Mexico Earthquake Relief Funds

Mexico is the loss of hundreds of people after a catastrophic 7.1 magnitude earthquake that hit on September 19, 2017 (on the 32nd anniversary of the deadliest earthquake in Mexico's modern history).

While hundreds of vounteers are on the ground digging through the rubles and getting people out, paramedics and first responders are in dire need of emergency medical supplies such as gloves, bandages, first aid kits, stuture kits, etc.

100% of funds will be directed to the Brigada Internacional de Rescate Tlatelolco-Azteca A.C (Emergency Medical, Safety and Rescue Technicians), better known as the Topos de Tlatelolco , a professional non-profit Mexican rescue team.

Their specialty is searching for victims under the debris of collapsed buildings and giving first aid. One of the group's original founders, Hector "El Chino" Méndez states that one of the things that distinguish his group from others is that they have the "balls to go in where no one else will."

This is a legitimate organization and these heros are saving lives. Please help me get the medical first aid equipment they need in order to help them on the ground.

Thank you for your generosity. Every little bit helps.

UPDATE: due to the overwhelming support, the funds will be donated to Los Topos, Red Cross and smaller grassroots organizations doing relief work on the ground. We will

Update with receipts as we get access to funds.
