It’s October 3, and you know what that means, it’s “Mean Girls” day. You knew that right?

Apparently, this day in October is greatly celebrated by fans who cannot wait for annual posts from the cast on social media. 

But, this year that message is a somber one, as it comes on the heels of an American tragedy. The cast of the Tina Fey penned screenplay and pop culture favorite “Mean Girls” is making a plea for a cause and that is to help the victims of the Las Vegas massacre.

They have released a YouTube video asking people to make a donation to their GoFundMe and hope to reach their goal of $300,000. That money will go to the National Compassion Fund.

"Do something grool today," reads the GoFunMePage. "Let's hit this goal together. We might not make fetch happen, but we can make this happen."

You may notice the absence of "Mean Girls" star Lindsay Lohan, but she took to Instagram to commemorate the day with an animated GIF. 

So far, the cast in the video have raised $30,988.
