Kelsey Meyer an Alaskan nurse
Kelsey has been an active fundraiser and involved with various projects in and out of Nepal on behalf of the Active Hearts Foundation. A noteable fundraising event organised by Kelsey and her parents, Carol and Hal Meyer was ‘A Taste of Nepal’ in December 2015. It was hosted by Carol and Hal at their home in Fairbanks, Alaska on a beautiful snow covered evening with about 30 guests in attendance. The fundraiser was specifically held to acquire new equipment and assist the remote Sikuri Medical Centre project. Read about the project here:
‘A Taste of Nepal’ had delicious homemade traditional Nepali dishes to sample including dal bhat, chicken and veggie curries and chutneys. They had a silent auction, raffle and amazing performances on guitar and a silk rope by the the very talented sister & brother duo Teal and Luke. Kelsey shared the Active Hearts’ story and vision with the attendees and Dan even made an appearance from New Zealand via Skype.
The evening was a hit and an incredible $2012USD was raised!
Although a small drop in the ocean, the equipment given due to Kelsey and the wonderful people of Fairbanks, Alaska, will directly and indirectly benefit hundreds of mothers and infants! Thank you Kelsey, Carol and Hal!
