Actress pledges $100k donation

By Staff Reporter

Mexican-born actress Salma Hayek is donating $100,000 to help rescue efforts.

The 51-year-old posted a video message on Instagram in which she revealed not only was she making the donation, but that she had survived the 1985 earthquake that devastated the country's capital city.

"After the 1985 earthquake, I was evacuated from my building," said Hayek. "A lot of friends died, including an uncle. I have lived through the aftermath of a disaster of this magnitude and it's horrific.

"I am starting a CrowdRise to try to raise money to help families going through this."
