#FamiliesBelongTogether: More ways to help, everywhere you live

If this issue makes your heart hurt there is something you can do about it, from anywhere you live. Humane treatment of children is a planetary issue.

If you live in the US…

  • Attend a Families Belong Together march on June 30th. March alongside organizations like V-Day, One Billion Rising, and the ACLU—here’s a directory of events across the country.
  • Call your local representative. Use your voice. Here’s a guide to help you find your rep’s number and prep for the call.
  • Text “RESIST” to 50409, and the Resist.Bot app will help you write your government representatives.

If you live in Canada…

  • Sign this petition started by Women’s March Canada.
  • We can contact our MPs, too. This post has directions, and many people have shared scripts in the comments.

Wherever you live…

  • If you want to give more, here’s an exhaustive list of places to donate.
  • PRAY. MEDITATE. Ask the Higher Beings you resonate with to bring solutions to the situation. Pray for grace, for sanity, for morality, for protection of the innocents involved. Visualize children being in the arms of their parents. Stream light from your heart to the hearts of… everyone. We are divided on morality, but we are all in this together.

Power to the peaceful,
Danielle + Team D

 

Heartache → Action: You donate to reunite separated border families, and this is what we’ll give you… (time sensitive)

DanielleLaporte.Donation.ReuniteDetainedImmigrantChildren.June19-24_.EmailHeader

2000 kids detained in six weeks—an average of 47 children being taken from their families per day. Many came seeking asylum from violence in their home country. Today, they’re sleeping in chain link pens with mylar emergency sheets as blankets. Reports of “no hug” policies that keep siblings from comforting each other. Babies crying inconsolably. 

We are being called to fathom the unfathomable. And ACT.

So many mornings, I read the newsfeed in my kitchen, crying. This barbarism is so appalling that I have to re-commit to not numbing out and to jumping in with all I can bring to the table. Please be with me on this. Feel the pain, the rage, and ENGAGE. If we don’t fight for children, all is lost.

Please help us raise money to reunify these children with their families. Together Rising is collecting funds and sending every penny to vetted organizations across the country working tirelessly to get these kids back to the people that love them.

So, when you donate to Together Rising this week, this is what we’ll give you…


THE HOW TO’s + SPECIFICS

1. Make a donation to Together Rising between June 19, 2018 and June 24, 2018.

Email your receipt as proof of donation to: redeem@daniellelaporte.com by 11:59pm PT, June 24. Questions? Please use that same email, we are here for you.

NOTE TO CANADIAN RESIDENTS: With respect to currency exchange rates… if you are based in Canada we will accept $700 USD donations for the Desire Map Facilitator Program, and $200 USD donations for our Fire Starter Sessions Facilitator Program.

Sweet like honey, and sledgehammer-hard: lessons from my year.

Sweet Friends,

After one more trip around the sun, here are a few of my learnings (some of which came down like honey, others, like a sledgehammer. #reallife):

Devote—all in, no half-assing commitment to the Light. Do it for the Love. Hold your friends close. If you can’t find the funny in it, yer fucked. Laughter fuels resiliency—if you can crack a joke in tragedy, you’re going to be alright.

Trying to be cool delays satisfaction. Get excited. Show it. You might get hurt. Find something or someone else to get excited about. The supply of excitement worthiness is unlimited.

Your body is never “attacking itself”. That’s one of the most damaging myths of modern medicine.

Presence is where the payoff is, just be with what’s going on in front of you. The next right step comes from that place.

Being misunderstood will not kill you. You know who you are.

Not many people will run into a burning building for you. As for the ones who will—never let them go.

LEAD.

Compassion can be excruciating—it’s the medicine. Listening is an underrated hobby. Be INTERESTED. And please, just meditate, k?

If you chase only the numbers, you miss the gold. Burn it down when it’s holding you back—there is magic in the ashes. Only the flexible survive.

Love is the most inefficient and often inconvenient way to EUPHORIA. But… EUPHORIA. I’m so in. If you orient your whole life around doing THE MOST LOVING THING… you get strong, stronger, fucking strongest. So strong. Love-strong.

 

Thank you to everyone who poured light into my life this year. As for my personal new year, I’m going for all passion-making and minimal on the awesomely gnarly life lessons. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Only Love,
Danielle LaPorte
