Although we are relieved every separated child is now with at least one parent, this is not a happy ending.

As of Sunday, at least 377 people, including parents, remain in ICE custody -- some of whom may be residing, working and raising families in the US legally. Even those who have been released have lost vital wages, are unable to return to work, and their ankle bracelets are a cruel reminder of pending deportation hearings, which may separate them from their families indefinitely.

In honor of your heartbreak over this trauma, @together.rising has made a $20,000 donation to Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance (@MIRAStruggle) a local, grassroots coalition that is actively responding to the short and long-term needs of these families. 
Together Rising exists to turn our collective heartbreak into effective action, and we are honored to stand with you to help keep these families together. 
This situation is changing quickly — for these families and families facing similar trauma. Be assured we are continuing to monitor and assess how we can continue to fund support for these families in a responsible and effective way as their long-term needs evolve.

Hi, my loves. Just a reminder that no matter how today goes, it’s almost something awesome. 
Please don’t forget to remind your kiddos that at school - they don’t need to be the best at anything at all. They just need to be kind and brave. That’s all any of us need to be, ever. 
Carry on, warriors. Love you.

Last night Abby and I felt afraid and angry and overwhelmed by the world and we sat down on the couch and listened to this song quietly together. 
There are so many questions right now. Somehow the answer to all of them is a woman singing: Mercy, now. 
Mercy to you, to your babies, to everyone’s babies- mercy to every last one of us. 
Find the song, loves. Listen tonight. I love you, G *

MERCY NOW 
By @marygauthier 
My father could use a little mercy now.
The fruits of his labor fall and rot slowly on the ground.
His work is almost over-  it won't be long, he won't be around.
I love my father, he could use some mercy now.

My brother could use a little mercy now.
He's a stranger to freedom, he's shackled to his fear and his doubt.
The pain that he lives in it's almost more than living will allow- 
I love my brother - he could use some mercy now. 
My church and my country could use a little mercy now. 
As they sink into a poisoned pit - it's going to take forever to climb out.
They carry the weight of the faithful who follow them down - 
I love my church and country, they could use some mercy now.

Every living thing could use a little mercy now. 
Only the hand of grace can end the race towards another mushroom cloud.
People in power, they'll do anything to keep their crown- 
I love life and life itself could use some mercy now.

Yeah, we all could use a little mercy now.
I know we don't deserve it but we need it anyhow.
We hang in the balance dangle 'tween hell and hallowed ground.
And every single one of us could use some mercy now.
Every single one of us could use some mercy now.
Every single one of us could use some mercy now.

The above passage is from my book, Love Warrior.
Pain is often the receipt of love. It’s proof we paid the price. It’s holy, perfect, exactly right. 
So let’s quit grabbing away each other’s pain and instead just say: I see your pain. Thank you for trusting me enough to share it with me. I’ll sit with you in it. 
Love you.

I know that the world is nuts and that life is overwhelming and difficult and scary. But also - this is Drew, Abby’s and my goddaughter. We are going to baptize her in the river this week. Just Drew, her godparents, her family. We’re not asking anybody’s permission first. We’re gonna invoke Buechner...
“Welcome to the world, Drew. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don’t be afraid.” (If you’re having a particularly hard day, swipe through to hear her first real laugh.)

Today my main order of business is waiting by the phone for the USWNT to call me and ask me to be the new head coach.
My platform is as follows:
2. Hire Abby as my Vice Coach or Understudy Coach or whatever they call that other coachy person who sits next to the Main Coach on the cute little couch bench. 
3. Cancel goalies cause too much pressure. Alyssa and Ashlyn and AD are pardoned but that’s it. 
4. Order VARs for all of our homes so we can officially see who hit who first.
5. Rainbow costumes for all teams.
6. PAY THE WOMEN.
7. Make the little timer count DOWN instead of up because the soccer is confusing enough already. 
8. Helmets and orange slices for all. 
9. Hire myself as lead of singalong intermission show.
10. Invite all of you to all games and only attire allowed in stadium is Pajamas. 
I forgot number one so just add PAY THE WOMEN again. 
That is all. Please vote for me. #USWNT

Four Things For You To Know About Liz Gilbert on Her 50th Birthday: 
1️⃣. She is a dancer. She begins every single one of her days by dancing. She came to stay with Abby and me recently and as we were sipping early morning coffee in our family room, Liz said: Okay! Time to Dance! She walked over to Alexa and put on some music and then she began floating and spinning wildly all around the house. Abby and I looked at each other, shrugged and began floating and spinning wildly all around the house. At one point I looked at my wife and friend- Sporty & Spirit Spice – floating and spinning and laughing and I thought: Well, if I die now, that’d be okay.
Lizzie, thank you for reminding us all to dance. .

2️⃣. She is a fairy godmother. Every so often I open an envelope from her and 2 things fall out: a check for Together Rising & a note that says “I believe in you. Keep going.” She does this all secretly, which is why I’ll never tell anyone. 
Lizzie, thank you for believing in this community. .

3️⃣. She is a friend. When I am afraid or confused, I reach out in my usual flailing panic but my fear never shakes her. She is not afraid, so she does not offer advice or join me in my worry. She just listens and then says, in a different way each time: “Remember who you are. I love you.” Lizzie, thank you for loving me so well and steadily. You make me want to live as the woman you believe me to be.
Thank you for reminding all of us to believe in ourselves. .

