Helping an Orphanage in Kathmandu, Nepal with Vive La Vie

Vive La Vie

Vive La Vie, the association created by Tito Tomasi and his wife after his first trip to Nepal in 2015. It was one year after the terrible earthquakes and the life conditions were tough. But how to help? What to do?

Vive La Vie

Tito first decided to talk about Nepal and show the country to the mountain bikers, showing that the adventure is still possible and more than ever Nepal definitely needs tourism back. So Tito and Oqamy shot a video, with the support from Mavic. Though the reports are going worldwide, it's a cool thing, but with the association Tito wanted to help the people directly. From the contacts he had during the trip Tito has met people from the orphanage 'Buddhas Helping Hands,' and decided to stay focused on it.

Vive La Vie

The donations are opened for the orphanage on www.vive-la-vie.org but what's really going to catch your attention is the auction. Because this time when you help the people you can also get very cool stuff for you too! Great mountain biking champions have joined the association and given one of their jerseys.

Vive La Vie

The name list is prestigious: Damien Otton, Loic Bruni, Jerome Clementz and Fabien Barel! So have a look to the eBay online store and place your bids to pick up your champion's jersey and do good! You can also get an Urge helmet hand painted by Tito, M size, varnished and ready to go!

Thank you for all your interest and support. Namaste.

 For my friends across the pond , Nepal is quite far away . If you fly past Syria, Iraq then Iran , few you still with me ! Over Afghanistan and into Pakistan , then there's just goog ole India and your there ! If you've got sidetracked and find Vietnam you've gone to far ! Lololol Good cause though !

 Everyone knows where Nepal is... Not like it doesn't have the highest mountains in the world or anything

 Nepal has been ravaged not only by earthquakes but also has had a long standing problem with leprosy. They are one amongst many nations that need help. This is what MTB should be about. People orientated not product. Hope to see more manufacturers follow suit.

 Really worthy cause in this. I hate making judgements of who's more righteous than the next, but I do genuinely hope this pulls in more money than the Santa Cruz bike raffle.

 Hard to believe we ride bikes that cost more than an average yearly salary in Nepal ($3500 USD).
