Miley Cyrus is mobilizing her Facebook followers to make donations for migrant children who have been separated from their families. 

The pop singer launched a fundraiser for KIND (Kids in Need of Defense) through the social network’s new feature allowing Pages (public figures and businesses) to lead campaigns directly. 

The Pages update is one of Facebook’s two new fundraising features; the other prompts users to establish recurring monthly contributions to nonprofits when using the “Donate” button.