4️⃣. Liz’s dream for her 50th birthday is for the world to learn about and support a program near to her beautiful heart: Row, New York –a non-profit that teaches kids from economically challenged NYC neighborhoods the sport of competitive rowing —and also provides help with homework, SAT prep, college applications, and any emotional support they may need. The kids in this program have a stunning track record graduating from high school on time and attending college. Liz is raising funds for them today and she is MATCHING DONATIONS DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR.

MEET SUPERMANTHONY!!!: -- a  9-year-old superstar who leaves his doctors amazed by continuing to do things they said he’d never do!

Anthony – whose mom calls him “a fierce fighter with the biggest fighting heart and spirit ever” -- has multiple medical needs, including cerebral palsy and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (a connective tissue disorder causing hypermobile joints and pain). .
Anthony’s Warrior Mama, 29-year-old Elizabeth, who also has Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, says Anthony loves stronger than anyone she’s ever met.  Yet, as he has become a thriving big kid, it has become near impossible for Elizabeth to move Anthony between his wheelchair and car seat and to get the wheelchair in and out of their sedan. The family desperately needs a van equipped with a wheelchair lift.

For three years, Elizabeth has been working tirelessly to raise money for a van -- while also working hard to support Anthony and his younger brother.  She’s held at least 5 fundraisers, and after all of her hard work, and the generous contributions of her community, she was able to raise two-fifths of the van’s cost. .

Out of options, Elizabeth turned to you -- through @together.rising -- for help. 
TODAY, YOU ARE GIVING THIS WARRIOR FAMILY SUPERWHEELS! 
YOU’RE GETTING ANTHONY A NEW VAN!!!! Now, Elizabeth can get Anthony safely in and out of the vehicle, and take him to and from his appointments -- and everywhere else a Superhero needs to be.

Their lives will be a little bit easier – they will breathe a little bit easier – because of you.  Thank you.  Like hundreds of other miracles you make possible every year, you gave this love offering to Anthony and his family through your generous one-time and monthly giving to Together Rising. .

Thank you for being miracles makers. 
Thank you for being the helpers. 
LOVE

You – the beloved people of the impossible – are incredible. 
45,537 of you beautiful people, over a period of 7 days, gave @together.rising $2,632,558.79 to provide children who are being detained in atrocious conditions across this country with emergency relief, and to fund long-term legal accountability to end this disaster. 
Every penny of this $2,632,558.79 you gave to Together Rising represents your work, sacrifice, love and hope. We honor this gift by entrusting every single penny to the most effective, steadfast, heroic warriors on the ground – those who are healing and protecting these children. 
More than two-thirds of the funding is already deployed in urgent, live-saving work: $900,000 to Holly Cooper and her incredible team at the Immigration Law Clinic at UC Davis Law, and another $900,000 to Neha Desai and her fierce advocates at The National Center for Youth Law – both of whom, as attorneys of record in the crucial FLORES settlement have the unique ability to access any detention facility in the nation. 
These two brilliant, courageous women devote their lives to rescuing and defending these children.  What they have already done with such little funding is astonishing.  With your dollars, their reach and impact will be magnified exponentially: to travel to detention centers to inspect and investigate abuse, interview the children, remove them to protect their health and safety, and build legal cases to demand these atrocities end.  Just this week, these warriors won an order on their legal demand for emergency relief for children detained in Texas. 
We are currently finalizing our examination, interviews and vetting of the several other advocates who will be entrusted with the balance of $832,558.79. You will be the first to know when we determine the best and highest use of those funds to protect and defend these children. 
There is no joy, honor, or responsibility greater than doing this work with you.  Together, let’s be the people of the impossible forever.

Girls are trained to prioritize others’ comfort over our own safety. We are conditioned to honor politeness over our own instincts. We want to be accommodating even more than we want to be safe, or comfortable, or happy, or freaking alive.
Do you know where most women die from choking? In the bathroom. We start to choke, then we leave the table so as not to disturb anyone. Then we die, alone, so that we don’t disturb the dining folks...
I teach my children to honor their emotional and physical responses to people, places and ideas.
When they have to choose between abandoning their own instincts or abandoning some cultural idea of female politeness - I teach them to abandon politeness. 
The other day, we were at a store and Amma got very quiet, I noticed a shift in her being. ..She said: mama, I don’t like that man’s energy. 
Let’s go, I said. 
All of this goes for boys, too. And all those between gender and beyond gender. 
Rock the boat. 
Choose safe, choose happy, choose comfortable, choose alive.
Love. G

Two Million Dollars. You raised $2,052,301 in two days for emergency response to, and long-term legal accountability for, the child detention crisis.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. .

I love us. I have a vision of myself at eighty, sitting on my porch, thinking about how much good we did together, how much we laughed and cried and suffered and celebrated and sang and danced and served together and thinking: How did I get so lucky? To be on this earth with you. To be One Of Us. To spend my one wild and precious life in this glorious movement of fierce-hearted helpers. .

We live in hard, scary times. It’s enough to break your heart.  But heartbreak is love. And love is the most powerful force on this Earth. Together, let’s keep unleashing it on the world forever. .

With Relentless Love, Fury & Gratitude,
G & @together.rising .

Also:  We know many are just learning about this crisis and this fundraiser and will still want to donate. For the rest of the month, 100% of the donations @together.rising receives from you will go to emergency response and long-term strategy for detained children. Thank you. I love you. I love us all.
