A magnitude 7.1 earthquake hit Central Mexico on Tuesday, crumbling infrastructure and killing more than 230 people so far, including at least 25 school children. Families are still searching for their loved ones as rescue teams dig through rubble to uncover survivors. And hospital staff are doing their best to treat the hundreds of people injured during the second quake to rip through the country this month.
To help victims of the natural disaster, actress Salma Hayek is encouraging fans to contribute what they can to a fundraiser she created through CrowdRise. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hayek has already committed to donating $100,000 to help UNICEF’s relief efforts.
“I have lived through the aftermath of a disaster of this magnitude, and it’s horrific,” she said. “I am starting a CrowdRise to try to raise money to help the families that are going through this nightmare right now in Mexico.”
As of publishing time, Hayek’s campaign had raised over $ 645,000, with contributions from over 5,800 people.
