#OneVIDAAtATime aims to Keep Families Together

Sometimes it feels like the world is on fire and we’re literally just standing still trying not to get burned.

But, even in the darkest of times, there’s light.

It’s like that famous Mr. Rogers quote: “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”

TV writers are trying to help, and we have the One Day At A Time and Vida writers to thank for spearheading the effort.

Ir started here, with both writers rooms, which are made up predominantly of latinxs, challenging other writers rooms to donate to RAICES Family Reunification And Bond Fund, an organization which helps provide legal services for immigrant families that is now focused on helping reunite the families separated by this administration’s cruel policies.

And then, it snowballed, in a beautiful way:

Did your heart grow three sizes? Mine did. It’s good to see the people behind some of our favorite shows standing up for what’s right.

If you want to donate to RAICES Family Reunification And Bond Fund, you can do so on the link.
