Facebook Fundraiser Raises $12 Million For Separated Immigrant Families

posted by Kari Steele -

Charlotte and Dave Willner started a Facebook fundraiser hoping to raise at least $1500 to reunite an immigrant child with their parents, and they far exceeded their goal. 

 As of Wednesday, 300,000 donors have raised more than $14 million dollars, and the page continues to bring in more than $10,000 a minute!  Money raised will go to two projects: The Legal Representation Advocacy, and Education for Universal Representation for Unaccompanied Children and the Family Reunification and Bond Fund: Free Our Families.  

How do you feel about this amount of money that's being raised through Facebook?
