary, the Australian Himalayan Foundation has been working for over ten years to help the people of the Himalaya through improvements in health, education and conservation in Nepal, India and Bhutan. Australian Himalayan Foundation is registered as an Australian NGO, and is a member of the Australian Council for International Development.

With a major health and education program in Nepal, the Australian Himalayan Foundation is working on the ground to provide the most practical and direct assistance possible to those affected by the earthquake and in particular for the children, communities and schools the Australian Himalayan Foundation supports in the Everest region. They are working in over 300 schools in that area and have already had reports of damage and casualties from some of these remote communities.

Please help to support the Australian Himalayan Foundation team on the ground provide the vital support needed at this devastating time.
