The recent earthquake in Nepal may have happened far away, but it hit close to home for MatchCraft. Kuntal Joisher, one of our software engineers, was on Mount Everest preparing for his second summit attempt during the quake and subsequent avalanches.
Kuntal is safe, but his experience was terrifying. You’ve probably seen it already – this much-watched YouTube video below captures the moment of the avalanche at Everest’s base camp. Kuntal is in the white t-shirt.
On behalf of Kuntal and his fellow climbers, and to remember the thousands who perished and many more who have lost their homes and possessions, we are asking our partners and friends to help us raise money for Nepal. MatchCraft has made a $1,000 contribution to The Red Cross via CrowdRise to help with relief efforts. We look forward to working alongside all of you to help aide in Nepal’s relief.
