Alfonso Cuarón Launches Global Fundraising Effort, Mexico Rises



Multi-Platform Initiative Invites the Worldwide Community to Help Victims of the Recent Earthquakes in Mexico

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In the wake of the devastating earthquakes and powerful aftershocks that recently hit Mexico, Alfonso Cuarón, with support from Anonymous Content and Participant Media, has launched a multi-platform initiative called Mexico Rises, aimed at providing urgent relief to impacted communities in Mexico.

Mexico Rises Earthquake Fund

Inspired by the tireless efforts of local citizens and first-responders, Cuarón launched the fund, powered by GlobalGiving?the largest global crowdfunding community connecting nonprofits, donors and companies in nearly every country?to provide affected citizens with food, water, medication and shelter, as well as support to obtain long-term sustainable work necessary for recovery.

Cuarón stated: "The devastating earthquakes in Mexico have elicited a deeply moving response from the Mexican people. In the history of our community, we have never been so informed, united and connected as we are right now. Citizens have taken this matter into their own hands and have selflessly and tirelessly worked together to come to the aid of their neighbors. Following their inspiring lead, I'm compelled to take action and join them to help begin the reconstruction of our beautiful country as it starts to recover from these tragic events."

A video?written by Janet Champ, designed by Rock Paper Scissors, a52 and Elastic, and featuring music by Steven Price, who composed the score specially for this piece?was created in support of the campaign as a message of hope and encouragement. Links to the video below:
