Clean Up Nepal A Thon Day 3. Click here for pictures!
Living in Nepal is always interesting. One of the saddest things about living here is once you leave your nice enclosed gated yard, the streets are a mess with trash. Joined by a dozen others we are cleaning up Nepal one neighborhood at a time.
We decided to clean up together for 20 hours while raising money for the Yak Ranch Guesthouse in Nepal that will give 75% of its profits back to Nepal (25% gets reinvested in the Yak Ranch). We aim at raising $5,000 for the Yak Ranch to continue construction. You can learn more about the Yak Ranch here.
We are on Day 3 of or trash pick up! It ha sheen amazing to connect with our neighbors, we have gone to three different neighborhoods so far and had various comments, gestures, encouragement and discouragement!
But my favorite story was when my husband and I went on a Picking Up Trash date in the evening, without our kids. But a dozen neighborhood kids joined us! At first they wanted to know what they would get if they filled up a whole bag. I told them nothing, just do a good deed. Off they ran…but later they came back, they had found their own bag and filled it 3/4 full with trash themselves! When I went to thank the bus, one said, “We should be thanking you, you just cleaned up the whole street!”
Tonight when we went out to grab a bite to eat, our waiter asked us, “Were you picking up trash this morning?” When replied yes, he said, “I saw you on my street!” He had some other questions for us!
We’re enjoying this time together with our friends in the cool of the morning shinning light, caring for the earth and impacting our neighborhoods.
