A Chicago Entrepreneur Is Looking for Donations for the Nepal Earthquake Victims
There were many people and organizations that rushed to help the victims of the April 2015 earthquake that devastated the country of Nepal. There were hundreds of thousand people who were left homeless, thousands were killed, and many more were injured. Unfortunately, there are still many people who are suffering despite efforts that have been made to help the earthquake victims. Thankfully, there are still people who are interested in helping this cause. One such individual is Majeed Ekbal. This is something that is especially important to him since he has many friends who live in Nepal. He is concerned about their welfare and the welfare of others. It is his goal to raise at least $1 million to help them with medical and disaster relief. The money will be put in a crowdrise campaign. It will be used to provide housing, medicine, and food for the victims.
Majeed Ekbal is a successful real estate investor. He is well known in the Chicago area for his successful investments and also his new business Expresso Inc. The business that he recently opened delivers groceries to individuals who pay a small fee for the convenience of having their groceries delivered to their home or another designated location. Busy individuals can go on the website that he has set up, access thousands of different products, order items, and then have them delivered right to their home. No matter how many places a customer orders from, large grocery chains or even small shops, they will pay no more than $10 for the delivery service. This is making the lives of Chicago residents a lot easier. It is also saving them money on gas.
Majeed Ekbal has contributed his own personal funds to the Go Fund Me campaign that he has set up for the victims of the Nepal earthquake. He is asking other individuals to help these victims as well. He appreciates donations of any size. Majeed Ekbal hopes that the money that is raised will be able to relieve some of the suffering has left many individuals without homes and with severe injuries that need proper medical care in the country of Nepal.
