Play for Planned Parenthood: A 24 Hour Gaming Marathon

Planned Parenthood is one of my favorite non-profit organizations. It the world’s largest single provider of reproductive health services and serves millions of people by providing free and inexpensive birth control, cancer screenings, and STD tests. As a young low-income woman, Planned Parenthood has provided me with these important health services for years and I want to give back, but I can’t do it alone!

That’s why both Becca and I are participating in an amazing fundraising event called Play for Planned Parenthood! This event pairs our favorite thing in the world: gaming, with raising funds for Planned Parenthood! We will be marathoning video games and streaming. All proceeds go directly to Planned Parenthood.
