Now you just have one more reason to love the CBS show Mom. Lead actresses Anna Faris and Allison Janney are showing their Planned Parenthood solidarity by starting a new campaign. The fundraising effort, which Mom producer Chuck Lorre is also lending a hand with, will help the women’s health organization. As you probably know, Planned Parenthood is currently going through some tough times.

Lorre and Janney announced plans to give up the budget for Mom‘s Emmy FYC (“for your consideration”) package on CBS This Morning. Instead, they’ll be donating $250,000 directly to the organization. We wish we could award them an Emmy for that move alone, to be honest.

Donations from the community help the non-profit organization operate at a low cost to the community. These days, Planned Parenthood is continuously threatened to be defunded. If it happened, it would be a big blow to women’s health.

Janney was actually wearing a Planned Parenthood t-shirt when announcing the grand plan:

In order to inspire others, the Mom crew has their own URL (ppaction.org/MOMsupport) for fans to make donations, if they choose. We’re so proud of the cast and crew for taking action.
