The fundraising site allows users to donate to help rebuild Mexican homes that were lost in last month's earthquake

Fundraising site Arriba México may look like an Airbnb spin-off at first glance, but the website isn’t actually a place for travelers to find lodging. Instead, the site features profiles of homes destroyed in the recent earthquake in Mexico, and it allows visitors to donate funds to help rebuild the houses and support those who have been left homeless.

To use the site, simply choose a profile and select a range of days, just like Airbnb. The cost ranges from $15 to $250 per night and the total amount will be your donation to the cause. The funds will go to CADENA, a non-profit disaster relief agency.

One week after the launch of the site, which was conceived by independent Mexico City agency Anonimo and developed in just three days by digital content company Aguita de Limon, the amount of donated funds totaled over $15,000.
