Appreciation of Canadian Newa Guthi to the Community
Dear Community Members,
We would like to extend our sincere gratitude for joining hands with the Canadian Newa Guthi in raising fund to help the victims of the recent devastating earthquake in Nepal. With your unprecedented generosity we have been able to raise more than $22,000 in less than a month that too within the GTA only. Please see the list of donors who have consented to release their names.
As we made it clear in the outset we donated all the monies raised to the Canadian Red Cross’s fund dedicated to Nepal Region Earthquake Relief programs on May 22nd, 2015. This has effectively DOUBLED the fund going to the victim’s relief programs as we have met all the requirements to qualify for the dollar for dollar matching by the Canadian Government. Also, all of you who have provided your complete information will be receiving or must have already received tax receipts directly from the Canadian Red Cross.
We would also like to inform you that as a next phase of helping our mother land the CNG will be holding other fundraising programs in the near future to support the Nepal Re-building programs.

We would like to thank everyone who donated to support victims of disastrous and devastating earthquake in Nepal.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone in our community who came to partitipate our initiative and contribute generously for this great cause. Without you we couldn't have done this. Every bit of your action has a great impact to the victims in Nepal whether it is fundraising or participate in vigil program or spreading news or taking extra effort to raise fund in the college, schools and workplace. We would like to thank Canadian Red Cross for their initiative and partnering with us for this initiative. We would also like to thank Hon'ble MP Mr Kyle Seeback, Brampton Mayor Ms. Linda Jeffrey, Shoppers World Mgmt and Dr Dybesh Regmi for their support.
