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.

PSA Supply Co., a commerce site recently launched by our parent company, GOOD Worldwide Inc., has followed Parker's lead by turning her re-design of Melania Trump's jacket into a T-shirt that you can purchase here. 100% of the profits will go directly toward United We Dream, the largest youth-led immigrant network in the United States.

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.

From the time she was a little girl, Abby Recker loved helping people. Her parents kept her stocked up with first-aid supplies so she could spend hours playing with her dolls, making up stories of ballet injuries and carefully wrapping “broken” arms and legs.

Recker fondly describes her hometown of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, as a simple place where people are kind to one another. There’s even a term for it—“Iowa nice”—describing an overall sense of agreeableness and emotional trust shown by people who are otherwise strangers.

Driven by passion and the encouragement of her parents, Recker attended nursing school, graduating just one year before the unthinkable happened: a global pandemic. One year into her career as an emergency and labor and delivery nurse, everything she thought she knew about the medical field got turned upside down. That period of time was tough on everyone, and Nurse Recker was no exception.

The Emperor of the Seas.

Imagine retiring early and spending the rest of your life on a cruise ship visiting exotic locations, meeting interesting people and eating delectable food. It sounds fantastic, but surely it’s a billionaire’s fantasy, right?

Not according to Angelyn Burk, 53, and her husband Richard. They’re living their best life hopping from ship to ship for around $44 a night each. The Burks have called cruise ships their home since May 2021 and have no plans to go back to their lives as landlubbers. Angelyn took her first cruise in 1992 and it changed her goals in life forever.

“Our original plan was to stay in different countries for a month at a time and eventually retire to cruise ships as we got older,” Angelyn told 7 News. But a few years back, Angelyn crunched the numbers and realized they could start much sooner than expected.

It takes a special type of person to become a nurse. The job requires a combination of energy, empathy, clear mind, oftentimes a strong stomach, and a cheerful attitude. And while people typically think of nursing in a clinical setting, some nurses are driven to work with the people that feel forgotten by society.

We're dancing along too.

Art can be a powerful unifier. With just the right lyric, image or word, great art can soften those hard lines that divide us, helping us to remember the immense value of human connection and compassion.

This is certainly the case with “Pasoori,” a Pakistani pop song that has not only become an international hit, it’s managed to bring the long divided peoples of India and Pakistan together in the name of love. Or at least in the name of good music.

A couple enjoying a glass of wine.

In the 1988 Disney classic “Who Framed Roger Rabbit,” the titular character is in an unlikely relationship with his voluptuous wife Jessica. Roger is a frantic, anxious rabbit with a penchant for mischief, while Jessica is a quintessential ’40s bombshell who stands about a foot and a half taller and isn’t “bad,” just “drawn that way.”

When private investigator Eddie Valiant asked Jessica what she sees in “that guy?” she replies, “He makes me laugh.”

This type of couple may seem like something we only see in the movies, but don’t underestimate the power of humor when it comes to attractiveness. A new study published in Evolutionary Psychology found that being humorous is the most effective way to flirt for both men and women.
