Khalti, a digital money transaction app, recently organized an online fundraiser concert “Music for Aid”. The fundraiser was organized in collaboration with The Arbitrary Group where many artists performed. Adrian Pradhan, Bipul Chettri, Kengal M Shrestha, Swoopna Suman were some of them. This event was held on March 30th through the artist’s respective Facebook accounts.
In a few hours, Khalti and The Arbitrary Group said they collected a fund of more than Rs 3 Lakh. The amount according to them will be donated for the CORONA VIRUS CONTROL AND TREATMENT FUND. The viewers exceeded 10 lakhs with 48,000 shares. The event was clearly a success.
In Italy, some people are singing on their balconies to comfort their worried neighbours. Artists in Nepal willing to help people using their skills are really praiseworthy.
This creative step from the organizer to organize concerts and collect funds online has clearly shown the potential of the digital world. It has helped people get refreshed in these frustrating situations. People are also happy to donate their amount to combat this virus. These kinds of innovative fundraising approaches can be really helpful and beneficial. Encouraging these types of events can be a helpful approach to collect funds for social events while ensuring the safety of the people.
