Oct. 4 (UPI) -- The cast of Mean Girls including Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert, Daniel Franzese and Jonathan Bennett, are asking fans to donate to a GoFundMe page that will help benefit the victims of the recent Las Vegas shooting.

The campaign was started Tuesday in celebration of Mean Girls Day where fans on social media celebrate the 2004 comedy that also starred Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams by sharing their favorite quotes and moments from the film.

Mean Girls Day takes place every Oct. 3 in reference to a famous line given by Lohan in the film.

"In honor of Mean Girls Day, we're asking each of you, the groolest fans out there to help," Chabert and Bennett say collectively in a video shared on Bennett's Twitter Tuesday that asks fans to each donate $3 to their GoFundMe page that supports the National Compassion Fund, a program in the National Center for Victims of Crime.

The cast is hoping to raise $300,000 for the organization that previously worked with the victims of the Pulse Nightclub shooting and the Aurora shooting. As of now, the campaign has raised over $60,000.
