Mean Girls Day typically honors the comedy classic’s legacy with memes and movies quotes, but this year Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert, Jonathan Bennett, and Daniel Franzese made a video urging fans to donate to their “Mean Girls for Las Vegas” campaign. The initiative will raise money for victims of Sunday might’s attack, which left at least 59 dead and over 500 injured.
“We know today is a special day. And that’s because of fans like you,” the video starts. “This year though, we’re doing things a little differently. We want to turn the attention to those who need it.”
In the video, they asked for $3 donations in honor of Oct. 3 to reach their goal of $300,000. All proceeds will go to the National Compassion Fund, a program in the National Center for Victims of Crime. The organization previously collected and distributed funds to victims of the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, the Aurora shooting in Colorado, and Sept. 11 attacks.
“We know fetch is never going to happen, but we can make this happen,” Chabert says.
