Everest Awakening was founded following the April 2015 earthquake to bring together musicians, artists, writers, poets, activists, politicians, and scientists in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Nepal and neighboring territories of the Himalayan region. Using our skills and various platforms, we are doing what we can to spread awareness and hope, using our voices and resources to keep people informed and educated, and to help others to direct their efforts and donations to where they are needed most.  Everest Awakening is a fundraising initiative fiscally sponsored by Pathway to Paris, a registered 501 (c)(3) non profit organization
