On April 25, 2015, Nepal was struck with a 7.8/9 magnitude earthquake and are still experiencing aftershocks. There has been mass devastation of villages/ homes/etc and the loss of over 1,000 lives from this tragedy. If you feel led to help, here are some ways that you can:
Promise Phan, beauty guru on You tube, is raising 50,000 on Gofundme.com for the earthquake victims. Specifically, a huge portion will be donated to re-build homes for the victims ( 300 New Homes). The main focus of the funds raised will go towards those in the villages such as Nuwakot where their is poorer population and the rest will be to provide clothing, food and other necessary items. If you would like to find out more information on her platform/to donate: you can check out the link here: http://www.gofundme.com/sxc44vk
Bubzbeauty, another top beauty guru on You tube, recently started a fundraiser where 100% of profits of her t-shirts will go towards Compassion International but with the news of the devastation of Nepal, she has made the decision to give 50 % of the profits of the t-shirts to Nepal. None of the profits will go towards her but exactly to where she said the profits would go to: Compassion International & Nepal ( 50/50).
