According to an exclusive from Refinery29, Sheryl Sandberg recently donated $1 million to Planned Parenthood. Like, whoa. How amazing is that?! What makes Sheryl Sandberg’s Planned Parenthood donation such a big deal is that Paul Ryan and the Republican party have promised to entirely defund Planned Parenthood, which would be hugely devastating for many people who rely on it for so many crucial health services.
Since going to Planned Parenthood is how many people get necessary healthcare, it’s so important that they continue to get donations that allow them to carry out their important work.
We’re so relieved when people like Sheryl Sandberg do the incredibly important work of making sure these resources stay alive!
Honestly, all we can say is TG for this awesome woman.
In a Facebook post, Sheryl Sandberg explained why she donated $1 million to Planned Parenthood, writing,
Just, like, yes. We’re so thrilled about this, and we hope people continue to donate to Planned Parenthood. We don’t want to live in a world without it, and we know we’re not the only ones.
