Mentions of Shoes for Sherpas or the Colorado Nepal Alliance in the Media
June 8, 2015Little Feet, Denver has an interesting post on their blog describing their efforts at recycling shoes and the organizations they partner with, including us! We're so grateful to Little Feet for collecting shoes for our Shoes for Sherpas program, and for carrying our Darkha Relief Fund t-shirts! Sadly, the April 2015 earthquakes and their aftershocks have caused us to temporarily suspend the collection of shoes for our "Shoes for Sherpas" program so that we can focus 100% of our resources on providing relief to rural Nepal. You can read more about the great work we've done on our Shoes for Sherpas page. Head over to their blog to read about some of the ways Little Feet is minimizing their impact on the environment while helping others: "Shoes also can be recycled here at Little Feet! We collect for two different organizations that will deliver your shoes to a person who has none, and keep them out of landfills." Source: Little Feet Denver - Blogmore

Within two hours on Wednesday, volunteers agreed on the start of a plan to help victims of last weekend's devastating earthquake in Nepal.
But these were not just any volunteers.
They represented local non-profits like the Colorado Nepal Alliance, Helping Hands Health Education and several others. There were also people who had lived or hiked in Nepal, or had family currently living in tents when their homes collapsed. The group's goal? Figure out the needs, collaborate on resources and help victims as efficiently and immediately as possible.
