Check it out :) Our very own Beryl no less! And typing on my MacBook Air. Feels oddly satisfying to see my laptop that I love using so much everyday on a giant billboard.
Welcome Sunny and Oshima, our two new Harilo spokespeople! Look out for them in future Harilo billboards, print ads, and video spots :)
Lelina Cing! Congratulations Lelina, you win $10 Harilo shopping credit!

We're happy to announce the launch of "Harilo for Nepal", a new public-private partnership initiative aimed at improving quality of life in Nepal - one item at a time.
Harilo.com began from the idea that living in Nepal should not mean that we get less than the rest of the world – less selection, less quality, less service. We believe this idea extends beyond our customers; it applies to all of Nepal. Residents of Nepal deserve a better quality of life. Be it in areas of health, education or infrastructure, we deserve better solutions.
Through "Harilo for Nepal", a new public-private partner initiative, Harilo partners with non-profit organizations including NGOs, charities and foundations in Nepal to help them purchase items from the US that are critical to their work but are either not available or too expensive in the local market. Harilo offers the same order and delivery service to non-profits as it does to its customers. We will order the items requested and take care of all customs, shipping and VAT logistics. But we will do it at cost, meaning $0 profit.
If your organization is interested in participating in Harilo’s public-private partnership initiative, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to hear from you.
Everyone welcome Sunny! He's one of our new spokespeople/models for our company and you'll soon see him on billboards and various advertisements for Harilo. His bio is at http://harilo.com/sunktm010.
We're still looking for a female model so please spread the word and have them contact us at email@example.com.
Yesterday Nepal Ambulance Service (NAS) stopped by to pick up critical equipment for their ambulances. NAS ordered these items from Harilo since they weren't available in the local market. Harilo offers its service at cost for nonprofit organizations. Looking forward to more ambulances on the road soon!
More photos of the delivery here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/harilo/sets/72157625952963903/.
Check out NAS's good work here: http://nepalambulanceservice.org/
We're looking for one male and one female model to be the spokespeople for Harilo billboards and advertisements. If you think you've got the stuff, send your CV and head-shot to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can now finally pay for Harilo memberships directly online without schlepping to our office on Kantipath (though you're still welcome to do so - come say hi). Check out the new "buy" buttons at http://harilo.com/pricing. Enjoy.

Great job Tom. I'm impressed. Who needs trucks anyway lol.
When I moved to Kathmandu last year, I was confused about all of the locks...everywhere in my apartment. Every drawer, cabinet and even the fridge has a lock. I'm still not sure why this is but, apparently, people are concerned about fridge crime in the U.S. now as well.
Have you been a victim of a fridge crime? The disappearance of a sandwich, drink, or special dip you were so anxiously awaiting to devour for lunch or dinner? Prevent such crimes from happening again with the Original Fridge Locker.
This metal cage, equipped with a secured combination lock, protects your most cherished groceries from that sneaky family member, roommate or coworker. Dimensions: 11 x 7.5 x 7.5 inches ; 2 pounds. Shipping Weight: 2 pounds

Some of us at Harilo are a little obsessed with the Premiership. So here's our latest contest: Who do you think are the top 3 players of the Premiership this season?
To enter the contest, find the "Premier League Fan Contest" post on our facebook page (hint: the post date is Feb.4) and respond as a comment by Feb. 10. Your name will be automatically entered to win one of our best Harilo prizes. Good luck! http://www.facebook.com/harilo
One of the more frequent questions people ask us (both on the phone and over comments and email) is "what is the status of my item" and "is my item ready for pickup". To make it simple to check your status, we've now released a simple API you can use to connect with other web services or to check an item status without logging in.
Simply enter the item# as follows: http://harilo.com/status/:id.:format
For example, to get the real time status of item# 7598 enter:
Enjoy and please let us know if you have any suggestions or feedback. We will soon let you send a SMS query with your item# and receive the same real time status over your mobile phone.
