One hug is all it takes to help raise awareness. Some of the biggest Latino and Latina names in entertainment have found the sweetest way to bring light to the immigration crisis. The #OneVidaAtATime Challenge was created on social media to foster empathy and raise funds for the Immigrant Families Together foundation.
The premise? It’s just starts with a hug. Participants share a photo of them embraced in a hug with their children, partner, friends or anyone else to show that there are children and adults who haven’t experienced an embrace since being separated from their families. So far, Zoe Saldana, Gina Rodriguez, Yalitza Aparicio and other celebrities have participated with some sweet photos.
