According to CBS News, there are 12,800 children in detention centers across the United States as of September 2018 . That number increased from 2,400 children in May 2017 and it shows no signs of slowing down. That means that this year children will be spending their holidays in immigration centers.
US Immigration Bonds has decided to do something to bring joy to these children, because Santa doesn’t miss any chimneys. That’s why we have started the Holiday Without Borders, an immigration charity drive to bring joy by delivering toys for children in detention centers.
Here is a link to our GoFundMe page that details this initiative: https://www.gofundme.com/holidaywithoutborders
- Starts October 30
- Ends December 21
- Children are as young as 3 years old

You Can Send Post Cards & Messages
We encourage you to send notes of love and holiday cheer! You can send messages to children in detention centers by sending them to us at our offices. You can send them to our office here:
114 SW 10th St, Suite C Fort Lauderdale Fl. 33315.
We ask that you please ensure these cards are no bigger than a post card.
Rules for Gifts
We hope that others will see that this an immigration charity for children who need it most. These kids are not guilty of breaking laws and most are too young to fully understand why they are in this situation. Thankfully they have their families with them!
Rules for Gifts for children of immigrants in the detention centers:
- We are only accepting donations at this time because each detention center has its own rules and they are strict on the gifts we allowed to send.
- We are working with 2 detention centers; these gifts will be going to both boys and girls.
- We want to make sure that every child receives gifts that are fair, and that no one child is donated a toy that might cause problems in the detention center.
The idea came to us from the letters to Santa that children in detention center had written in years past. We decide that buying toys for children in detention centers is the least we can do. We want to bring a bit of hope, a bit of light a small amount of the holiday cheer to children who are stuck in detention centers in the U.S.A.
Our goal is to reach $20,000. Please donate what you can to brighten up the holidays for these kids and to send them toys that will make their entire holiday a little better.
