My name is Smriti Giri and I am participating in the Rebuilding Nepal - 5th Miss Nepal USA pageant event. Please show your support by helping me raise funds for the affected Victims of the Nepal Earthquake by donating $10 dollars or more. Your generousity will be greatly appreciated.
On April 25 2015 a massive 7.9 rector earthquack hit my beautiful home country Nepal shattering it to pieces. It killed more then 9,000 people and injured more than 23,000 people. It rendered thousands of people homeless with entire villages flattened. Following hundreds of small aftershocks a major aftershock struck again on May 12, 2015 which killed 200 people and injured 2,500 more. Even after 3 months of the earthquake people are still shaken by the small aftershocks. Being one of the poorest countries the Nepali government is not able to provide for all of those that were affected by the tradegy-- many of whom have lost everything. Thousands of people still don't have a roof over their heads.
The main source of income of Nepal is Agriculture and Tourism. The earthquack not only has flattened the houses but it has also flattened farming in affected villages and the number of tourist has been dropped drastically.
We need as much support and love as possible.
