Now you can “book” a symbolic overnight stay in houses or apartments that were destroyed by the 7.1-magnitude earthquake that struck Central Mexico on Tuesday, September 19.

This peculiar proposal offered by Arriba Mexico, a platform created by Mexican publicists Édgar Elorza and Ángel Rodríguez, seeks to raise funds to build shelters and homes, through symbolic leases of uninhabitable spaces in Mexico City, Chiapas, Oaxaca, Morelos, and Puebla.

"With your donations, Arriba Mexico  is already placing shelters for homeless families."

The fund administrator is the Disaster and National Emergency Aid Committee (Comité de Ayuda a Desastres y Emergencias Nacionales abbreviated Cadena), a civil association founded 12 years ago to prevent and deal with natural disasters, with national and international presence.

Arriba Mexico does not have a bank account, so the contributions go directly to Cadena. Donations from other countries can be made through PayPal.

“It doesn’t matter which place you choose to book, 100% of the raised money will go to a housing reconstruction fund for the states of Morelos, Puebla, Oaxaca, Chiapas and Mexico City through CADENA a non-profit organization.”

The symbolic overnight stays range from MXN$50 to MXN$2,500 per night.
