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?
In the largest single fundraiser ever on Facebook, more than 360,000 people have raised more than $14 million to reunite immigrant parents with their children. https://t.co/9MySW2qpUi— USA TODAY (@USATODAY) June 21, 2018
