By Patricia - Founder of Collectors Items
I have always been taught that true fulfillment is to give with no expectation of getting something in return, no instant recognition and no considerable commodity as repayment. The reward is the achievement that you have hopefully made a positive and significant change in someone’s life.
We, at Collectors Items, have found great purpose in helping others wherever we can, and as we believe that you need to be the change you want to see, we have decided to donate 3$ from every sold items for a period of 6 months to a chosen cause that has stood out to us.
- Nepal Youth Foundation -
The first cause we have chosen to support is the Nepal Youth Foundation. The founder of NYF, Olga Murray, made it her mission in life to send Nepalese children to school as the average literacy rate was only 5% at the time she first visited Nepal to go trekking. She saw the desperate poverty of these beautiful children, and decided to provide them with what is every child’s birthright: vital healthcare, education and a safe environment.
Nepal is one of the least developed countries in the world. Over 35% are living in abject poverty, 40% are un- or underemployed and 60% of child mortality is related to severe malnutrition. The most marginalized population, whereas females, disabled and low-castes are most affected.
Since its founding in 1990, NYF has provided life-changing support to over 50,000 children.
Every day, NYF’s programs provide life-saving interventions for malnourished children; scholarships that offer previously unimagined opportunities to bright, impoverished youth; support that empowers young women who spent their childhoods in servitude; safe, healthy homes for orphaned and abandoned children, and so much more.
Many of the children and youth in NYF programs come from very difficult backgrounds. They’ve suffered more in their short childhood than most of us do in a lifetime.
Let’s help NYF offer hope and opportunity to these young Nepalis. Their futures are so much brighter with our support!
