1. Meeting was shocked by the devastating earthquakes in our motherland. In this crisis, meeting agreed and decided to establish a “Nepal Earthquake Disaster Relief Team, USA” to raise the emergency fund and coordinate with all other community volunteers/donor who are generously lending their support toward this massive crisis. Rita Tiwari has unanimously been nominated as the Coordinator of the team . Meeting assigned Raju Joshee, Hari K Sharma, and Madhu S Bhandari to establish a donation team web page by tonight.
2. Meeting agreed to join either GoFundMe or PayPal (as convenience) accounts created by NPPA and other organizations respectively. The team will coordinate throughout the USA to collect donation, consolidate (bank account), and transfer it (funds) to the needy victims appropriately and effectively. All the local organizations’ fund raising portal will be linked to the team web page. Any donor can click the link for their generous donation from the team’s web portal. http://www.gofundme.com/NepalNeedHelp?
