Thanks to all generous donors and 'sharers' , HelpSamir fund not only reached the target amount, but exceeded it.
I have been in touch with Samir's immediate family, and people from Nepal who have been accepting contributions for the fund from Nepal. Samir's family is extremely happy to know that people from all over the world came together to help a family in need-- a family, who was a victim of the dirty politics in Nepal.
When I started this fundraiser, my initial idea was to talk to my friends, ask them to contribute their lunch money, and send it to Nepal. But fortunately, the list of contributors grew out of my network of friends, and now 106 of you have contributed to the fund. As the contributors of the fund, you have the right to know how much is raised and delivered to the family.
Contributions came through three different ways: Paypal through Fundrazr, transfer to bank account, and through bitcoins. Here's the final list of contributors sorted by the amount of contribution and alphabetical order by first name.
The money has been transferred to Nepal, and the meeting with Samir and his family has been scheduled for Saturday Morning. Please check back for updates.
Thank you very much again. If you have questions, comments or suggestions, feel free to contact me.
