Shop These Brands to Support Planned Parenthood + the ACLU
With the recent travel ban (though it is currently on hold) and women continuing to fight an uphill battle, a lot of folks have been wondering what they can do to make an impact. Thankfully, even if you can’t go to protests or marches in person, there are other ways to pitch in. Planned Parenthood and the ACLU have had donations pouring in from people who want to help — and you can even show your support by stocking your closet. Check out these brands that are donating their proceeds to organizations like PP and ACLU.
