#SewaInternational appeals for support to #NepalRelief


Over 8 million affected by Nepals worst earthquake and 2.7 million of them are children in need of vital aid, Sewa International appeals for support to our brethren in one of the most poorest countries of the world.

At least 940,000 children living in areas severely affected by yesterday’s earthquake in Nepal are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance.

The death toll from the earthquake could reach 10,000, Nepal’s prime minister said Tuesday.

More than 1.4 million people affected by Saturday’s devastating earthquake in Nepal are in need of food assistance

Nepal needs our shoulder, our compassionate action not just compassion, please join hands as global  citizens to make Nepal stand with pride. Be a part of rehabilitation and relief for the Nepalese….

Rehabilitation agencies have estimated that rebuilding the Earthquake hit areas of Nepal will take $5 billion at a minimum. Sewa International has set a target of raising a minimum of $1 million for this cause. Thus far, we have collected $100,000 through online and checks. We have pledges of an additional $250,000.

Gone Girl – Novel by Gillian Flynn

via Amazon.com via Amazon.com

There are some books that seem to blow up all at once.  It’s as if suddenly EVERYONE is reading it, EVERYONE is talking about it, and EVERYONE is waiting movie adaptation.  These books are thrilling and successful, but are hardly ever very good (think The Da Vinci Code, 50 Shades of Grey), and typically have a great plot with surface level characters.  Frankly, these trendy books just don’t have much depth.

Gone Girl, in many ways, falls into the category of the book-of-the-moment.  Flynn’s third novel was wildly successful, with readers spanning from teenagers to parents to everyone in-between.  It was one of those novels everyone stayed up until 4am reading, just trying to get through one more chapter, and couldn’t wait to gush about to their peers.  But Flynn’s characters were complex.  As a reader, I developed emotions towards…

5 Reasons You Should Never Settle

As I sit here to write this article, I’m in our hotel room overlooking the beach. The waves sound so close you feel like you can put your hand out the window and touch them. My girlfriend is making coffee. Her tanned skin is accentuated even further by the stark white walls. The rays of sun are coming through the blinds signaling a new day has begun. Michael Bublé is permeating the room from my laptop speakers.

Next to me on the table is this month’s copy of Esquire, the cover of which is beckoning us with “84 Things A Man Should Do Before He Dies.” And I sit here thinking to myself – no matter how many failures I face or how hard life becomes, I refuse to settle.

You can settle for less than you deserve in many areas of life. A job you can’t stand going to…
