Friends, Family and Community Members,
With the current humanitarian crisis in Nepal, we know that many are eager to help and are actively searching for effective outlets to channel their support.
We’d like to invite you to participate in Nepal RISE – a global effort to increase awareness, generate support and raise funds for the communities and people affected by earthquake in Nepal. See poster below.
Nepal RISE is a global movement with events happening in Bangkok, Beijing, Hong Kong and hopefully more.
The goal of Nepal RISE – Bangkok is to raise USD 100,000 that will go directly to the International Medical Corps (IMC), who are currently working on the ground in Nepal.
Nepal RISE – Bangkok has three components:
1) May 4th: Nepal Information Night @ NIST International School – Please RSVP HERE
2) May 5th – 16th: Community-hosted events throughout Bangkok in support of Nepal Earthquake Relief
3) May 17th: Nepal RISE Benefit Concert @ NIST International School – Please RSVP HERE
1. NEPAL INFO NIGHT (Monday, May 4th):
This Monday, May 4th from 6:30 – 8:30pm, Nepal RISE will launch with a community info meeting at NIST International School.
This is an opportunity to learn more about the needs of Nepal in the short-, medium-, and long-term, as well how the international community can rally our support appropriately and sustainably.
This meeting will also feature live video call from IMC staff on the ground in Nepal, to receive accurate real-time information from the ground in Nepal.
2. BANGKOK COMMUNITY EVENTS (May 5th-16th):
From May 5th – May 16th, Bangkok community members will host a variety of awareness events to support the Nepal Earthquake Response. Please post event information to www.facebook.com/nepalrisebangkok.

On Sunday, May 17th, Nepal RISE will culminate in a fundraising event: a benefit concert with live music, delicious food provided by various Bangkok restaurants, raffles, and speakers.
Donations will be accepted at the entrance, 100% of which will go to IMC’s relief efforts in Nepal. A percentage of profits from food vendors will also be donated.
