Wow! Just last week, together we raised over £11,000 to support families in the Sindhupalchowk District of Nepal as they work towards rebuilding their livelihoods.
We wanted to say a huge *THANK YOU* for joining with us for this fantastic day of fundraising. For anyone who missed some of the happenings of the day, here’s a brief recap:
Farmer Walter is ready to get to work on the IN Farm! Planting a chilli for every £50 raised, he has a long day ahead of him to get to that £5,000 finish line.
The INUK team (and a few brave friends who joined in!) took on the challenge of eating chillis throughout the day as we reached each consecutive £1,000 mark on our fundraising journey.
A HUGE thank you to our match-funders, especially A J Bennewith and Co !
While we had lots of fun in the office, and hope you enjoyed following along with the day’s activities on social media, the most amazing part about the day is the impact these funds will make to help families, like Rhada’s, that we are working with through the IN Nepal Livelihoods Programme in Sindhupalchowk.
We want to expand the Livelihoods Programme to help 25 more families in Nepal across 2020. Our Giving Tuesday fundraising has given us a great foundation to provide immediate assistance to families. Across 2020, we will need to raise an estimated £60,000 to help establish and equip more families with the start-up resource & training support that they need.
Giving a regular monthly donation to the Nepal Livelihoods Programme? Monthly giving helps us to be able to plan efficiently for the future to give families the best support.

Once again, thank you for all your support last week on Giving Tuesday. We are already looking forward to #inukgivingtuesday2020 and wondering what Walter the Duck will be up to. Stay tuned!
