My latest little garden is to help raise awareness of the DEC appeal for Nepal. The DEC represents top UK charities, and so far has raised over £50 million for the Nepalese people.
People from all around the world are showing their support for the Nepalese people by creating their own Mandala's, which have deep spiritual meaning in the areas worst hit by the earthquake. Here are some of my favourites...
Today, I'm helping raise awareness for the @disastersemergencycommittee #NepalEarthquake relief effort by creating a #Mandala. You can donate here: dec.org.uk (link also in Instagram profile☝️). Or consider making your own, including the hashtag #Shaken. I've created mine out of seashells, tropical plants and two fish that a Maldivian taught me how to make yesterday. It's hard to believe that Mother Nature is capable of creating such beauty - like what I'm seeing now as I peer out of my villa onto coral white sand and blue sky and sea stretching to the horizon - and such devastation. Rebuilding Nepal will take a mammoth effort. Please give if you can. Kx

Here is a reaction from a Nepalese man to the project:
Why don't you get involved? Get creative and show your support by creating a Mandala, posting it on social media with the Hashtag #Shaken explaining why you are doing it (and linking to the DEC). And don't forget to tweet/share with me so I can post it!
