Your monthly recurring giving to Together Rising helps to heal communities nationwide by offering support to help break cycles of poverty and violence. Through Together Rising, you recently invested $50,000 to fund @secondstoryorg ‘s Teen Center in Culmore, Virginia –which supports 7th – 12th graders at risk of gang violence and recruitment. ▫️ Your funds are providing life-giving services and necessities including meals, school supplies and tutoring, recreation and field trips, clothing and shoes, personal hygiene items, blankets, counseling, community service projects, and medical and dental care. On average, 95% of the high school seniors from the Teen Center are graduating – in many cases, these brave ones are the first in their families to graduate from high school. ▫️
THANK YOU for investing in the future by ensuring that hundreds of vulnerable kids know that they are safe, valued, and supported in reaching for their dreams. ▫️
These projects are made possible by our generous recurring donors who trust Together Rising with as little as $5 a month. If you’d like to join us to support the healing, uplifting work of Together Rising, please go to: https://togetherrising.org/give/ or the link in our profile ☝️.

Please meet Laura and her four daughters -- Kendall, Taylor, Emmaline & Ava. 
Two years ago this month, they lost their beloved husband and father, Chris, when he collapsed and died in their home. His daughters were the first by his side. 
Laura was a stay-at-home mom, and even with Chris working, money was tight. With him gone, no savings, and 4 kids age 3 to 10, Laura’s panic for her family’s future left her barely a moment to grieve her own loss. 
Laura’s warrior friend, Karen, heartbroken for Laura, wrote to Together Rising. 
Karen told us about what a warrior Laura is– that even through her unbearable grief, what Laura wanted most was to work to support her girls. Amid all of the sorrow and pressures on her, what Laura asked for was help paying for the courses she needed to get recertified for her teaching degree – so she could give her girls hope and a future. 
That’s where you, through Together Rising, stepped in. With $20,000, you paid for Laura’s last two course requirements and 18 months of the family’s rent so she could complete her courses. 
We just heard from Laura that she successfully renewed her teaching license, is working a long-term substitute position, and is awaiting word on a full time teaching position at her girls’ school! 
Laura wrote you this: “I just can't thank you all enough for helping my girls and me get back on our feet and into a position where I can support our family. You are helping to give us a beautiful future and for that we are beyond thankful! I wasn't sure how I'd get through the day, let alone 2 years. But I knew I had to keep moving forward as healthfully as I could for our girls. All those small, tiny (what seemed to be insignificant) steps added up to such a great distance. Together Rising allowed me the time I needed to get myself and my girls together, to get us to a place where we can begin again and for that I am forever grateful. I have adopted your philosophy, "We CAN do hard things" and I use it in the classroom every day!!” ▫️
Thank you for trusting Together Rising with your monthly donations (link in bio ☝🏼). We can do hard things – like heal and sister the world a little at a time.

Thousands of families, women, children and men, who have walked hundreds of miles fleeing in-country violence and persecution, are now at the southern border of the U.S. prepared to do the difficult work of presenting their petitions for legal asylum. 
The shelters in Tijuana are overflowing, rain has caused much of the area to be completely flooded, destroying what little is left of the families’ possessions. Families who have walked hundreds of miles are in desperate need of accommodations, warm clothing, food, water and hygiene supplies. It is unclear when the massive delays in reviewing asylum applications will be addressed – so the squalid conditions persist. 
Last week, after U.S. Border officials fired tear gas across the border, many migrants – including children -- were in urgent need of medical aid. Through @together.rising, you provided $25,000 in emergency medical support and food for families waiting to make their asylum petitions. 
You are giving this medical help and food through Border Angels – a group assisting with food, shelter and medicine. They also form human chains around migrant families sleeping in the streets to protect them from violent anti-immigration protestors – so the families (who have been walking for weeks) can allow their children to rest without violence. @borderangelsofficial is stepping in to protect the most vulnerable – and you are stepping up to make their work possible. Thank you. (Please see first comment for important historical context regarding asylum.) Love,

