Be it gaslighting the public, being utterly tone-deaf or actually not caring, Melania Trump — by wearing her now infamous “I really don’t care, do u” Zara jacket on her way to a Texas migrant detention centre — certainly did inspire many an American to care.
First off, WildFang‘s I Really Care jacket — with all proceeds donated to RAICES, a non-profit organization providing free and low-cost legal services to immigrant children, families and refugees in Texas — sold out in an hour, proving that yep, people do care.

To say you’ve blown us all away is an understatement. When we decided to do this we thought we’d maybe sell a few jackets and raise a little money but now you’ve raised TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS for @raicestexas. Despite what Melania thinks, people really do care. pic.twitter.com/ihHvXcY2Pc

Go to familiesbelongtogether.org to learn more about how you can help in this humanitarian crisis happening right now in our country. And show up November 6. #endfamilyseparation #familiesbelongtogether

While Preservation Hall’s Ben displayed his message in pink.
But the support doesn’t just end at celebs and garments. There are cookies to be had too.
And there are crafty loving kids who want their voices heard.
And people who cared at Pride.
Even Canada cared at Toronto’s Roy Thomson Hall, during a talk with Amal Clooney.
So there you have it. The First Lady may not care, but a whole lot of other people do.
