The title of this post refers to a hashtag on Twitter that is gaining momentum largely due to fans and admirers of HRH The Duchess of Sussex.

The former Meghan Markle - now a member of the British Royal Family - has been the recipient of racist and hate-filled posts on Twitter and Instagram largely fomented by newspaper and magazine writers who twist and embellish articles that cannot be described as authoritative or accurate.

But let's not focus on hatred.  March 31 is Mothering Sunday in the United Kingdom, which is an excellent day to have a global baby shower that celebrates the upcoming birth of a new member of the Royal Family.

Supporters of the Duchess of Sussex are tweeting and re-tweeting information on how to donate in honor of the soon-to-be new mother.

The most popular charities that are being supported are the charities that have the Duchess as Patron or charities that she has been involved with even before her marriage to the Duke of Sussex.

Here is a list of charities that one can make a donation to take part in the Global Baby Shower.

Campaign for Female Education.



One 25

Queen's Commonwealth Trust

Others are supporting local charities in the USA, Canada, the UK, Europe and elsewhere.

Another person suggested that people use Amazon Smile to purchase copies of Together: Our Community Cookbook and donate the books to local libraries.

Actions like this cannot completely erase or ameliorate the pain caused by the keyboards of reporters, feature writers and others who continue to fabricate or twist the true narrative.
