SCAI would greatly appreciate any of the below listed items. Many can be bought in Nepal for a considerably cheaper rate than in Australia however, so if you are visiting, you may like to buy some items in Nepal on arrival. If you have some donated or good quality second hand goods you’d like to bring over, you can generally get an excess baggage allowance from your airline by sending them a letter with the details. We do not recommend posting anything to Nepal as the postal system can take a very long time, be costly at both ends and unreliable. Occasionally we are able to get visitors or volunteers to carry donated goods over for us, but we cannot guarantee when or how regularly, and most often they are bringing their own goods they have collected.
Books (new or good quality second hand), educational materials for children, teaching materials for teachers and laptop computers.
Savlon, headlice treatment, any other goods specialised to western countries that may be of use in a First Aid Kit.

‘Ice Bucket Challenge’ Has Raised Millions for ALS Association
August 17, 2014
Pete Frates can no longer speak. But in the last two and a half weeks, a video posted on Facebook by Mr. Frates, a 29-year-old former college baseball player, has inspired people like Bill Gates. LeBron James. Chris Christie and Taylor Swift to dump a bucket of ice on their heads and speak out for his cause.
The “Ice Bucket Challenge” has lit social media on fire, raising both money and awareness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. About 30,000 Americans now have the disease, which attacks nerve cells and ultimately leads to total paralysis, though the mind remains sharp. Life expectancy is typically two to five years from the time of diagnosis.
The stunt goes like this: People make a video of themselves dumping a bucket of ice water on their heads, post it on Facebook, Instagram or other social media sites, and then challenge friends to do the same within 24 hours or donate $100 to ALS. (Many do both.)
People have shared more than 1.2 million videos on Facebook between June 1 and Aug. 13 and mentioned the phenomenon more than 2.2 million times on Twitter since July 29, according to those sites. Donations to the ALS Association have spiked. As of Sunday, the association said it had received $13.3 million in donations since July 29, compared with $1.7 million during the same period last year. It said there were about 260,000 new donors. (With a spate of celebrities and business executives joining in over the past few days and pledging contributions, that number is expected to rise.)
The Ice Bucket Challenge had been making the rounds on the Internet for several weeks before it was tied to ALS. Matt Lauer, the host of NBC’s Today Show, had water poured over his head on July 15 after being challenged by the golfer Greg Norman.
Mr. Lauer said that he would donate money to the Hospice of Palm Beach County. He challenged Brian Williams, Martha Stewart and Howard Stern.
In late July, Mr. Frates learned about the challenge from his friend Pat Quinn. a New Yorker who also has ALS, and wanted to turn the trend into a fund-raiser for the disease.
Mr. Frates nominated himself for the challenge. Instead of having ice water poured on his head — “ice water and ALS are a bad mix,” he said on his Facebook page — he posted a video of himself bouncing his head to “Ice Ice Baby,” the 1989 hit song by the rapper Vanilla Ice. He challenged some friends, and the stunt spread quickly through Boston circles, then across the web until last week when a parade of boldfaced names joined in. (Last week, Mr. Frates again took the challenge. this time having ice dumped on his head at Boston Red Sox’s Fenway Park.)
“Did we ever imagine the level of awareness or the money that is coming in? In our dreams we did,” said Mr. Frates’s mother, Nancy Frates.
There has been a backlash. Some have criticized the campaign for so-called slacktivism, where people will click and post online for social causes with little actual impact on the cause. “There are a lot of things wrong with the Ice Bucket Challenge, but the most annoying is that it’s basically narcissism masked as altruism,” said Arielle Pardes, a writer for Vice. On Slate, Will Oremus urged people to take the “no ice bucket challenge” and just donate the money.
Ms. Frates said that her son, the former captain of the Boston College baseball team, had been “living the life” when he called a family meeting in 2012. He revealed his illness and said that he did not want to whine, but would instead use the diagnosis as an opportunity to positively affect other people’s lives.
The disease has progressed quickly in the past six months. Mr. Frates has lost the ability to move his arms and legs and now communicates through eye-gaze technology, his mother said. He was married last year to Julie Frates, whom he met eight months before he learned that he had ALS. They are expecting a baby in September.
In a video last December. Mr. Frates said: “The story right now goes: You’ve got ALS, have it for a little while, a long while, but either way, the end is always the same. ALS always wins. So in order to rewrite the end of it, we need to raise awareness, money.”

Ice Bucket Challenge for MND
Text ICED55 £5 to 70070 to donate £5 to the MND Association for the Ice Bucket Challenge.
Anthony Senerchia is from Pelham, New York and is suffering from ALS. He and his family were challenged to do the Ice Bucket Challenge by golfer Chris Kennedy. At that time, it wasn’t really being done for any particular charity, but it was quickly decided that funds would be raised for the ALS Association.
Former Boston College basketball player, Peter Frates, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2012, put it out on his own social media sites and the challenge quickly went viral.
To date, the ALSA.org have received donations in excess of $200 Million. This will aid research into ALS and MND all over the world.
So, we’ve brought it over to this side of the pond to raise funds for the MND Association in the UK.
What do you have to do? It’s easy – pour a bucket of ice water over your head. The bigger the bucket, the better – although you may need a friend to help you.
And of course we want to see a video, so make sure someone is filming it for you.
You should nominate 3 friends to do it once you’ve done your challenge. They either do it and make a small donation, or pay a fine to get out of it.
There’s no minimum donation – all donations will be gratefully accepted.

The MND Association is the only national charity in England, Wales and Northern Ireland dedicated to improve care and support for people affected by MND, fund and promote research, and campaign and raise awareness so the needs of people with MND are addressed by society.
