Episode Info: In March, Dan Maurer was supposed to be in Nepal organizing a medical clinic with Elevate Nepal. The pandemic grounded everything and over the matter of a few weeks it changed his plans for the entire year. We check in about how he and his team are doing and what has changed since we last spoke in early January. Mentioned in this episode: Do Good, Be Good Facebook PageDo Good, Be Good WebsiteElevate Nepal Inc[music] 00:06 Speaker 1: This is Do Good, Be Good, the show about helpful people and the challenges they face in trying to do good. Your host is Sharon Tewksbury-Bloom, a career do-gooder who also loves craft beer and a good hard tackle in rugby. Sharon speaks to every day people about why they do good and what it means to be good. 00:26 Sharon Tewksbury-Bloom: Greetings, I’m your host Sharon Tewksbury-Bloom. And after our last episode, I decided that I would go back and contact some of our past guests, and see if we could have them on for an update, check in how they’re doing, how they’re coping during this crisis, and what they’re working on, or not. I have already started those interviews and I’ll be bringing you updates from several different guests over the next several weeks. On today’s episode, we start our updates with one of our most familiar voices, Dan Maurer of Elevate Nepal. If you’ve listened to this show for a while then you will absolutely recognize Dan’s voice.

Even if you’ve never heard the rest of Dan’s story, I think you will find our conversation interesting. So I’m gonna go ahead and just jump in. I was gonna start with a little bit of disclaimer that we’re recording outside, and in my backyard, far away from each other. Testing… 01:38 Dan Maurer: More than six feet. 01:39 ST: Yes, testing the limits of the microphone cord for how far away from each other we can get. You’re gonna hear wind.

[chuckle] 02:01 DM: No, we’re doing okay. I send out occasional updates to whoever. Thankfully, everybody associated with Elevate Nepal on both sides of the globe are healthy and safe. 02:14 ST: That’s great. 02:15 DM: That’s the main update. So we’re very obviously grateful. And so we’re all good. We’re all good. 02:21 ST: And where are you all in space and time? 02:25 DM: Well, let’s see. I’m here in Flagstaff, Arizona, Anthony’s down in Phoenix. Nepal is also on lockdown. They actually went into lockdown before us. Our team, we had a few in Kathmandu that are in their house.
