Thank you to everyone who donated to and/or shared this fundraiser to fight family separation at the southern border of the United States. Through your generosity we ended up raising more than 5x the amount I initially thought achievable—incredible.
I’ve always had reservations towards these types of fundraisers. Asking friends and family for money is something I’ll never grow comfortable doing, and on top of that for a cause that can be politicized so easily. Using Facebook as a platform for them is also something I would have loved to avoid, but they do make it incredibly easy to set up these fundraisers and reach an audience.
All of this is what makes me so so grateful for your donations! I could not have asked for a better and more meaningful birthday present.
