The cast of "Glee" is keeping Naya Rivera's spirit alive by launching a holiday fundraiser in her honor.

Rivera drowned in July during a boating trip with her 4-year-old son on Lake Piru. The fundraiser benefits Alexandria House, one of Rivera's favorite charities. The Los Angeles non-profit helps women and children transition from emergency shelter to permanent housing.

To promote the GoFundMe fundraiser Rivera's former castmates created a promotional video. They say it's in honor of the actor's annual Christmas Party. Rivera would invite guests to donate gifts to children in need.
