Help in the Nepal earthquake recovery efforts by purchasing a paper prayer flag when you dine at Boundary Bay Brewery in Bellingham, WA. The Boundary Bay staff is raising funds for the village of Saurpani, a Gurkha village located near the epicenter of the recent 7.8 earthquake in Nepal. Boundary’s General Manger, Janet Lightner, recently travelled through Nepal to base camp on Mt. Everest, where she met some extraordinary people along the way. Fortunately, the friends she made on her journey are safe, however, many of their homes and villages were destroyed.
Working with Jwalant Gurung from Crystal Mountain Treks, Boundary’s goal is to raise $10,000 to help rebuild the village of Saurpani. Boundary staff will be selling paper prayer flags starting at $1 — write a prayer, thought, or wish on your flag. At the end of the day, they will string them together and hang them up throughout the brewery. The hope is to adorn the brewery walls will several flags and well-wishes in the up and coming weeks. All proceeds raised during this fundraiser will go towards the rehabilitation efforts in Saurpani.
Stay tuned for an official fundraiser in Boundary Bay Beer Garden.
