A great beginning to Namaste Nepal
We are a little upstart non-for-profit — with a big heart. A big thank you from all of us here at Ocean Wishes to all the donations overnight! Also a HUGE “Thank You” to our new Director of Outreach and Operations, Melissa Guarino, she is the driving force with this fundraiser.
The first 24 hours: We have raised over 800 dollars for the Namaste Nepal project.
Thank you, Melissa and everyone involved.
