I'm truly amazed. Since Texas Young Democrats started our Amazon Wish List of supplies for the refugee children, over $28,000 in gifts have been ordered. Wow! Thank you.
We're in contact with our Rio Grande Valley partners on the ground and have updated the list to reflect their most current requests.
Y'all have been outstanding! We've earned the support of national progressive leaders, YDs across Texas, and countless others who have personally stepped up to help in this crisis.
By young people, for young people, we will make a difference.
UPDATE: The total is now over $45,000! Thank you!