Hi All! Meet Audrey. Audrey’s neighbors call her “the mayor of Minneapolis” because she is constantly serving mamas and children. This is from her friend, Jessica.
▫️
“Each year, in between acting as a year-round clearing house for clothes and kids’ items, Audrey singlehandedly organizes a love-yourself-first Valentines’ day celebration, a school supplies drive, a toiletry drive for homeless neighbors, and a year-end housewarming drive for folks leaving shelters. She does this while she works and parents full-time, teaches bible-study classes, and attends classes for a University of Northwestern divinity degree. And although she is kind and gracious to all she meets, her love is especially fierce for single mamas. She knows that road because she walks it. But this year, she needs our help. Audrey’s 15-year-old son Isaiah has been an amputee since birth, and now after many attempts to correct it, his other foot must also be amputated. We’re hoping that Together Rising can give her and Isiah the cushion they need to take a deep breath, hold each other, and move forward. “
▫️
You stepped in — through your monthly recurring donations to Together Rising —and provided the funds that Audrey needed to make her baby’s transition back home after surgery comfortable. You helped install a ramp he needed and you helped pay for a special bed for Isaiah (it was important to Audrey that he did not spend his recovery in a hospital bed).
▫️
Most importantly, you made sure that Audrey feels the LOVE that she pours into the world flowing back to her and Isaiah. You made her feel seen - and held. ▫️

Together Rising exists to turn our collective heartbreak into effective action.

We are only able to do this because of TEAM LOVE: a group of people that give monthly to Together Rising so that we have the resources to respond in real time when crises hit. 
EVERY TAX-DEDUCTIBLE PENNY WE RECEIVE FROM TEAM LOVE goes directly to serve hurting people.

Because of TEAM LOVE, we are able to be first responders: providing food, shelter, clothing, medicine - whatever is most needed to whomever most needs it - immediately.

For example, since Sunday's tear gas attacks, we have been working around the clock with boots on the ground organizations to fund critical needs for emergency medical support and food for families seeking asylum -- and we will update you soon on the deployments of those life-saving funds.

The commitment of TEAM LOVE has translated to the healing of lives, families, and communities all over this country and the world. This monthly partnership with givers is what enables Together Rising to do good throughout the year, providing daily grants for urgent and vital needs across the states and the globe.

Today, #GivingTuesday, please join TEAM LOVE by making a tax-deductible monthly recurring gift of any amount - $5, $15, $25: https://togetherrising.org/give or the link in bio ☝🏼 ——————————————————
➖We live in a world where people believe that We Belong To Each Other. ➖We live in a world where people give away hard-earned money to strangers. ➖We live in a world where Love Wins. And we have proof. Right here.

Love continues to win, because TEAM LOVE continues to show up. 
Thank you!

As we celebrate today, let us take time to appreciate and share the truth. 
While this holiday purports to mark friendship among Indigenous peoples and Pilgrims in 1621, the truth is that the first settlers and the U.S. government’s forced removals; theft of ancestral lands; biological warfare (intentionally distributing blankets contaminated with smallpox); and massacres amounted to genocide: Between Columbus’s arrival to 400 years later, the Indigenous population in North America plummeted from up to 15 Million to fewer than 238,000. 
The truth is that the Oglala Lakota peoples living on The Pine Ridge Reservation--the 8th-largest reservation in the US, larger than Delaware & Rhode Island combined--struggle to survive every winter.  Temperatures drop to 40 degrees below zero. Heat comes from wood stoves. They do not have enough firewood. Kids have reported suicide attempts as an effort to end the struggle against the cold. 
The average income is $9,150. 80% of residents are unemployed. 90% live below the federal poverty line. Pervasive poverty forces an impossible choice: whether to keep their children warm, or keep their children fed. 
Today, through @together.rising Rising, you gave $400,000 to One Spirit, a non-profit primarily run by Indigenous people – to keep those on the Reservation warm this year, and to cover all fixed costs of heat for next year. Your money will fund all wood, and employment of Indigenous men & women who will cut, split & distribute the wood for the community, as well as a storage facility to maintain & protect wood reserves. 
Your funds will establish & fully stock 3 new Food Centers -managed and staffed by Indigenous people. Your funds are also going to sustainability and self-sufficiency– the growth of traditional food directly on the Reservation, and developing the capacity of the buffalo herd to feed, and become an economic engine, for the people. 
As we enjoy the warmth and food of our tables today, we remember and mourn the truth, we honor the relentless resolve of Indigenous peoples, and we thank you for supporting Together Rising.
Every penny we receive through the weekend will go to this effort. Link in bio.

