I know that so many of us have been focused on recovery post-hurricanes. Right now, though, Mexico also needs our help.

On September 7th, an 8.1 magnitude earthquake ripped through Chiapas and Oaxaca. On the 19th, a 7.1 magnitude quake shook areas near Mexico City – and affected areas already hit on the 7th.

Brigada de Rescate Topos (website currently down) goes into fallen buildings to help get people – dead or alive – out. You can send them money via PayPal using the email donativos@brigada-rescate-topos.org.

You can donate through GoFundMe campaigns or YouCaring, too. Some notable campaigns:
