A small group just had dinner at Shangri La restaurant in Bethesda. Lok Tiwari, the owner spent some time with us talking about the situation in Nepal. He wanted me to tell you that if you visit Shangri La or Ghar E Kabob in Silver Spring, he will donate 30% of the bill will be donated to relief in Nepal. He is leaving for Nepal by mid week with a team of 80 Nepalese Americans to work in Nepal. They are partnering with UNICEF (since they are already working in Nepal) to buy medications, water, and emergency relief kits to help distribute since they speak the language and know their way around. He assures me that 100% of the money donated will be used in Nepal. Many of you have asked me where you can donate. I recommend his group. Here is his message and the link:
