THE STORY:

#MillionDollarChallenge for Nepal


Dear fellow citizens of Humanity, I started this # to show the power of "We The People"


I have many friends in Nepal, When USA originally declared $1M aid towards a tragedy of this epic proportions, I as an #American was embarrassed and sad. 
I dropped every thing, organized a Medical and Disaster Relief Team and left for Nepal, leaving behind the comfort of my home, my beautiful wife and three young kids in Idaho. 


So, I am declaring openly a public challenge to US Government and our President. 

Dear President Obama,

"We The People" will raise $1M donations simply by donating $1, $5 and $10 $20 or any amount and will raise $1M for Medical and Disaster Relief Efforts in Nepal Earthquake and if we are able to do so, we would like our US Government to match these funds to donate $100 Million for Nepal's recovery. I hope you will accept our challenge. Mr. President you can start by donating $1 towards this cause from you money and take side of the people.


I am on the ground among these people and there is no place better for me to spend my money, my time, my skills and my efforts anywhere else that a hungry, sick, homeless soul who has lost everything they ever owned including memories, comfort, food, clothing and above all a loved one.  


I need your help to spread this message across the world and see if we can move mountains together. YES we can!


Here is the link to my #MillionDollarChallenge to US Government!

It is always hard to wake up and get a news of a tragedy that strikes so close to loved ones and friends. This morning I woke up with a message from a dear friend in Kathmandu, Gokul Thapa about him being in tears as he saw the rubble of his collapsed home after a 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal near the capital of Kathmandu. Gokul said in a message on his FB page;

"I wish to die, I cannot see this mass distruction in nepal.
Never stop tears, seeing all remains and debris"

I would like to mobilize all of us to help with recovery and relief efforts.

I am planning to leave for Nepal on Tuesday April 28th. And instead of hiking to Basecamp, I will join Gokul and will try to help local agencies and first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter.

I will post picture from the ground and share stories of my friends and many local people who I am sure will appreciate the fact that many thousand miles away you are all thinking of them and praying for their recovery. Please wish me a safe and productive journey, even if I am able to help one life with my efforts, it will be worth everything.JRM Foundation for Humanity Nepal Earthquake Relief Effort

"The tragedy of life is often not in our failure, but rather in our complacency; not in our doing too much, but rather in our doing too little; not in our living above our ability, but rather in our living below our capacities."
