When a magnitude 7.8 earthquake devastated his country, Lokesh Todi ’09 didn’t hesitate.
Within 24 hours of the April 25 quake that struck Nepal, Todi and his cousin, Boston management consultant Aditya Todi, set up a crowd fundraiser online at Indiegogo. They initially hoped to raise $20,000, but within days the tally doubled, then tripled. By May 5, the amount raised was almost $130,000. Their new goal: $150,000.
