Thousands of people are sending money to Nepal via Western Union to help those in need, but a large chunk of that money isn’t getting to those who need it most.

I left Nepal to come to the US in 1996 and have called America my home ever since. Over the years, I have relied on companies like Western Union to get money to my family quickly and easily. But today I am asking Western Union to play their part in the Nepalese relief efforts and waive their usual service fee for people wanting to wire money to help the victims during this devastating time in our country's history.

In times like these every dollar has the potential to save a life. Join me and ask Western Union to waive their fees to make sure the victims get the most out of every donation.

My name is Deependra Adhikari. For the past 19 years I have called the US my home but I still have loved ones in my homeland of Nepal. After April 25th’s devastating earthquake I heard from cousins whose entire villages have been leveled, friends who have had to bury loved ones and endless tales of loss and hardship. And while the earthquake has come and gone the survivors still have an uncertain future.

During my two decades here I have seen that, in times of tragedy, Americans are often the first ones to stand up, open their wallets and lend a hand to help whoever needs it. From everyday people on the street to big businesses, I have seen them all pitch in whether the tragedy is at home or abroad.

Companies like Facebook, T-mobile and Google have all done their part and now I am asking for Western Union to do the same.

Join me and ask Western Union to do the right thing and waive their wire transfer fees to Nepal so that every dollar goes to the people who need it most, the victims of the earthquake.
