Himani Trust, an organization established in Himani Shah’s name organized a fund raising dance party in Soltae Hotel in Kathmandu on November 26, 2011. In the party, members of former royal family including ex-king Gynendra Shah and ex-queen Komal Shah also participated in the party.
The dance party started at 6 PM and lasted till midnight. The Trust had set an entry fee of Rs. 5,000 for an individual and Rs. 7,000 for a couple. The dance party organized by ex-royals in the 5-star hotel

Extensive effort to save Kumar Kancha proved to be unsuccessful and he died at the age of 54 on January 17, 2011. The sad truth, he lost all of his monetary earnings during the treatment and had to beg for help in his last days, from his death bed.
A lot of people had done their very best to help in collecting fund to help in his treatment.
Special mention : Donation collection drive one of my friends in the UK, Lex Limbu, came to an abrupt end when Kancha died. He sent a total of £800 GBP (NRs. 91,600) collected till date via Jharana Bajracharya to the fmaily of Kumar Kancha. It is really encouraging to see young people like Lex dedicating their time in helping artists in Nepal. Thank you Lex!
Raised so far: £206,906.64
The amount raised by a kid, for Haiti, was at the time this post was written. The amount would be more when you read this post. You can see the latest amount here.
Charlie Simpson, a 7 year-old kid who wanted to do a Sponsored Bike Ride for Haiti because "… there was a big earthquake and loads of people have lost their lives. I want to make some money to buy food, water and tents for everyone in Haiti…" Charlie wanted to raise £500 but more than 400 fold amount will make it easy for UNICEF in its effort to help children in Haiti.
I am going to cycle around South Park as many times as possible…. (at least 10 laps, I hope!). Please can you sponsor me and all your money will go to UNICEF who are collecting for Haiti.
