HOW IT ALL STARTED...
In the Spring of 2011, I was sitting in my sophomore dorm room at university, watching a speech from a girl my age, Maggie, who took a backpacking trip after high school when she met a poverty-stricken, 6-year-old girl in Nepal who was breaking rocks on the side of a riverbed as a child laborer.
Maggie was completely devastated by the fate of this little girl and used her babysitting money to enroll little Hima into school, a decision that would change her and Hima’s lives forever.
Maggie never returned from her backpacking trip — as she made it her mission, at 18-years-old, to build an orphanage in Surkhet, Nepal: the Kopila Valley Children’s home…
At 29-years old, Maggie is now the loving mom to 51 Nepali orphan children, runs the Kopila Valley School for 400 Nepali students along with a thriving women’s center. She was recently, and so-deservingly named CNN’s Hero of the Year.
Ever since that day in my sophomore dorm room, it’s always been a dream of mine to support Maggie and the Kopila Valley School with my entrepreneurial endeavors. Shay and I have shared this dream since starting the Bucketlist Bombshells, as we’re equally as passionate about using our business as a vehicle to give back and utilizing education as a tool to create positive change in our world.
We’re fierce advocates of Maggie’s mission — and her belief that “we all have the power to create the world we want to live in.”
