The cast of Mean Girls has taken the opportunity surrounding the hype of October 3rd, also known as Mean Girls day, to raise money for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting this past Sunday via a GoFundMe campaign.
The GoFundMe page, which was created by Brian Tyler Cohen, features a video of Amanda Seyfried, Jonathan Bennett, Lacey Chabert and Daniel Franzese asking fans to donate $3 each in order to reach their goal of $300,000. In the video, Chabert says, “We know fetch is never going to happen, but we can make this happen.” All four actors have posted these videos on their social media accounts, and the campaign has gained the attention of news outlets in the last few hours.
Take a look at one-minute video posted on the GoFundMe page.
The campaign works directly with the National Compassion Fund, which also collected funds for the Pulse Nightclub shooting in 2016, and the Aurora shooting in 2012. 100% of the money donated to this campaign will be distributed to the victims of the shooting through the National Compassion Fund. As of now, the campaign has already raised $27,222.
Donate to their GoFundMe campaign here, and be sure to share it on social media to get others involved.
