Our Casa de Paz community rallied together and:
- Bonded out 13 parents separated from their children at the border under the zero tolerance policy for a total of $28,000
- Purchased flights for 27 parents to reunite with their families for a total of $8,648
- Sent calling cards to 29 parents so they could locate and speak with their children for a total of $580
In total we raised $45,876 to support families separated by immigrant detention. THAT is something to celebrate!
"These moments of celebration make us pause and be mindful, and that boosts our well-being. Mini-celebrations can plump up the positive emotions which make it easier to manage the daily challenges that cause major stress."
I'd love to hear how you chose to celebrate this accomplishment!
