As of 3pm ET on Thursday (October 5), the fund had raised about $73,000 of their $300,000 goal.

ORIGINAL STORY (Wednesday, October 3): Every year on October 3rd, fans of the hit movie Mean Girls celebrate the occasion by sharing GIFs and YouTube videos. This year, however, the movie's cast members are calling on fans to do something more signficant for the holiday.

In honor of Mean Girls Day, the cast has started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for the victims (and their families) of Sunday night's tragedy in Las Vegas. 


Quick refresher if you haven't seen the film, by the way: There's an ICONIC scene in the movie where Lindsay Lohan's character (Cady Heron) says that her crush (Aaron Samuels who is played by Johnathan Bennett) asked her what day it was.

Cady Heron responded with a sassy tone: It's October 3rd. Ah, yes, true love is when you ask someone what day it is... 


Through a colalboration with the National Compassion Fund, the movie's cast is hoping to raise $300,000.

"We want to turn the attention to these who need it... in honor of Mean Girls Day," the cast said in a short 1 minute video launching the fundraiser.

Lacy Chabert, Jonathan Bennett, Amanda Seyfried, and Daniel Franzese all appeared on camera during the video.

"Guys, look. We know fetch is never gonna happen, but we CAN make this happen," Chabert (who played Gretchen Wieners in the 2004 comedy) said.
