The biggest struggle is feeling helpless like there’s nothing I can do to change the situation. But luckily, there ARE things we can all do about this!!!
I wanted to pass along 3 things you can do today to help the heart-breaking situation that’s happening with the babies and children on our border:
1. Go here to tell Congress you’re not okay with this and they need to find a solution
2. Find an event near you on June 30th and show up to show your support. I’ll be going to the Chicago march if anyone wants to join me 🙂
3. An amazing nonprofit is sending each child in the detention centers cards and teddy bears. The cards (in English or Spanish – but I’m guessing Spanish is better) should be focused on welcome and comfort for the kids—and children’s artwork is especially appreciated.
Make cards and send teddy bears by July 4th to:
4470 West Sunset Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90027
And money is a great way to help too. Together Rising gives every dollar directly to the people working on the ground to help.
I have full faith that we will get past what’s happening right now. There are too many good people in this country who know better. We just need to show up and do our part to end this. If I sound like a robot, it’s because I’m trying to remain calm and not send out an email filled with rage 🙂
Thanks for being an amazing human being and for doing what you can to help these babies and children!
