A Go Fund Me Campaign to Help Nepal Earthquake Victims
Majeed Ekbal recently set up a Go Fund Me account where individuals can donate funds to the April 2015 Nepal earthquake victims. It is his goal to raise at least $1 million to provide medical and disaster relief. People around the world were shocked when they saw the devastation on the news that took place in Nepal not only on that day, but in the many weeks that followed when there were many aftershocks. The devastation was immense. Large buildings, homes, and businesses were flattened. Many individuals died or were injured under the rubble. In fact, it is estimated that over 9,000 people died. The earthquake was so strong that it caused an avalanche on Mount Everest. April 25, 2015 was the deadliest day in Mount Everest’s history. At least 19 people died because of it. This is something that was especially disheartening in the climbing community.
Majeed Ekbal appreciates all donations that are given to the fund, even if they are small. He knows that the money is going to help people who are still dealing with injuries related to the earthquake and do not have homes to live in. In fact, there were hundreds of thousands of people who lost their homes in the earthquake. This is something that is of special concern to Majeed because he knows people who live in the country.
Majeed Ekbal is a businessman who lives in Chicago. He is well known throughout the city because of his real estate investments. He is also known because of the business he recently opened called Expresso Inc. This business provides a delivery service to individuals who do not want to spend time in the grocery store. They can access the website that has been set up by Majeed’s company and look at thousands of different grocery items that are available in the area. They can order from several stores and then have these items delivered right to their home or another convenient location.
The money that is collected in the campaign is going to bring relief to individuals who are suffering in Nepal. Majeed Ekbal has a donated some of his own personal funds to the cause already. He also has an account on Mtv.com.
