Meghan Markle showed her solidarity with US grassroots organization Moms Demand Action by sending them a whole bunch of snacks.
The Duchess of Sussex surprised the group campaigning for public safety measures to protect Americans from gun violence with a range of treats, including donuts, bagels, coffees, cookies and other snacks, according to Shannon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand Action who shared the details of Meghan’s thoughtful gift on Twitter.
“@MomsDemand volunteers and staff have been working around the clock for weeks, so it was heartwarming to receive such a note of support – and snacks! — from the Duchess of Sussex today,” Watts wrote, adding three red heart emojis. Watts was also so grateful for the gifts that she sent Meghan Markle the red t-shirt traditionally worn by Moms Demand Action organizers as a thank you, telling one of her Twitter followers that the uniform was already “on the way!”
Along with the refreshments, the Duchess also added a special note written on her letterhead which features her monogram with the crown of the heir apparent’s child. “Good morning ladies. To each of you and your fearless leader Shannon, a big thank you for the work you do to keep our children, our families and our communities safe,” the letter began. you feel drained from your endless hours of dedication to this cause, I hope you feel energized knowing that the work you do is vital and so deeply appreciated. As a mum and friend, thank you so much! Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex.
Gun control is a particularly big issue for the royal, especially as a mother of two young children. Last month, she and her husband Prince Harry traveled to Uvalde, Texas, the site of a mass shooting that left 21 people dead, including 19 children. During this visit, the Duchess is also said to have delivered two cases of food, drink and dessert for blood donors to the Herby Ham Activity Center in the town. She later also went to lay flowers at a makeshift memorial for the victims outside the Uvalde courthouse.
