Salma Hayek Donates $100 Thousand For Mexico Earthquake Victims

Following Tuesday's powerful earthquake that shook Mexico City, people have already started to contribute to recovery efforts – including celebs. 

The latest Hollywood star to lend out a helping hand is film actress and producer, Salma Hayek. The Desperado star has launched a campaign with CrowdRise, the world’s largest crowdfunding platform dedicated exclusively to charitable fundraising, to help raise money for the victims of the recent natural disaster that has killed more than 200 people.

The deadly tremor hits home with Hayek, who was born and raised in Mexico. The 51-year-old has also pledged to donate $100,000 for UNICEF while reflecting on the 1985 earthquake she was forced to live through.
