Earthquake in Nepal

Our hearts are in Nepal with all of those impacted by the historic 7.9-magnitude earthquake. Recovery will not be swift or easy. If you are interested in contributing, one suggestion is GlobalGiving's Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund.

I learned this morning that a dear colleague who was making an attempt to summit Mt. Everest died in an avalanche caused by today's earthquake. Dan Fredinburg loved Nepal and its people, returning repeatedly to this special place and dedicating his summit attempts to honorable service work and organizations. He was a larger-than-life true adventurer and inspiration. May he rest in peace.
