Homes for Earthquake Victims
$112,007 of $100k goal
A massive earthquake struck my country Nepal yesterday. It was powerful 7.9 magnittude earthquake that killed 3000+ people and also destroyed many homes, Roads
and Historical monuments etcs. Nepal has declared a state of emergency.
My heart breaks to think what everyone is going through at this moment losing their loved ones, their homes, their city
These are very difficult times for Nepal. Also Nepal is one of the least developed country in the world with a very high poverty rate, They need all the help they can get to overcome this terrible Disaster.
Our goal was to raise $50,000 but since we've already raised almost half amount in a day, lets aim higher. New GOAL : $100,000+
Most of the fund will be donated to re-build homes for the victims ( Possibly 300 New Homes)Main focus will be in the villages such as Nuwakot,Gorkha where there is poorer population and more poverty. And the rest will be to provide clothing, food and other necesary items
( I will also randomly choose one of the lucky Donor and transform into them in my next YOUTUBE video)
How I found out :
I woke up this morning and saw that my phone was filled with msgs asking me if my family were okay back home. I was so confused so I quickly opened my Fb to see what was going on. My homesfeed was filled with pictures of the earthquake devastation. Then I started panicking to see if my family was okay, thankfully my sister had messaged me and said that they were all safe. But she said it was the most traumatic experience ever. Everyone was screaming, crying and running to the streets for safety.
I also got to facetime with my dad and asked him if everyone was safe and about the extent of damage in the area. He said they were very lucky but his childhood village is all down to rubbles. Also my aunts village is in pretty bad shape too. I told him my viewers are very anxious to help in every way they can. Also since I don't really know any trustworthy places to donate, I would feel most comfortable if they along a team went and distribute the fund to the villagers. (My parents are missionaries so they spent most of their lives building churches, wells,homes, schools , toilets in the most rural parts of Nepal) . I can't imagine anyone else doing this besides them. He agreed and he is so proud that I am taking this big step to help my motherland.
So here I am with this page, Please Donate what you can and if you can't a prayer is also very much appreciated.
P.s Funds are being Transferred from Gofundme to Nepal via my Church Crossroads from CO that have also raised funds to help the people of Nepal.
I am just speechless to see how many people have come forward to help Nepal. Since we plan on helping as much people has possible , I have set our new goal to $100,000. Lets do this guys
I'm a bit concerned how two people can help hundreds of families with $100,000 and big registered organizations who have to have transperency where every penny goes cannot do the same. I see a few people asking the same question but no answers. How do we give money to one person and trust it will go the the victims ? Please explain exactly your plan - i think it will help the campaign more. It's a great thing what your doing but we are the ones donating money- so want to know how our money will be spent. Examples-flight costs -building costs,clean up costs etc? I just can't understand how $100,000 is going to help the amount of people you care planning on helping. Thanks for clarifying!
Namaste! I am from Nepal.I am doing same help hand to hand directly. I am little curiosity about that money where will be distribute and which area of Nepal? As my concern is help right place and right people. Here is Nepal many donate collected from around the world via government and social organization but hat is not effected, many victims are sleep out of tents no food and health concern, I wish that money goes for real help and real victims as soon as. If it is possible i like to know which area going to rebuild houses? like to know clarifying and transparency.
I sorry if this question has already been answered . I tried searching to see if it had been and found nothing. I would like to donate but I also would like to know where my money would going. As a de others have expressed the concerns I am also concerned. Do you have any proof where this money is going . I'm not saying that your keeping the funds personally however I haven't viewed any videos of you writing or signing any kind of checks over to any of these people. I'm just very skeptical. You say your going to post video as things transform. No disrespect but those videos could come from anyone. Please help ease my mind.
We did it !!!! We raised $100,000+ . You guys are so incredible and I hope you all know that this wouldn't have been possible without all her help and Donations. You guys are going to save lives ,feed the hungry, provide Shelter and most of all give them hope that one day they will have a normal life again .
May God give strength to all the affected people in Nepal. Blessings to you and your husband Promise, for doing this for the greater good. Everyone has a reason for being alive in this world, maybe this is yours Promise, by reaching out to your fans , you reach out to help those in need even if it is on the other side of the world. Many people do not trust the way money can be distributed. But I do trust you and your family , because you were born strong people to give and help those in need.
