Miley Cyrus launched a Facebook fundraiser on Monday to help migrant children who have been separated from their families. The donations, collected through her Happy Hippie Foundation, brought in nearly $30,000 in less than 24 hours.
Description from the Facebook post:
"Happy Hippie and I believe EVERYONE has the right to be with their families and deserves a safe place to call their home. Thousands of migrant children remain detained and separated from their families RIGHT NOW. These are children and families who are escaping violence in their home countries and want a future where they can be safe and together. Join me in supporting KIND, a nonprofit working to protect the basic rights of unaccompanied children in the United States. Funds will be used to get families legal representation so they can be reunited."
