Manoj Shrestha, the only son of loving family from Nepal lived in Houston, Texas. He was a hard working student at San Jacinto College in Houston, who loved his family and friends above all. Two virtues, he treasured most in his life was loving and giving.

He had just celebrated his 24th birthday and left us all on 24th April, 2011 to rest in peace. The cause of his untimely death is not yet known. We have been told that it will take a week or more to get detail of his death.

  1. Can I get Anita’s email address. We have to create donation on cause on facebook, this will help us to get more donations. Sometimes paypal gives us problem. If we put on facebook, people can see and gets motivated to donate.

  2. Sachin bro i think its not a gud idea to open one more link for same cause. We already have two and we dont want more than that.
    Thank you for your corncern though.

  3. Shashin bro is absolutely correct…more the causes more will be the fund raised easily in short time…we don’t have to wait till May 15 and afterall I feel very pity to his parents that even after death they have to wait long for his body….

  4. god bless his soul.

    And gives his family strenth to overcome d surrow.

    Also wanted to know how i can help?

  5. i really appreciate all of your concern.. i want to make it clear.

    we will collect funds from NAH website (orzanitation based) till may 15. if we are able to collect the amount needed to send body before that may 15 from nah and anita’s paypal. we will offcourse send his body back but the donation campaign will open till may 15. and the what ever amount collected will be sent to his parents..

    i think we need to work together. we have a website here where we will have updates and we have a cause named “Help Manoj Family” in the facebook itself. i totally agree that having multiple cause and website may misguide or miscommunicated people.
