Celebs Helping Families Separated at Border

posted by Ric -

By now many of us have seen and heard about the horrible situations taking place at the U.S.-Mexico border, and Steph and Ayesha Curry are taking action. Usually situations like this are hard to process because as a spectator we feel very helpless, but thanks to celebs like the Curry's we are being given ways that we can help through donations. Both Ayesha and Steph shared the following post on their Instagrams:

The Curry's aren't the only ones trying to spread the word on ways we can help though! Everyone's favorite Twitter Troll Slayer, Chrissy Teigen, and her husband, John Legend, have also been putting the word out and trying to bring awareness to the situation. They recently spoke out about a donation they made to the ACLU to try to help the countless families that have been torn apart in just the last few weeks,

happy birthday

Thankfully, it looks like Chrissy and John's birthday gesture for the president resonated with the internet because she posted this a few days later thanking her followers for their own contributions to the ACLU which will be attempt to stop the current situation affecting thousands of innocent children:

You.

Natalie Portman started a petition, which you can view/sign here and reposted this moving quote Shonda Rhimes had put up.

#FamiliesBelongTogether #Repost @shondarhimes How lucky am I to be able to love on my kids today when so many moms won't get to? Call your senators (202-224-3121) and demand that they end family separation.

Other celebs that have expressed their rage over the immigration situation going on include Kristen Bell, Jimmy Kimmel and America Ferrera and Amy Schumer who is spreading the word about Natalie's petition

Thank God for sanity and nuance.

1) Call your reps at (202) 224-3121- tell them to END the separation of families at the border (ask your Senators to pass the Keep Families Together Act and your House Rep to pass the HELP Separated Children Act). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2) Donate to supportkind.org to protect vulnerable children at our border. 3) Use this frame (facebook.com/profilepicframes) on Facebook with a photo of you and your kids to show that you will not stand for families being ripped apart. #TORNAPART #KEEPFAMILIESTOGETHER

Heart broken 💔and pissed off 😡that Trump has made it official US policy to separate children from their parents at our border. Hundreds of children have been ripped from their families: 658 kids in first 13 days of the program alone. You know those moments u read about in history books & think, “How could people let that happen?” We’re in one of those moments. PLEASE 🙏🏽 Add your name to the petition now and find an event near you on June 1st. Link in bio. #EndFamilySeparation #FamiliesBelongTogether #WhereAreTheChildren

Oprah's BFF, Gayle King, is also getting involved by going down to the border and reporting for CBS about the situation happening at these toddler detention centers. Winfrey helped spread the word about the report via her own Instagram:
