dZi Foundation UK registration update

Great news! The dZi Foundation has been approved as a UK registered charity. The UK Virgin Giving page will be set up soon. We will keep you posted. UK donors who already know that they plan to donate can email Jim@dzifoundation.org to register and then get a notification when the site is up. (Do not donate via the dZi (US) site, as this will not provide Gift Aid (+25% tax benefits) for dZi.

Greetings from Phakding, where we are now starting day 2 of the trek to our new home: EBC

In Kathmandu, Off to Lukla/EBC trek Wedn

Arrived Sat night in Kathmandu. Yesterday was equipment check – all good, but needed to get a few more items locally. Met rest of the group – seems like a fab group of people; good because we’re going to spend two months together!

Today, getting organized – group briefing meeting in the evening. Then one more day in KTM, and Wedn morn off with the flight to Lukla, and start of the trek to base camp!

Also met face to face with Ben Ayers, country manager for Nepal of dZi Foundation. Great meeting in person after all our prep work over the past few weeks.

So far, everything seems awesome!

Keep u guys posted…
