FEATURED STORY

Over $10,500 raised from over 365 backers
http://bit.ly/2aHcMgI

Thank You Collaborizm community for all of your incredible help, passion, and support!

One of the most successful projects on Collaborizm is “The Nepal’s Light”, a solar-powered charger & light invented by a young Nepali engineer named Madindra Aryal to aid the survivors of last year’s devastating Nepali earthquake.

The light allows Madindra’s neighbors to recharge their mobile phones (they don’t have landlines) and provides them with a source of light at night. There are 100 teammates in this project, helping Madindra improve his invention. To raise money to pay for the improvements and to build more of these devices, Madindra launched an IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign with a $10,000 goal.

Nepal’s Light has captured the attention of news outlets worldwide, with stories about it in The Kathmandu Post, The Memo (a U.K. periodical) and Fast Company (See the Fast Company article: http://bit.ly/2aWIsz9). All of this positive publicity helped the campaign but a YouTube video released last week by a French documentary filmmaker named Cyrus North — who has over 170,000 YouTube followers — dramatically raised the profile of the campaign.

Cyrus had been planning to film a documentary in Nepal, and serendipitously for Madindra, stumbled upon Nepal’s Light while searching online for stories about Nepal. Cyrus was so moved that he decided to feature Madindra in his documentary (See here: https://youtu.be/S19XRRR-dF0).

French Documentary Film Maker, Cyrus North, covers The Nepal’s Light.

We are pleased to report that Cyrus’s profile of Nepal’s Light in his documentary has helped spike donations to over $8,000 from nearly 400 backers.

Nepal earthquake survivors’ suffering has been alleviated by The Nepal’s Light. Please help Madindra achieve his $10k fundraising goal, and thereby allow him to improve and deliver more lights to his neighbors. There are 10 days left in the campaign; if you’re interested, you can donate here: http://bit.ly/2aHcMgI.

Madindra Aryal

Madindra has done an extraordinary job leading The Nepal’s Light. His persistence and belief in this project has been unyielding.

Fighting to get to almost $10,000 raised has been an amazing thing to watch. Not only is he a talented engineer, he is a great innovative mind who took the initiative to solve a problem in his home country and make an impact across the world! - Steve R. (Founder & CEO, Collaborizm)