Hi All. This is Desmond. He’s nine. He’s in treatment for Leukemia, and his doctors believe that one of the reasons he’s doing so well is because he’s so physically active. His mama, Melinda, wrote to us and told us that her baby’s dream is a particular mountain bike he’s seen in a fancy outdoor store. Cancer is expensive, though. Melinda doesn’t have money for bikes.

You do, though!! You bought Desmond the exact, particular fancy bike of his dreams -- because Love Is Particular. And you threw in a little extra treat: a gift card for Desmond to pick out the coolest helmet he could find- because Love is Extra.

We Belong to Each Other.

Tuesday, through our Holiday Hands program, you met the needs of 500 families in less than 3 hours.

You are unbelieveable. We at Together Rising are overwhelmed, filled up, exhausted, and mostly – grateful.

Grateful for the courage of the askers and grateful for the character of the givers. Grateful that we are able to create the world we live in. Grateful that you showed up and created a more beautiful world.

Isn’t it wild? We spend so much time looking at the world with our hearts broken- wishing it were different. Wishing people cared for each other. Wishing people would be kinder, live bigger, think beyond themselves.

And then one day we find ourselves jumping in and MAKING IT SO. 500 families will go to bed tonight in a kinder, bigger, smaller, better world than the one they woke up on Tuesday.

THANK YOU!!!! Here are some of the families you showed up for!! (Read our full post at the link in our bio ☝️.)

1) If you missed Holiday Hands and still want to help families over the holidays, you can give a one-time or monthly tax-deductible donation to Together Rising by going to togetherrising.org/give/ We continue receiving & filling requests for holiday needs through mid-December — and we fill the needs of families all year long. 
2) If you cannot give financially, but want to give holiday love, we have a section of listings asking for thoughts /letters /encouragement / prayers – so please head over to the “Together Letters” section at togetherrising.org/holidayhands to connect with a family there.
3) Your trust in Together Rising is everything to us. We honor our commitment to this community by researching every Holiday Hands request, as well as each need we meet in our daily and holiday giving. We are unable review requests made directly on social media, so instead of matching giving to requests on our social media pages, we ask that if you missed the opportunity to list your need in Holiday Hands, please go to togetherrising.org/request-help and tell us about your need.
4) If you participated in Holiday Hands as a Lister or Giver: THANK YOU!!!! Please Swipe Left XOXO

In this world that is so divided, we have proof that love is still louder—that we still belong to each other. HOLIDAY HANDS UPDATE! YOU DID IT!!! Today, through our Holiday Hands program, you met the needs of 500 families in less than 3 hours. You are unbelieveable. We at Together Rising are overwhelmed, filled up, exhausted, and mostly – grateful. Grateful for the courage of the askers and grateful for the character of the givers. Grateful that we are able to create the world we live in. Grateful that today, you showed up and created a more beautiful world. Isn’t it wild We spend so much time looking at the world with our hearts broken- wishing it were different. Wishing people cared for each other. Wishing people would be kinder, live bigger, think beyond themselves. And then one day we find ourselves jumping in and MAKING IT SO. These 500 families will go to bed tonight in a kinder, bigger, smaller, better world than the one they woke up in today THANK YOU!
