Nepal

Washington Post has an article posted today that shows the before and after photos of Nepal. The images are devastating. I’ve never experience an earthquake with that magnitude of 7.8 before, but I know how a big earthquake feel like. Living in Southern California for majority of my life, I had my shares of earthquakes and a 7.8 earthquake is really terrifying.

Nepal will need a lot of relief efforts since it is such a mountainous region. I donated money via PayPal Giving Fund to UNICEF and Doctors Without Borders. PayPal is donating 100% to nonprofits organizations for the Nepal earthquake relief. Good on them for waiving the fees. Nepal needs all the help it can get from around the world.
