Nepal RISE: Earthquake Relief Campaign

Donate to the Nepal RISE campaign online.


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. NIST International School and the JUMP! Foundation are partnering in the launch of Nepal RISE, a global effort to increase awareness, generate support, and raise funds for the communities and people affected by earthquake in Nepal.

Nepal RISE is a global movement, with events happening in Bangkok, Beijing, Hong Kong and hopefully other locations. The goal of the initiative is to raise USD $100,000 that will go directly to the International Medical Corps (IMC), which is currently working on the ground in Nepal.

Nepal RISE – Bangkok will have three components:

  1. 4 May: Nepal Information Evening at NIST International School – Please RSVP Here
  2. 5 – 16 May: Community-hosted events throughout Bangkok in support of the Nepal Earthquake Relief
  3. 17 May: Nepal RISE Benefit Concert at NIST International School – Please RSVP Here

 

Nepal Information Evening (Monday, 4 May)

This Monday, 4 May from 6:30 – 8:30 PM, Nepal RISE will launch with a community information meeting here 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 a live video call from IMC staff on the ground in Nepal, to receive accurate real-time information about their current needs.

Bangkok Community Events (5 – 16 May)

From 5-16 May Bangkok community members will host a variety of awareness events to support the Nepal Earthquake Response. Please post event information to the Nepal RISE Facebook page.

Nepal RISE Benefit Concert (Sunday, 17 May)

On Sunday, 17 May 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.

  • Musicians to perform at the benefit concert on Sunday, 17 May
