This is incredible!
Hopefully, other shows follow Mom‘s lead on this! The Anna Faris and Allison Janney starring show on CBS is doing something incredible this year.
Instead of spending $250,000 on a typical ‘For Your Consideration’ Emmys campaign, Mom and CBS will be donating that lump sum of money directly to Planned Parenthood.
Such an important gesture in times like these! Series creator Chuck Lorre and Allison Janney made the announcement today and it should come as no surprise to fans of the actress. She has been a long time supporter of the world PP does.
Sun Dunlap, the Planned Parenthood President/CEO explained:
“In Los Angeles County alone, we answer approximately 2,000 calls each day from people asking us for help. Across the country, millions of women and men are relying on Planned Parenthood health centers for their basic care — like birth control, life-saving cancer-screenings, and STD testing and treatment.
We are committed to being here for them, no matter what. Generous support from our community fuels this work, and we are honored that the team behind Mom is launching this campaign at this critical time.”
They also released a non-traditional ‘For Your Consideration’ poster to commemorate the announcement.
If you want to donate along with the show, you can do so on the Planned Parenthood website.
