Every cent counts when people donate money to help the victims of a natural disaster. I am from Nepal, and I need your help to make sure every dollar donated to Nepalese earthquake victims actually gets to the people who need it.

Thousands of well-wishers are opening their pocketbooks in solidarity with the overseas Nepalese community to help raise funds for the victims of this weeks devastating earthquake in Nepal. Most of the fundraising efforts have been through crowdfunding platforms like Indiegogo, GoFundMe and Crowdrise which have helped raise thousands of dollars to date. Yet, not every dollar is going to the victims. While these platforms are convenient, they levy processing fees that vary between 3 and 9%.

In this time of dire need, we request Indiegogo and Crowdrise to show support and let 100% of donations directly benefit the earthquake victims in Nepal.

The Nepalese government has declared a state of emergency after a magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck central the country this week. The earthquake has caused extensive damage and the number of people confirmed dead has topped 4,000 and is steadily rising as officials get information from the rugged countryside that makes up most of Nepal.

The survivors and relief organizations need every dollar donated to help aid in the relief efforts, take care of the wounded and begin to rebuild a country whose major cities have been left in ruin.  

That’s why the global community is requesting Indiegogo and Crowdrise to stand in solidarity  with the victims of this natural disaster so that all donations can directly benefit the earthquake victims in Nepal.

The international support for earthquake relief in Nepal has been overwhelming and we are very grateful for the assistance from foreign nations, organizations and businesses. Several foreign businesses such as Google, Facebook, Viber, Skype, AT&T and T-Mobile have showed support by providing tools to locate missing individuals, mark missing individuals as safe and make telephone calls to and from Nepal for free.

Help us request Indiegogo and Crowdrise to chip in too. Join me and thousands of Nepalese living overseas and request they waive their service fees for donations towards the earthquake victims in Nepal.

Thank You.
