Salma Hayek is helping the victims of the catastrophic earthquake in Mexico City that happened on Tuesday, and she's "imploring" fans to join her in aiding these families.
"After the 1985 earthquake in Mexico City, I was evacuated from my building. A lot of my friends died, including an uncle that was very, very close to me," the 51-year-old actress recalls in a video on her Instagram. "I have lived through the aftermath of a disaster of this magnitude, and it's horrific."
Hayek donated $100K to UNICEF, which as the star explains, has teams on the ground responding at the sites.
"I implore to your hearts, to the goodness of your hearts and your compassion to help with anything that you can give," she says.

The tremblor came on the 32nd anniversary of Mexico's deadliest earthquake in modern history in 1985.
Sadly, by Wednesday the death toll rose to at least 225, according to NBC News.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.
