Relief to NEPAL (4-25 earthquake)

We are Nepali undergraduates at Duke University. A few hours ago (02:12 on Apr 25, 2015) a huge earthquake measuring 7.8 in Richter Scale struck Nepal. While we are in the US and can't lend our support to our friends in Nepal directly, we are starting a GoFundMe to help them recover from the devastating earthquake in the most effective way we can.
Details about the earthquake have not been substantial; according to initial reports, more than 700 have died. We will keep updating as news roll in.
The amount collected will be used directly in providing relief to those affected by the quake.  We will be returning to Nepal in less than two weeks and will work with local organizations in the relief process. We will use the money to provide food, clean water, and shelter to the victims. We will create a Facebook page for the campaign, and once we get to Nepal and start working on the relief process, we will post the updates and pictures through the Facebook page; we will also provide details on how the money is being used.
