Meghan Markle Sends Her Support—and a Care Package—to Moms Demand Action, as They Fight for Gun Safety

Meghan Markle just supported a cause she holds close to her heart.

This week, the Duchess of Sussex, 40, sent a heartfelt letter and care package to Moms Demand Action, a movement advocating for safer gun laws. According to Hello! magazine, Markle supported the volunteers by giving them “donuts, bagels, coffee and cookies.”

The organization’s founder, Shannon Watts, documented the special gesture on Twitter, where she wrote: “.@MomsDemand volunteers and staff have been working around the clock for weeks, so it was moving to receive such a supportive note—and snacks!—from the Duchess of Sussex today.”

In the letter, Markle wrote, “Good afternoon ladies! To each of you and your fearless leader, Shannon, a huge thank you for the work you are doing to keep our kids, families and communities safe. Please know that while you may feel exhausted by your endless hours of dedication to this cause, I hope you feel energized in knowing that the work you’re doing is vital and so deeply appreciated.”

Markle concluded the note with a personal sign-off: “As a mom, as a friend, thank you so much! Meghan Markle, The Duchess of Sussex.”

According to the website, Moms Demand Action “is a grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that can protect people from gun violence.” It’s no secret that Markle is passionate about this cause after moving back to the U.S. (She even visited Texas after the tragic shooting in Uvalde.)

Thank you, Markle, for proving that a small gesture goes a long way.
