Fundraise Update June 2015
Although I started out with print sale fundraise solely to help out with the earthquake relief/rebuild efforts, the whole process in turn has helped me grow personally. Seeing so many generous contributors was heartwarming and reminded me of Charlie Chaplin's quote, "we all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery."
I am grateful to my sphere who appreciated and bought my photographs, I was able to raise total fund of $2,012. After my print, mat frame and website transaction fees, the net amount to donate totaled $1,650, NRs. 167,772.00. (Note: I did not take any profit). Funds collected after the fundraise ended on June 10th ($290) has been set aside for rehabilitation in Bhaktapur. Please view the table below for breakdown of funds. Although this fundraise has ended, I will continue contributing a portion of my photograph sale to assist in rebuilding Nepal. I will update more about the Bhaktapur fund and my ongoing contribution once details have been finalized.
Well, I am biased to Bhaktapur not only because it is my birthplace but also because it is a timeless treasure with rich cultural heritage and ancient architecture. Bhaktapur, UNESCO World Heritage site, translates to "City of devotees" and has a feel of an open museum. It is a must see place while visiting Nepal.

Thanks again everyone for helping me with the fundraise! Until next time....
Wishing you peace & harmony,
