UPDATED: Mexico Earthquake Relief Efforts and Links to Donate

As you may know, on the evening of September 7, a powerful 8.1 earthquake hit off the coast of Southern Mexico and killed at least 90 people, primarily in Chiapas and Oaxaca. Along with the death toll, the damage from the quake destroyed houses, businesses and more. 

We included a few links to the organizations in which we’ve donated or worked with before. Donations go toward basic necessities such as food, water, medicines, temporary shelter and long-term recovery assistance.
