Banner-1024px-EFN_v2

On April 28, 2015 a life shattering 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck near Nepal, claiming over 5,000 lives with more than 10,000 injured and the numbers continue to rise.

Recently  @EchelonEmpire alongside @EchelonDonates, @30STM_fanatic, @30STMARMY,  @30STMVOTE, @CiMarsLover, @GreenEchelon, @MarsWebCrew, @UK_ECHELON, @wtbfechelon & @yesthisisacult, (with a special thanks to @sugaronmars) have banded together as Echelon For Nepal, to help those affected during this tragic time. We’re offering a way to help and you could win prizes in the process!

After extensive research, conducted by Echelon Donates, our partnership has led us to two non-profit organizations whom we feel will make the biggest impact, UNICEF and GlobalGiving. Send us a confirmation of your donation and you will be entered into a chance to win one of the prizes listed below!

Sugar’s Nepal Experience

Below is a small excerpt from Sugar’s recent visit to Kathmandu, Nepal eight weeks prior to the earthquake. To read her full encounter click here.

 

After getting a little lost, we pulled up outside a building and as I looked through the metal gates, I saw a group of children all running up with their hands together shouting “Namaste” (Nepal’s way of greeting someone, much like ‘Hello’ in English). I was instantly overwhelmed at all these happy little faces greeting us, smiling and waving as we got out of the cab.
