THE STORY:

Peacelink Live wrote -

As you know the people of Nepal were recently devastated by a series of earthquakes. Over 8,500 people were killed, 20,000 injured, hundreds of thousands have been left homeless, many of whom are children. Whole villages were destroyed by shockwaves exceeding 7.8 magnitude, and just weeks later, as relief efforts began the country was hit by another 7.3 magnitude earthquake. Relief is underway, but many of the hardest hit areas are remote villages, which are almost completely inaccessible and outside the scope of major organizations. Right now, displaced villagers are living under tarps, and the monsoon season is coming. Nepal needs your support now.

On July 22, 2015 Peacelink Live! in partnership with Grateful Generation and Electric Soul LA is hosting a concert to raise money and awareness in support of Nepal. This concert will run concurrently and serve to support our fundraising efforts. We want as many people to come to the concert and to join our crowd-funding campaign to create sustainable, long-term funding for this cause. Tickets are available at https://tickets.brightstarevents.com/event/ReliefforNepalConcert.

Our initial goal is to raise $73,000+ to purchase building materials, supplies and other resources in preparation for the monsoon season. Through our LA-based community and our friend Reena Gauchan of Kathmandu Boutique in Santa Monica, CA, we have been introduced to Laprak, a village in Nepal, desperately in need of help. We are coordinating with local village leaders, to support their construction plans. Our community partner is currently constructing long-term, temporary housing for $300 a unit. Each unit houses a family of eight. We will travel to Nepal to deliver the funds in person, join in the volunteer efforts, and film the experience to raise further awareness.
