Couple raises more than $5m for families separated at US border as appeal goes viral

It started with the viral image of a crying two-year-old girl looking up at her mother as she is detained by American border agents. Charlotte and Dave Willner wanted to do something to help the families being locked up and separated as they crossed into the US. So they set up a fundraising page on Facebook. Their target was $1500 (£1100), the minimum bond payment for parents to leave detention and be reunited with their children.
