FUNDRAISER FOR BORDER ANGELS

This week's organization is:

BORDER ANGELS

Border Angels is an all volunteer, non-profit organisation that advocates for human rights, humane immigration reform, and social justice with a special focus on issues related to the US-Mexican border. 

Border Angels’ mission is to reduce the number of fatalities occurring along the Californian border through the placement of life saving water stations in the desert.

Many years of devastating economic and immigration policies have created a situation where thousands of people from Mexico and Latin America risk their lives each year crossing into the United States in the hope of finding a better life. Since 1994, an estimated 10,000 people have lost their lives during the journey due to extreme weather, lack of food and water, and the overall perilous nature of the trip.

Border Angels also works to serve San Diego County’s immigrant population through various migrant outreach programs, such as Day Laborer outreach and a free legal assistance program.

DONATE TO BORDER ANGELS

In addition to my donation, here's a song called 'We Welcome You Today' by Fred Rogers.

Immigration is obviously a very complex issue. What is not complex is caring for each other as human beings. It is our responsbility as human beings to look out for one another, regardless of who we are or where we come from. We must show empathy for those in need and help them however we can. 

So I play this song with the hope that one day we will live in a world without borders, without flags, without xenophobia of those we don't know or understand. Until that day comes, however, I hope you'll join me in supporting organizations like Border Angels as they continue to help immigrants and refugees. Thank you so much to everyone at Border Angels for helping to welcome those in need!
