Assist Abeen and his family

$15,105 of $17,000 goal

Raised by 550 people in 14 months

Our beloved friend, Abeen Thapa passed away on Saturday, April 22nd, in a swimming accident in Palisades Park in Soiux Falls, SD. He had driven up to the park from Marshall for a weekend trip, along with four of his friends. We have set up this donation page “abeenSings” to help his grieving parents and a younger brother make this tragic loss slightly less, although insignificantly, bearable. All the proceedings from this donation campaign will go directly to Abeen's kin in Nepal to assist them further in whatever decision they may take.

Abeen, 19, was an international student from Nepal pursuing his undergraduate degree in Southwest Minnesota State University, Marshall, MN. Every encounter you had with Abeen, you’d almost always remember him singing beautiful songs to you, in his graceful voice. I think it’s safe to say he’d woo you away with it. He was a charmer. Always the first to arrive to the gatherings, always the liveliest one in there. He was always full of desire and eagerness. “Positive”, “vibrant”, “good heart”, “helpful” are the words that come to the lips of the people when remembering Abeen. He was an adherent supporter of Real Madrid, and even more of Ronaldo. He lived as he preached, freely and passionately.

As the cliché goes, “He was a helpful, kind person.” Far from being a cliché, Abeen lived up to it, and the people he touched and left behind are testament to it. He was a driver for the people that needed ride, he was a mentor to the people that needed direction. He was a singer to the gathering that needed entertainment and mostly, he was everything you wanted in a friend. He lived his life freely and with joy. Let him live on in our memory as such.

Of many, an excerpt from the collection of songs he sang:

Again, thank you all for the continued and overwhelming support. Friends of Abeen and well-wishers that are concerned with the proceedings on this matter, Abeen's parents have been granted the visas and will be arriving in the US on Monday evening. The funeral service is intended to be on either Tuesday or Wednesday. Upon confirmation, I will update the correct date and time here for all that wish to attend.

We held a memorial service to celebrate Abeen's memory on Thursday, 04/27. The people that joined us to celebrate his life was great in number as well as compassion. Once again, thank you all for everything you've all done to help. To check out the full video of Abeen's Meorial service, please visit the Facebook page in the link below. I apologize I couldn't post the link for the video directly. Thank you.

Thank you all for your overwhelming support. We want to continue this strong trend with the only goal of collecting as much fund as possible for Abeen's family. The comments demanding that the "goal amount" be increased, is the best kind of comment we can receive to lift to hearts in attempting to help the family. Our love and deepest gratitude each and everyone that has supported and shared the campaign. We will upload more information regarding the efforts as it develops. Thank you all again.
