Majeed Ekbal is an entrepreneur who works in the Chicago area. He has recently started a company called Expresso Inc. This company provides a grocery delivery service to individuals who do not want to deal with the hassle of driving through traffic and purchasing their own groceries. Instead, they can use the website that has been set up by Majeed to look at thousands of different grocery items. They can choose the items, pay by cash or check, and then have them delivered to their home. Individuals who are at work can have the groceries delivered to their home and Majeed’s company will even put them in the trunk of their car so they are ready to be taken home. The whole idea is to help individuals who are busy to avoid going through traffic and the busy aisles of the grocery store.
Majeed Ekbal is very concerned about the individuals who are still suffering as a result of the earthquake that took place in Nepal in April 2015. Not only did a huge earthquake take place on April 25, but there were many aftershocks that shook the country all the way through May 2015. This earthquake left hundreds of thousands of people homeless. It killed more than 9,000 individuals and injured many more. Because the earthquake triggered an avalanche on Mount Everest, more than 19 people died. That was the deadliest day on Mount Everest to date.
It is Majeed’s hope to raise at least $1 million to help the victims of this terrible quake. First of all, he wants to provide disaster relief, which means cleaning up the cities and providing suitable housing for victims. Second, he wants to provide medical relief. Many individuals were injured and are now dealing with sicknesses related to their injuries. The money will help them to get medicine. It will also help them to get food and have access to clean water. Individuals who donate money can be sure that their donations are not only appreciated by Majeed, but they will be appreciated by the victims. Individuals can make donations that are small and large. Majeed Ekbal has even contributed some of his own personal funds to the cause. The money will be donated to a crowdrise campaign.
