@ayeshacurry and I are collaborating with Lin-Manuel Miranda to raise money for a coalition of immigration organizations. We all feel strongly about supporting these important organizations fighting to protect immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers who want to make a better life for themselves and their families. The grand prize winner will join us and Lin-Manuel at the LA opening on August 16th. We think that this will be the biggest Hamilton sweepstakes yet, but we need your help… Head over to prizeo.com/Hamilton for more details. #ham4all #thatgirlgood
Steph and Ayesha Curry are joining in an effort called #Ham4all, a viral campaign to encourage donations to the Immigrants: We Get the Job Done Coalition — an immigrants’ rights advocacy effort by the Hispanic Federation. The name for the effort, which represents a dozen partner organizations that work on the ground around the country conducting education campaigns and providing legal representation, was inspired by the now famous line from Hamilton, “Immigrants: we get the job done,” sung by the Marquis de Lafayette and Alexander Hamilton, who himself was an immigrant from the Caribbean.
The video campaign, in which the Currys were joined by Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, is an Ice Bucket Challenge-style deal where celebrities and others are announcing their own donations to the coalition, and challenging friends to donate, as well as sing their favorite song from Hamilton.
“We all feel strongly about supporting these important organizations fighting to protect immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers who want to make a better life for themselves and their families,” says Steph in his Instagram post.
