Planned Parenthood is so much more than just an abortion clinic!!! It's a place where women can go to receive affordable health care! They provide so many services such as: mammograms, annual checkups, cancer screening, and so much more at a lesser cost! Garfield County Commissioners can cut whatever funds they want without seeing the effect it has on the public! Lets pull together as a community and show them that WE are in charge of our own health decisions! $1,500.00 is the amount that the government decided that planned parenthood in Garfield County would not receive. So, that is the amount we are hoping to raise, if not more. We are our own health advocates! I am a woman, HEAR MY VOICE! Politicians are not in charge of my health decisions or yours! Take back what they took, and help women's health choices matter! Donate now! (Gofundme has asked that I be very specific in this description. My name is Ashley Johnson, I currently reside in Carbondale, Colorado, and I work at the local pharmacy as a technician. I decided to open this campaign to help raise money for the Garfield county planned parenthood after reading an article in the local paper discussing the funds that were cut by the county commissioners. Every penny earned here will be donated to the Garfield county planned parenthood minus the fees for gofundme website. I have been in communication with Jennifer hunter , who is the director of annual funding for planned parenthood out of the Denver office. All funds will be deposited into a special donations account with Wells Fargo by november 16th. On the morning of November 16th I will go close the account, and the bank will issue me a cashiers check. On november 16 at 11:00 A.M. I invite everyone to come to the glenwoood springs planned parenthood health center to wittness the exchange of the check! Its not much of a planned event, but i know that there are many donors that want to be there! I encourage all donors and the public to follow this story to the end. Everything will be recorded, documented, and posted here-- photos included of the check exchange as well! I will also be meeting with rebecca Murray- the health center manager on Monday November 16th to meet the staff, and learn about the many services offered at our local office! Please continue to support thus amazing cause!)

With elections around the corner I just want to remind everyone why we had to raise money a year ago. Please consider your elected canidate for county commissioner if you haven't already. We need to support our planned parenthood! We need to shine the spotlight on the fact that we lost a $1500.00 grant, yet the county commissioner now has to pay back $1800.00 that can't be accounted for. I stand with planned parenthood, do you?

Happy Monday everyone! Today is the big day! The check presentation will be at 11 o'clock this morning at the Glenwood Springs Health Center in West Glenwood near the mall. I understand if many of you cannot make it due to the road conditions and snow, but for those of you who are coming to the celebration please be prepared to be outside in the snow. We cannot go inside due to patient privacy laws, and the clinic will be open to its patients today.The check presentation will take place in the parking lot between Planned Parenthood and Big O Tires. I encourage Planned Parenthood supporters to wear pink!! This is a day of such a beautiful celebration and I look forward to seeing each and everyone of you! Thank you for your continued support!!

Hello everyone! As of right now Between the GoFundMe campaign, and the Wells Fargo donation account we have reach $23,600! We are only $1,400 away from our $25,000 goal! I hope that we reach that goal, but if not we have already raised so much money that will help so many people!

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!! ♥

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!
