Stamping for Families blog hop
I created this card for our blog hop to promote keeping families together and reunification of those who have been separated. This is not about political affiliation but instead about compassion. My little boy is 3 and I haven't spent a night away from him in all that time. I cant imagine weeks or months not know where he was or who was looking after him. The idea alone has given me nightmares.
Here are a few links with ways to help:
The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, or RAICES, in Texas has a family reunification fund that helps undocumented immigrants pay bonds; usually at least $1500
The Arizona-based Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project provides legal services to immigrants and unaccompanied children.
Kids in Need of Defense partnered with Target to create Baby2Baby, a registry where you can purchase diapers and other essentials for immigrant children.
Purchase snacks, toiletries, and medicine for children through Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley’s Amazon wish list. The organization shelters immigrants released from custody.
I will be adding a $25 gift card to Butterfly Reflections Ink (not affiliated with this hop but my own personal donation) for anyone who comments on my blog post or adds a card to the link up below. Some of the other participants will be offering prizes as well!
