If you are interested in supporting unaccompanied and separated children seeking asylum in the United States, these are a few of the organizations and people that the creative team behind Tender Age have donated to:
Kids in Need of Defense (KIND) is devoted to protecting unaccompanied and separated children in the US with legal help, medical and mental health care, and crisis intervention. It partners with organizations on the ground in Central America to help address root causes of migration, protect children during migration, and connect repatriated children to essential services.
RAICES works along the US-Mexico border in Texas, providing free or low-cost legal resources to low-income children and families in detention and advocating for policies that protect due process for undocumented people.
Project Corazon was created to reunite families separated under former President Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy. The organization has partnered with law firms and attorneys to assist immigrants and their families by providing free legal aid. There is also an option to donate airline miles or credit card points to help lawyers travel to clients at the border, detention centers, or to any areas where assistance is needed.
Las Patronas are a group of women in Veracruz, Mexico, who give food and water to people riding La Bestia, a series of freight trains that stretch over the 1,450-mile journey many migrants ride from Southern Mexico to the US border; you can donate goods or money through PayPal to Las Patronas through their website.
