Back Story: In 2015, I was learning to create a website in my I.C.T. course. During this time I heard that Nepal had a massive earthquake.

I had an idea that by creating a website I would be able to help the people.

Then I asked my friends if anyone had created a website and there was Nathaniel, he had already created one and he would update a local charity's website on a regular basis.

I asked him if he would help me. He agreed.
One lunch-time we met in the college's canteen and he showed me how to buy domain and website builder.
I still remember typing my bank card details for the website in the canteen.

This was only the beginning...

I had some experience on wordpress which Nate had suggested to play around with before paying for domain and hosting.

After that I researched vendors that would print on T-shirts in bulk.

Next, looked around for software to create high quality images and also a template for t-shirt printing.

I was in the zone for like a month or two for this project. The last thing before my eyes closed I would be working on the project. The first thing I would do was also work on the project. Sometimes, I would even wake up in the middle of my sleep with an idea to add onto the project!


This project involuntarily led me to create this website as well.
