UPDATE: We raised $775 for RAICES Texas in July! This was by far the most successful We Care Wednesday in the three years we have been doing this. Want to do more? Donate directly.
It has been a heartbreaking time for all of us at gather here. With images of families separated at our borders and a humanitarian crisis unfolding before us there are days when we feel like there's no bottom to this cruelty. This We Care Wednesday we would like to do what we can to help those families at the southern border. Founded in 1986 as the Refugee Aid Project by community activists in South Texas, RAICES has grown to be the largest immigration legal services provider in Texas. With offices in Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio, RAICES is a frontline organization in the roiling debate about immigration and immigrants in the world. "We believe in a compassionate and just world 🌎 where ALL people have the right to migrate and human rights are guaranteed. We don't need walls. It's time to #BuildABridge. Take the pledge and join the campaign."
*In January 2017 we launched our We Care Wednesday initiative. By donating 5% of our sales each Wednesday, we were able to raise $9,000 for Greater Boston non-profits in 2017. In 2018 we raised $11,000 for Greater Boston non-profits. This kind of targeted weekly giving is just another way we can focus our community-based business on doing good in all the ways we can. We are proud to continue this initiative in 2019.*
