WATCH: Twitter Throws Virtual Baby Shower to Donate to Charities in Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Honor
This sure outshines any material goods on a baby registry.
As the world gears up for the arrival of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's bundle of joy, one Tweet gave birth to something quite special in the couple's honor. Fans of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are urged to donate to charities near and dear to the Harry and Meghan's hearts, using the hashtag #GlobalSussexBabyShower.
Helmed by Twitter user Elle Harris, the founder of the campaign told Good Morning America, "I’m hoping that the amazing organizations supported and represented by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex get the exposure and resources they need to carry out their missions." The three charities highlighted in the initial tweet are Mayhew, an organization for helping animals, WellChild, which benefits seriously ill children (Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attended and participated in the WellChild Awards this past September), and Camfed, which seeks to educate women and girls in Africa.
"I’d want The Duke and Duchess to know that there are many people out there are inspired by their examples, who support them, and who are so happy for the impending addition to their family," Harris added of the campaign, which inspired many individuals to donate to the organizations.
Yesterday, Harris called out three more charities: Smart Works, which helps women returning to the workforce, the Invictus Games Foundation, which supports wounded military veterans, and One25, which helps women escape sex work and poverty.
