Facebook is contributing $1 million to Cruz Roja Mexicana Sede Nacional to support the relief efforts on the ground. We’re also partnering with UNICEF to waive fees on all donations to their organization made through our tools that will go to recovery efforts in Mexico.
Thanks to everyone in our community who’s doing their part to help people recover. #FuerzaMéxico’
