[USA], June 15 (ANI): Chrissy Teigen and John Legend donated USD 288,000 to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) on the occasion of US President Donald Trump's 72nd birthday.

The model and TV host took to Twitter to share that they chose to donate to the non-profit organisation based on their work and values.

"John and I are outraged to see and hear the horror stories of immigrant families seeking asylum and refuge in America being ripped apart due to the inhumane policies of the Trump administration. These actions are cruel, anti-family and go against everything we believe this country should represent," she wrote.

"The ACLU is committed to defending the rights and humanity of these vulnerable families. In addition to fighting for immigrants' rights, they're advocating for reproductive rights, voting rights, criminal justice reform, LGBT rights, 1st amendment rights and holding the Trump administration accountable whenever possible."

"On this auspicious occasion, in order to Make Trump's Birthday Great Again, each member of our family has donated $72,000 to the ACLU," added Teigen.

The 32-year-old also encouraged others to donate to the ACLU "in honor of this blessed day."

The US President turned 72 on June 14. (ANI)
