Hear our voice Fund women's health
Again, I reach out to all of the people that have donated, the people that have followed and support this story, and the people who support Planned Parenthood and invite you to Planned Parenthood in Glenwood Springs this coming Monday at 11 o'clock to witness the check exchange. If you cannot make it, you can celebrate no matter where you are because this is a community worth celebrating. Please be aware that the check exchange will be held outside, and that the clinic will be open as it normally would to its patients. It is very important that everyone who attends this event remain outside of the clinic so that patient privacy can still be maintained.
It is all of you that have made this all possible. Please help me Get the word out to other members of the community. Anyone who can not go online to donate, but still wants to, can go into any Wells Fargo branch and donate to the hear our voice fund for woman's health .
If you think that you will be attending the event on Monday, please send me a message through my GoFundMe campaign site and thank you again for being a part of something so beautiful!
Kudos to Ashley Johnson and the many inspired activists of our beloved Roaring Fork Valley! Thank you to all who have contributed to this grassroots rally for our local Planned Parenthood! When I was a single mom putting myself through school (and holding down three waitressing jobs to provide for my kids) Planned Parenthood provided me with annual exams and education (about birth control options, STD's, etc.) ~ as well as referrals to other local organizations that provided me with the support I needed during a challenging time in my life. The dedicated health care professionals at Planned Parenthood always treated me with dignity and respect ~ and never made me feel "less-than" because of my low-income status. I am grateful I had access to their affordable, compassionate women's health services... (~.~) Together, we have the power to protect and support the organizations that are available to support ALL the women (and men) in our community! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! ♥
I so wanted to be there this morning but the roads between here (Old Snowmass) and Glenwood are frightful. This is a beautiful thing that we have done, thank you Ashley for all you are doing! I will be there in spirit :)
I am embarrassed to admit I had forgotten about this and would have cast the WRONG VOTE without your reminder! Thank you, Ashley!
How wonderful that grassroots fund raising was so powerful for this small Planned Parenthood outlet! Thanks to Ashley and all the donors. To hope to raise $1,500 and max out over $23,000 -- -it is inspiring. I am so glad that I was a small part of this effort.
Ashley, you should consider presenting the Gofundme check to PP at a BOCC public meeting during the time allotted to the public which they can say anytime they choose. Call the PI first for maximum coverage.
Thank you Ashley for putting this site together! The response on here is amazing. Planned Parenthood has been there for us or someone we know for all these years, I am so pleased that we can be there for them. They are a very important service, without them many women would have no where to go for affordable health care. Preventative screenings are probably the most important thing we can do for ourselves and no woman should have to go without it. I will be there on the 16th, thank you everyone for caring!
