‘The Kids Are All Right‘ actor Mark Ruffalo made a call for donations to aid campaign organized for the sake of children, who forced to return to schools amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Ruffalo, who recently reacted through social media channels to Donald Trump by saying that he is a liar, posted a photo of himself which sees him wearing a mask with “FEAR THE KIDS,” and informed his fans and followers about the fund drive organized by Seeding Sovereignty and BornxRaised in order to guard children against the novel coronavirus.
The actor wrote that a good number of kids have to go to school with limited protection against Covid-19; and they are at high risk in the midst of this global pandemic, because of a lack of proper PPE, healthcare, and running water and food. After telling of the current station, Ruffalo urged people to take any action to support the youth:
“The world depends on the youth to bring the radical change we so desperately need and to carry our traditions into the future. Young folks will become our leaders, refusing to let racism, homophobia, greed, and pollution govern our communities.”
Then the actor added that protecting kids against the “chronic systemic injustices and incompetence” is the responsibility of adults.
“Face the future, because, without these young folks, we get nothing. Get with protecting our most valuable, and most undeservedly vulnerable.”
Ruffalo, who is familiar with encouraging people to help people in need, later revealed how fans and followers can contribute to the campaign: He asked them to purchase a mask, as he wears in the photo, to donate Indigenous youth and Seeding Sovereignty.

Kids are in school with limited protection and COVID-19 cases continue to skyrocket across the United States. The children of 68 tribal nations were forced to return to school in person while in the midst of this global pandemic. Rates of infection are on the rise in overburdened Indigenous communities who lack proper PPE, healthcare, and even running water and food. Support direct action. The world depends on the youth to bring the radical change we so desperately need and to carry our traditions into the future. Young folks will become our leaders, refusing to let racism, homophobia, greed, and pollution govern our communities. Fear the kids, because they are the shift. They have power. Protecting them is our number one priority; they have the ability to change our country’s chronic systemic injustices and incompetence. Face the future, because, without these young folks, we get nothing. Get with protecting our most valuable, and most undeservedly vulnerable. I wear this mask on Lenape lands. Use the link in my bio to purchase a mask. When you buy this mask, you donate one to the Indigenous youth and the leftover dollars go to @SeedingSovereignty’s ongoing mutual aid work. These masks are a collaboration between @BornxRaised, @SuaySewShop, and Seeding Sovereignty. All masks made in the way they should be by Suay Sew Shop.
