Last night, I had a dream about my first professional job. I worked at Pizza Hut from 2008 to 2011, ages 16 to 18. It was a great experience, and I made a lot of great friends. The reason I has a dream about my job is because most of the friends I made there are from Nepal.

Nepal is on the continent of Asia, between India and the island of Japan. It's a small country with a large population. And it's a place I got to learn a lot about from my friends. I learned about the shopping and the clothes they wear. I can still say "Dhanyabad," which means "thank you" in Nepali. I've gotten to experience their culture first-hand through parties. They taught me so much that I've written an entire book series set in the mountains of Nepal.

Now, there's something I wish I could do for my friends. In just the last three weeks, Nepal has experienced two earthquakes registering 7.8 and 7.3 on the Richter Scale. Thousands of lives have been lost. My friends are still here in America, but they all have family in Nepal. I don't know if they're OK, but I want to help them in any way I can.

This is a list of resources and organizations you and I can donate to. If there are people we know in Nepal personally, we can use Google's Person Finder and Facebook's Safety Check to make sure they are safe. I wish we could communicate with the people there, but phone lines are down and much of the power is gone. Mail probably isn't going through, but good thoughts and prayers never hurt. That's what I'm going to do.
