Glendale family starts campaign for children in Nogales warehouse

In this Monday, Sept. 19, 2016, photo, Susan Martin displays some of the literature she has on how to flip homes, in her Chico, Calif., home. Martin attended a seminar sponsored by Zurixx LLC, a Utah-based education company, expecting to see reality TV stars Andy and Candis Meredith of "Old Home Love," a show that aired on HGTV and its sister channel the DIY Network. Martin and others say they attend the events to learn about flipping homes from reality stars like the Meredith's or Tarek and Christina El Moussa, of HGTV's "Flip or Flop," only to find that the stars don't appear and they are asked to spend thousands of dollars to attend more classes.

The leaked images of migrant children in a Nogales warehouse have a Glendale family taking action.

Glendale resident Karyn Ogle has created a crowdsourcing effort called “H20 and toys for the Children of Nogales” through the site GoFundMe to raise money for these children.

Being a proud mom of a 5-year-old boy, Ogle said she couldn’t imagine sending her own son out to those conditions.

“They don’t have anybody. They don’t have a parent to comfort them. They barely have water,” she said.

Ogle is taking any kind of donation from money to water, toys, stuffed animals, water and food.

They have been able to raise approximately $1,200 and further hope to raise enough money to provide clothing and essentials such as toothpaste.

She is also working on the possibility of her bringing in the donations to the facility personally.

“I’m putting politics aside and being a bigger person … if this was my child, I would want someone to do this for my child,” she said.
