Actress, producer, and humanitarian Salma Hayek has launched a fundraiser on CrowdRise, part of GoFundMe, to help her native country Mexico after the devastating earthquakes.

Hayek also donated $100,000 to the campaign.

“The people of my country have now suffered three natural disasters in a row,” said Hayek on her CrowdRise campaign. "Many children and families are hurt and in terrible need. I’m contributing $100,000 now to UNICEF which has teams on the ground responding. Please join me and contribute what you can and thank you."

Hayek also included her note in Spanish and posted videos in both English and Spanish. All funds raised will benefit UNICEF.
