It's my 32nd birthday! For the third year in a row, I'm using the opportunity of my birthday to help people who could use a little extra assistance. This year, I'm donating to Planned Parenthood. It would mean a whole lot if you would celebrate my birthday with me by joining me in donating to this extremely worthy organization.
I have some means and some success today not only because of hard work on my part, but also because of lucky accidents in terms of when and where and to whom I was born. Had things gone differently for me, I would not be in a position to offer help to those in need. Were I in a position to need help myself, I would hope that others would think, "There but for the grace of God go I," and give me a hand.
Planned Parenthood provides reproductive health resources to women and men all over the world. In the United States, one in five women will, at some point in their lives, receive services from Planned Parenthood. Given recent political events in the United States, it is vital that private individuals increase their support for organizations such as Planned Parenthood. That way, we as a society can ensure that all people, regardless of income or contingent life circumstances, have access to the health and medical reasources they need.
