Dear Friends,

I would like to give you an update on the earthquake relief in which we have been able to organize or participate.

  • Our $15,000 of matching funds for Mercy Corps have been exceeded with contributions to date well in excess of $19,000. Therefore, we have decided to increase our matching funds to $25,000. If you would like to take advantage of these additional funds, please visit www.mercycorps.org/people/tufenkianartisancarpets/NepalEarthquake
  • Our factories have been involved in their own relief efforts within their circles of friends, relatives and employees. Some are participating in food and water delivery to remote villages. Another is rebuilding homes for some workers who have lost theirs. And all are providing emergency relief when they find a need. We have committed to sharing these costs directly.

Thank you for your continued, kind support. It is an honor for to partner with you in efforts to aid the people of Nepal.

Sincerely
-James Tufenkian
