Nepal is a place very close to my soul. I spent my youth there, and returned to live at the age of 16, during which time I truly learned how much it means to me. For many years my family has supported and become very close with a group of kids (now successful adults) from the area of Nubri, which was terribly affected by the Earthquake of 2015. I have made it my goal to raise funds, and contribute my own to buy clothing, tools, and household goods to transport to the remote area. In June 2016 I will be trekking to the area with a large number of porters to transport goods to the villages in and around the Gorkha district.
The Gorkha District encompasses many small villages and settlements, and is one of the poorest and most remote in the whole Kingdom. This area has received little support and attention from the Nepali government, whose corruption has become evident and infuriating since the tragedy. This is why I feel the need to do anything I can to be of support to the people who have been so kind to my family and I, and who, without effort show how happiness is essential to the wellbeing of humanity.
I have started a GOFUNDME donation drive to help in raising funds to purchase and transport goods to the area. Please share to your facebook or social media sites, and donate if you have the means. Thank you very much.
