Our #goodnitehug bus to Nepal
On 25 April 2015, a devastating earthquake destroyed more than 824,000 houses in Nepal. Due to the natural disaster, many children became orphans. Since we cannot give a hug to every child, we decided to give away pillows to children. This trip was organised by Lotus Bedding (Thailand) and S.N Joshi and Sons Company Pvt. Ltd (Nepal).
