Melania's jacket prompts thousands to declare 'I really do care' about separated families.

On Thursday, June 21, Melania Trump's "I Really Don't Care. Do U?" jacket sent shockwaves across social media.

As she was boarding a plane following a surprise visit to a U.S.-Mexico border facility, the first lady was photographed wearing a jacket that read "I Really Don't Care. Do U?"

People were understandably upset. The stories surrounding families separated after attempting to cross the border has broken hearts and sparked outrage.

More importantly, hundreds of thousands of people have been inspired to take direct action to help reunite families.

Upworthy writer Parker Molloy came up with an ingenious response by acquiring the domain rights to ireallydocare.com ("I Really Do Care") where people can make streamlined donations to a number of organizations working on immigration issues.

Just two hours into the campaign, more than $100,000 had been donated through the site.

At a time when people were feeling outraged, it's another perfect example of leading people who do care toward meaningful action and having your voice heard.

If you want your voice heard, sometimes you have to wear your values on your back. Literally.

We can't always stop bad things from happening, but how we respond says so much more. Here's your chance to be heard.

At a time when so many people are still trying to process what is happening with immigrant families separated at the border, it's OK to be outraged. It's OK to be heartbroken. But what we choose to do next matters.

Supporting groups that are fighting to protect immigrant families will send a message to those in power that dignity, justice, and human rights are universal values worth fighting for.

True

When a pet is admitted to a shelter it can be a traumatizing experience. Many are afraid of their new surroundings and are far from comfortable showing off their unique personalities. The problem is that's when many of them have their photos taken to appear in online searches.

Chewy, the pet retailer who has dedicated themselves to supporting shelters and rescues throughout the country, recognized the important work of a couple in Tampa, FL who have been taking professional photos of shelter pets to help get them adopted.

"If it's a photo of a scared animal, most people, subconsciously or even consciously, are going to skip over it," pet photographer Adam Goldberg says. "They can't visualize that dog in their home."

Adam realized the importance of quality shelter photos while working as a social media specialist for the Humane Society of Broward County in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

"The photos were taken top-down so you couldn't see the size of the pet, and the flash would create these red eyes," he recalls. "Sometimes [volunteers] would shoot the photos through the chain-link fences."

That's why Adam and his wife, Mary, have spent much of their free time over the past five years photographing over 1,200 shelter animals to show off their unique personalities to potential adoptive families. The Goldbergs' wonderful work was recently profiled by Chewy in the video above entitled, "A Day in the Life of a Shelter Pet Photographer."
