Thank you to all who attended and supported our recent celebrity performance series starring Downton Abbey’s Jim Carter, to benefit the humanitarian work of WandAid International, Nepal earthquake relief project. We are very pleased to report that these events were a huge success and you helped us raise over $50,000 which will go directly to Nepal!
Linda Cruse is on the ground in Nepal bringing your donations from the New England events to give people a hand up to rebuild their lives after the devastating earthquakes of 2015 and recent after shocks. Linda will be joined by Jim Carter, bringing magic to the front lines and providing a glimmer of joy and hope to children and families in remote villages.
Here’s a few examples of where donations are going and how you can still help!
