Happy Weekend || Fave Links

It’s felt like a really heavy week with everything going on in the world, but particularly with what’s going on at the border in our own backyard.  I did discover something this week, though, that perhaps you have already known for a long time and it’s this: Doing something about a problem feels increasingly better than not doing something about a problem.  Even if it’s a small something.  On Wednesday, Parker and some of her buddies here in Austin hosted a bake sale to help raise money for RAICES, an organization of immigration attorneys based here in Austin that helping to reunite kids with their families at the border.  They raised $700!  People were so generous.  Hank’s, a restaurant here in Austin, donated dozens and dozens of the most delicious baked goods and people were even making Venmo donations remotely.  If you were one of the people who stopped by, thank you so much for paving the way for the conversations we were able to have with them about where the money was going and the importance of sticking up for people who can’t stick up for themselves.  I also found that looking for small acts of goodness in the world goes far to restoring your faith in humanity– a dad kissing his daughter’s head, a stranger who holds the door open, a driver who waves thank you.  Look for the good this weekend. I promise it’s out there.  And on that note, what’s the “goodest” thing you’ve witnessed lately?
