Yesterday, Miley Cyrus took to her Facebook following and launched a fundraiser in support of KIND (Kids In Need of Defense). Using the social network's newest feature, Cyrus donated directly to the cause once setup to put into a motion a viral reaction to help reunite immigrant children that have been separated from their parents after Donald Trump took his zero-tolerance policy to inhumane levels at the U.S./Mexico border.

Channeling anger and using imagery that simply breaks the heart of humanity, the Cyrus backed fundraiser has raised more than $30,000 for KIND, helping provide legal services and support to families effected by the Trump administration's despicable actions towards immigrants in the United States. With an investment from over half a million people from more than 30 countries, this has officially become the largest fundraiser in Facebook's history.

When we show up in numbers, we win. May this victory be seen as a light in the fight for justice and as an infectious gesture that continues more lights to shine across our country. We care. We really do.
