Hey everyone, My name is Jennifer Ruiz, also known as Jen_ny69 on social media.

I am devastated by the earthquake tragedies that have recently happened in Mexico. I have a family of my own and cannot imagine what it's like to go through something like this. I am starting this gofundme as a way for me to to use my influence and following for a good cause. Anything is appreciated!

All proceeds from this fund will be donated to a random local relief group that I found called Topos Mexico which you can read about here  and also here or another verified legitimate relief effort group. Please note that all efforts will be made to make sure the correct people receive the money.

Please note that a direct donation will be made to their PayPal account on Monday morning 9/25 or earlier if we hit our goal.

EDIT 9/29:

Hello all! Thank you for your amazing support thus far, and I wanted to give you an update on the funds. We've made the decision to direct the money raised here to Love Army for Mexico. You can see their campaign here: https://www.gofundme.com/lovearmymexico

Because of their accounts being in Mexico and confusion on how Topos uses the funds, we decided that the team at Love Army Mexico was best in getting this money to the people that need it now.

We feel the money will be safe in their hands and used well to aid those who need it. We'll be adding Love Army as the direct beneficiary of the funds raised, so the money will go straight to them. Thank you for your continued support!

Update
We've contacted Topos Mexico/Tlatelolco and spoke to Fernando Alvarez who is the director of Topos (google him) and he confirmed to us that they are a legitimate organization and that they accept donations via bank transfer or Paypal.

Topos has a wikipedia page:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Topos_de_Tlatelolco
at the bottom of the Wikipedia page under "External Links" there is a link to their webpage where you can see their PayPal and Bank information for donations.

We will post more updates soon

Hey guys just want to say thank you for your donations, we’ve hit over $30,000 within the first day! This is amazing honestly. I know there has been concerns regarding the charity for which this money is intended for, we verified that Topos Mexico is a legitimate organization and they do accept donations, especially at this time of need.

There has also been concerns about how the money will be handled, GoFundMe allows the money to be transferred directly to the organization WITHOUT ENTERING MY BANK ACCOUNT. This GoFundMe will be open until Monday September 25, 2017 because this money needs to be sent out ASAP!! Feel free to contact GoFundMe and Topos Mexico if you have any concerns. We are continuing to do our research before we actually send out the money to make sure that it goes into the hands of the right people.

I will be giving updates here so please spread the word


Thank you
