Winter Park High's Feminist Club is hosting a fundraiser for a cause we believe is essential to women. Planned Parenthood is a non-profit organization and the most trusted provider of reproductive healthcare. They provide help and education to anyone struggling with thier health, pregnancies, sexual orientation, cancer, gender identity, STI's, and relationships. They are one of the most essential health care providers to not only women but people in need and have been facing the toughest challenges in healh care delivery. Any and all donations are apprecited and if you are unable to donate but are just as passionate about our cause as we are- please share this fundraiser! All proceeds will go to our local Central Florida Planned Parenthood.
"This year, my friends and I started a feminist club at my school. I am the Vice President of the club. We wanted our school to have a safe place for people to come and talk about equality. We also wanted our club to help give back to our community. We collected over $300 of food for a Thanksgiving drive that we donated to a local homeless shelter for women and children. We also collected over 3,000 ￼menstrual products that we donated to another local organization that helps women and children. We are now wanting to help Planned ￼ Parenthood. While I know many people don’t support them, they help thousands of women with healthcare. They do things like STD testing, giving women access to birth control, and provide basic healthcare services for women. They are a very important nonprofit organization but they have been hit very hard due to defunding. My club decided we wanted to help them. We are doing a match donation fundraiser. Our goal is to raise $500. If we raise $500 a few local companies have pledged to match that, which would leave us with a total of $2000 that we would donate to Planned Parenthood. This is something I’m very passionate about and I hope some of you feel the same. Any amount will help!" -Abby Lee, Vice President
