Today is October 3, known as “Mean Girls Day” among fans of the Tina Fey-penned film, thanks to a scene where Jonathan Bennett sets Lindsay Lohan’s character’s heart aflutter by asking her what day it is. Mean Girls obsessives have come up with all sorts of ways to celebrate their private holiday over the years, but now, some of the film’s stars are coming together to ask their followers to get constructive with their love.

People reports that Bennett, Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert, and Daniel Franzese—a.k.a. Aaron Samuels, Karen Smith, Gretchen Wieners, and Damian Leigh—are asking fans of the film to donate money to help victims and survivors of the shootings in Las Vegas earlier this week, which left 59 people dead and hundreds injured. The quartet of stars has set up a GoFundMe account, with all proceeds going to the National Compassion Fund, and are encouraging people to donate $3 a piece in honor of October 3.


The NCF publicizes itself as an organization that gives donations directly to victims of mass casualty crimes like the Vegas shootings. And while—as the video notes—we may never make “fetch” happen, fans of Mean Girls can at least do something to ease some people’s pain.
