Helping earthquake victims

The recent earthquake in Nepal has caused thousands of deaths and brought devastation to the lives of an estimated 8 million people. Fermilab employees may wish to donate to charities helping with the recovery efforts.

U.S. AID and the Better Business Bureau have published lists of charitable groups who are soliciting donations for relief efforts in Nepal.

If you decide to donate, be sure to check that the charity is legitimate. Scammers have historically used tragic events to entice people to open email attachments or respond to solicitations for donations.

Charity Watch is a helpful resource to find out if your potential charity is legitimate.
