BENEFITING: Planned Parenthood Global Inc
Caroline Adelman and I have made handmade jewelry to help raise funds for non-profits we stand behind. As a special thank you to those who choose to donate to organizations that support and sustain the most vulnerable among us, we will send hand-made gifts to individuals who donate $50-$100 to Planned Parenthood on January 20th.
Planned Parenthood, is a nonprofit organization that provides reproductive health services both in the United States and globally. PPFA has its roots in Brooklyn, New York, where Margaret Sanger opened the first birth control clinic in the U.S. in 1916. Sanger founded the American Birth Control League in 1921, which changed its name to Planned Parenthood in 1942.
Planned Parenthood consists of 159 medical and non-medical affiliates, which operate over 650 health clinics in the U.S. It partners with organizations in 12 countries globally. The organization directly provides a variety of reproductive health services and sexual education, contributes to research in reproductive technology, and performs advocacy work aimed at protecting and expanding reproductive rights.
