In 10 days, we will be swearing in Donald Trump as our next president (gag). A large group of celebrities are having a telethon that day to raise money for many charities such as Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and others. They are calling it the “Love-a-Thon.”
If you want to help, here are some charities that you can donate to. We will be on the right side of history.
This organization really needs our help. Republicans have been trying to attack and shut down Planned Parenthood. Many states have been trying to shut down and defund clinics that provide much-needed care for women.
