The world is small. Sometimes even smaller than we think and then there is this notion of the global village. Kathmandu is around the corner.
The world is small. Sometimes smaller than we think. There is the concept of the global village. If we look up where some products have their origin, we find that Kathmandu is around the corner.
The beautiful, new and clean design of our blog actually comes from Nepal, created by Theme Grill and Sanjip Shah. Immediately after the devastating earthquake from a few days ago, his home page is difficult to reach.
The Theme Grill team fortunately survived the earthquake but the building where their office is located in what severely damaged. I guess it will take some time until activities will resume their usual course again. While our friends are doing comparatively, the situation elsewhere in the country is indescribable: Nepal and Kathmandu wants help for years to come.
The beautiful, new, clean design of our blog comes from Nepal. Conceived by Theme Grill and Sanjip Shah. Shortly after the devastating earthquake, his page was difficult to reach; the connection is now more stable and faster.
The Theme Grill team survived the earthquake unscathed; the building in which the office is located is damaged. It will take some time before the activities are back to normal. Our friends are still having a good time, the situation on site is indescribable. Nepal and Kathmandu will need help for years to come.
In a village, people help each other. When a catastrophe hits people stand up for each other, regardless of origin or religion (despite what some fanatics around the globe would have us believe). This blog writes about luxury topics such as cars. Keeps politics out ... usually. Today it calls for aid for Kathmandu, our friends in the global village. There, silence would be a mistake.
Sanjip Shah published a link to a local charity, which I believe to be transparent and trustworthy in its work to provide local help. Include any amount and any help. Donations are easy and secure through PayPal.
As I said, the world is a small village. Our neighbors need help. We have the money, we are many and we can make a real difference!
In a village you help each other. When disasters arise, you stand up for one another. No matter what origin or religion. And no matter what some fanatics around the world want us to believe. The blog writes on luxury topics like cars. Keeps out of politics ... usually. Today it's about help for Kathmandu, our friends in the global village. Silence would be a mistake.
Sanjip Shah has posted the link to a charity that is transparent and trustworthy and helps on the ground. Every amount and every help counts. Donations are easy and secure via PayPal.
