Mexican celebrities along with companies, have expressed their support, donated and/or started campaigns to receive donations after the 7.1 magnitude earthquake that struck Mexico on Tuesday. Politicians on the other hand, have been criticized of offering only taxpayers’ money.

Celebrities like actress Salma Hayek, soccer stars Javier “Chicharito” Hernández Balcázar and Miguel Layún Prado and racecar driver Sergio “Checo” Pérez Mendoza have all donated money for the victims of earthquake.

In the past days, a proposal for political parties in Mexico to donate half or all their campaign funds towards the rebuiling of Mexico has been circulating on social media and has been backed by some political figures.

Revolutionary Institutional Party (PRI) President Enrique Ochoa Reza said that his party is proposing to donate 25 percent of its annual funding.

Others like Social Encounter Hugo Eric Flores opposes this initiative because he claims that it would be illegal plus parties like his are at an economical disadvantage.

“We only receive 200 million pesos for the whole country. I wish we could donate all of that,” said Flores.

People are demanding that politicians make donations out of their own pockets like celebrities, rather than donating campaign funds which are technically taxpayers’ dollars.
