ast week a massive avalanche occurred on Mount Everest that killed sixteen Nepalese sherpas, making April 18, 2014 the deadliest day in the mountain’s recorded history. This tragedy has revealed to the climbing community that the families of these sherpas are left with just $400 from the government and rarely any further support.
The Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation has teamed up with the Sherpa’s Fund, a group of ten professional photographers, to raise money for those affected. They are selling their photos of the Everest region and allocating 100% of the profits to this community.
You can help by purchasing photos here until the sale ends Wednesday (4/30) at midnight.
