Nola Ainsworth is proof that every little bit counts when it comes to fundraising.
Her Australian based organisation Reach Out Nepal funds schools and sponsors children in Kathmandu and the Himalayas in Nepal - one of the world’s poorest countries - so she knows first-hand how lives can be changed with just a small amount of money.
Reach Out Nepal began in Australia in 1996 after a trekking trip to Nepal where Nola read a guide book mentioning a local school that needed clothing donations. She called the school to ask what they needed and from that day forward, she has been dedicated to helping children in this area.
Nola started using My Name Label (Australia) to order her granddaughter’s kindergarten name labels 14 years ago and joined the fundraising program soon after. The money she raises each year contributes to extra experiences for the children in Nepal such as swimming lessons or camps. Reach Out Nepal is run solely by Nola with every cent going directly to the children or schools. By sharing her fundraising success, Nola hopes she will inspire other people to do the same because ‘it’s effortless, it’s a quick service and they have great choices’ she said.
