#EstamosConLosNiños - How to Help the Border Children
In July, I wrote a post to help my readers understand the Child Migrant Crisis. Then I wrote about 3 ways your family can help the Border Kids. While the media has lost their focus on the issue, the reality is that there are still many children who are awaiting immigration hearings.
They still need our help.
Tonight, a special Twitter party hosted by Latism will be showing their support of these border children as they discuss the situation and the special Save the Children donation fund that has been set up to provide critical funding for basic necessities (such as food, clothes, housing, medical care, education, and legal representation) to these children. This fundraiser is being supported by Univision, Catholic Charities, and other organizations.
If you are the type of person who prefers to donated $10 or more to important causes, this may be the solution for you. Perhaps your son or daughter would like to make a difference by raising funds, but doesn't know what to do with the money he or she has raised. This would be a great place to channel those funds.
You can learn more about Save the Children and their work here.
Or if your family/children would prefer to actually purchase items to help the Border Children, then see my post above on three ways to help the Border Kids. You'll find not only ideas for materials/products to purchase, but a link directing you to the charities that are working with the children so you'll know where to ship the items.
To join the Twitter party tonight at 9 pm EST, simply follow the following hashtags: #EstamosConLosNiños and/or #Latism
I hope to "see" you there!
