Katy Perry donated $10.000 to Planned Parenthood and Pens Motivational essay.
On Friday, on Instagram, Katy Perry shared that she made a donation to Planned Parenthood. She is worried that the future government may take away the funding support for the organizations. So to ensure their functionality in the future the singer supports them with her donations.
It’s time to turn words into action❗️There are so many steps to take, but my first vow is to support organizations that may have their funding support taken from them in the future by the government. I am making a public donation to Planned Parenthood for the teenage me who made several visits to first a clinic in Santa Barbara and then Los Angeles, CA to educate myself on my sexual health, a subject I had little to no information on because of my sheltered upbringing. I had no idea how things worked down there, and had no idea how to make a plan for them. Planned Parenthood educated me on my body and my reproductive health, so that I could focus on my dreams and using my voice until I knew the timing was right for me to make a plan to have a family. Since then, I have been able to focus wholeheartedly on bringing messages of strength and becoming a voice for others. Without this education, I may have had a different life path. That is just my experience, but I know Planned Parenthood’s broader range of services can sometimes be the only medical support low-income families ever see. I know what it’s like to need help. I came from a lower- to middle-class family and never grew up with the option of health insurance. I remember having 13 cavities as a teenager, and the best option my parents could come up with was to try and take me to Mexico because we couldn’t afford anything in California. I am grateful for and stand in support of Planned Parenthood for giving Katheryn Hudson the knowledge to plan, and for continuing to be a haven for women to learn all options for their future. Now, more than ever, we all need to protect and create safe places for each other. I hope I can help inspire you to make a gift as well, and become a member and an ally.

Katy dedicated the donation to her teenage self, because in her teenage years, she had to visit the clinics in order to educate herself about sexual health.
Coming form a lower to middle class family, the 32 year old singer didn’t have even health insurance while she was growing up. When she was a teenager, her parents took her to Mexico for a dental exam, because it was cheaper than in California.
The gained knowledge helped Katy become who she is now. Her educating herself helped her focus on her dreams of building a career in the music industry, until she knew she was ready to plan a family.
She is pleased to support Planned Parenthood, because it helps woman learn all options for their future, and gives them knowledge to plan their life properly.
According to Katy, now is the time to protect and create safe places for each other. And hopefully to inspire more people to make a gift as well and become a member and an ally.
