It's October 3rd And The 'Mean Girls' Cast Is Fundraising For Victims Of The Las Vegas Mass Shooting

On National "Mean Girls" Day, no less.

"It's October 3rd" — but it's also a good day to give back. The Mean Girls cast has reunited for Mean Girls Day, a hallowed tradition celebrated each year on the day Aaron asked Cady what day it was in math class, to help raise money for victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting.

In a GoFundMe video, we see Jonathan Bennett (the aforementioned Aaron), Lacey Chabert (Gretchen), Daniel Franzese (Damian), and Amanda Seyfried (Karen) join forces once more to ask fans to spare just $3 to help them reach their goal of amassing $300,000 for the National Compassion Fund. At the time of publication, nearly $30,000 had been raised in less than a day.

"We know today is a special day. And that's because of fans like YOU. It's October 3rd. It's October 3rd. This year, though, we're doing things a little differently," the collective group says in a video, alluding to the tragedy that has left 59 dead and more than 500 injured. "We want to turn the attention to those who need it. After Sunday's night's tragic events in Las Vegas, let's give back."

"In honor of Mean Girls Day, we're asking each of you, the groolest fans out there, to help," they continue. "Guys, look. We know fetch is never gonna happen but we CAN make this happen. On October 3rd, I'll ask you what day it is — but we'll also ask you to help. So, you go, Glen Coco."

The National Compassion Fund, which is part of the National Center for Victims of Crime, is an organization that has collected and distributed funds in times of need. It has aided victims of terrorist attacks such as 9/11 as well as shootings such as 2016's Pulse Nightclub, 2012's Sandy Hook, and 1999's Columbine.

This is just one of the many ways people are reacting to the senseless violence in Las Vegas. Some are donating blood and others are trying to heal with music, while what occurred Sunday night has prompted discussion about how to talk about shootings with kids and changed opinions about gun control and the Second Amendment.
