Small Contributions Can Go a Long Way in Helping Others

If many people contribute small donations to a certain cause, over time, there will be a lot of money that can be used toward that cause. This is the idea behind the Go Fund Me campaign that has been set up by Majeed Ekbal. He hopes to raise $10,000 that will be used to help the victims of the Nepal earthquake that took place in April 2015. Even if people can only donate a little, their combined donation can do a lot of good. The money that is raised through that Go Fund Me campaign will be contributed to a crowdrise fund. That crowdrise fund has the goal of contributing $1 million to the victims. Majeed Ekbal has already personally donated to this fund. This cause is especially important to him because he knows people who live in the country and has heard their experiences firsthand. He also has a Soundcloud account which is updated regularly.

A 7.8 earthquake took place on April 25, 2015 in the country of Nepal. Many strong aftershocks followed. This caused severe devastation in the country. There were thousands who were killed and even more who were injured. It has been estimated that hundreds of thousands of people lost their homes and businesses. Even well-known buildings were completely destroyed. The earthquake was so strong that it triggered an avalanche on Mount Everest, killing 19 people. That proved to be the deadliest day in Mount Everest’s history. Even though many individuals have contributed to funds that have been set up to help the victims, more help is needed.
