It’s the “Planned Parenthood, I am here for you!” tour!!

THE IDEA

I have this crazy notion that in this life I wanna be part of the solution. And when it comes to reproductive rights, throughout my life, I have had to turn to Planned Parenthood for many of my healthcare needs.

They were the only affordable solution. And they were always there for me.

 My life could have been very different without them.

I am grateful. Very grateful.

WHY DO YOU CARE?

Ask yourself: At some point in your life, was Planned Parenthood your only affordable option for healthcare. Was it for Mammograms? Pap smears? Birth Control? Or yes, did you have had to make the difficult decision to terminate a pregnancy?

If you have used Planned Parenthood for any services, I am asking you to join me in giving back.

I know it’s time I did something.

And I have a plan.

MY PLAN

Throughout 2010 and 2011, I have been selling out comedy shows throughout the country and now I want to bring these crowds in to shows that benefit Planned Parenthood.

This summer, I am driving from Minnesota to Brooklyn and want to do shows that raise as much money, for as many Planned Parenthood Chapters as I possibly can along the way.

In each city, I will provide an evening of laughter and inspiration, motivating folks to get active doing a comedy show full of material poking holes in the current state of our country, and sharing my personal story of how Planned Parenthood has played an important role in my life.

Through humor, I want to bring a much needed catharsis as we deal with this national assault on women’s reproductive health.

I am asking some of my talented friends to join me along the way. I want to create a cross-country excitement that shows America, “We are the face of Planned Parenthood,” and more importantly says,

“Thank You Planned Parenthood for being there for me, and together we will scream it from the top of our lungs,

“Planned Parenthood, I am here for you!”

YOUR DONATION

What we need is financial help and support to defray the overhead costs of the expenses that go into putting on the show in each city, so Planned Parenthood can put as much money as they can from the ticket sales into their coffers. 

I want you to be part of it!

Please help support this cause by clicking the DONATE button above.  Or even better, become a fundraiser with me!  Click JOIN THE TEAM and you'll have a page just like mine that you can send to your friends and family asking for their support.

Let's reach this goal together!
