Help me help Mexico (September 19)

Mexico is in a state of emergency. On September 19, a magnitude-7.1 earthquake hit central Mexico, primarily Puebla with continual ramifications in Mexico City. Over 44 buildings including schools, churches, apartment blocks have fallen to ruin, just in Mexico City.

The death toll has passed 225 people including 21 primary school children who were trapped under their building when it collapsed. 

Keeping the now-homeless under shelter and making sure they are fed is step 1 of a hundred. The locals are already collecting goods to take to the rescue squads but financial support will go a long way for them to buy tools, food and other resources.

My friend in Puebla lost his cousin and his cousin's wife who were trapped in their apartment when their building collapsed. His response was "I still can't believe that it happened to my family but at the end, it's not only my family. "

Help me help Mexico. Any donation will help, even a dollar.

I have listed two options below:

1) You can donate to the Red Cross directly.
Go to the "International Transfer" tab on your bank's website.
+ Account holder name: Cruz Roja Mexicana IAP
+ SWIFT Code: BMSXMXMM
+ Account number: 0404040406
+ Address: Ejercito Nacional No 1032, Colonia Los Morales, Zip Code 11510

2) You can donate to this GoFundMe page.
All proceeds I receive - gofundme will take 5% - will be transferred directly to my friend in Puebla who will be buying resources for rescue squads and donating remaining money to the causes outlined above.

If you have any questions, please contact me at vanessajiang1@gmail.com.
