Sometimes, social media can be good.
Woman-in-demand and mother-to-be Meghan Markle has made headlines again this weekend, but not for the online trolling she's become accustomed to since her relationship with Prince Harry was made public back in November 2016.
Instead, a hashtag has been created in her honour – giving fans and philanthropic followers the chance to pay it forward in the form of a charitable baby shower gift.
The concept of the hashtag is as follows: using #GlobalBabySussexShower, fans and well-wishers can make a donation to charity in the name of the next little royal. The campaign initially kicked off with three charities: the Campaign for Female Education (CAMFED), WellChild in England, and Mayhew, an animal welfare organisation.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have supported these organisations in the past.
"Proof that social media can be a positive place," royal commentator Omid Scobie tweeted.
"Charities including @themayhew @Camfed and @WellChild have been receiving donations from Duchess Meghan fans around the world who started the hashtag #GlobalSussexBabyShower to celebrate Baby Sussex’s impending arrival. Very cool."

For those looking to make a monetary donation and join the truly global movement, you can do so at CAMFED, WellChild, and Mayhew’s own websites.
Be sure to use the #GlobalBabySussexShower to connect internationally with people who are doing the same.
