Nepal is a nation that found itself at the core of a massive earthquake. The damage done to the country was massive and destroyed many lives. Homes, schools, and medical facilities were devastated due to the earthquake. Donations and international aid are desperately needed in order to help those who are suffering in the squalor of the post-earthquake landscape. A series of private donations have been set up by those hoping to do their part to send money to the afflicted region.
Majeed Ekbal has set up his own GoFundMe campaign to help those in Nepal who could use more than a little bit of assistance. Ekbal is primarily known for his work as a real estate developer and entrepreneur. Clearly, he is also involved with charitable pursuits as revealed with the GoFundMe campaign.
Majeed Ekbal recently gained quite a bit of notoriety in the Chicago area thanks in large part to a shop-at-home venture that people really embraced thanks to the high convenience factor. Ekbal was in charge an an endeavor dubbed “Expresso Inc.” and it allowed busy people in need of coffee and other beverages and snacks a way to get the items easily delivered. The idea may be a relatively simple one, but not too many entrepreneurs came up with a working plan for a similar service.
Since he is such an innovative entrepreneur, Ekbal may very well be able to draw the attention of people in Chicago and the surrounding area to take part in the GoFundMe campaign. Without the support of a well known person, campaigns like these may struggle. Majeed Ekbal’s notoriety should help the venture.
The funds raised with the GoFundMe campaign will then be directed to a much larger Crowdrise campaign that is seeking to raise millions of dollars in relief funding. The funding should go help the cause immensely and aid those in serious need of financial support.
