Ariana Grande Donates All Proceeds From Georgia Concert To Planned Parenthood

By  | 


Ariana Grande just proved how much of a saint she really is and has donated the entire proceeds of her Atlanta, Georgia concert to Planned Parenthood. The massive donation comes shortly after Georgia joined three states that, in the last year, have banned abortions after six weeks of pregnancy — which is before many people even know they’re pregnant.

According to People, the donation sum comes to approximately $250,000 (!!!). Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Dr. Leana Wen issued a statement to the mag in which she said: “Ariana Grande’s generous donation comes at a critical time — in Georgia and across the country, anti-women’s health politicians are trying to ban all safe, legal abortion. This is not what the American people want, nor is it something they’ll stand for.”

“Thanks to inspiring support like hers, Planned Parenthood can continue to fight back — in the courts, in Congress, in state houses, and in the streets — against these dangerous attacks on people’s health and lives,” her statement continued. “We are so grateful to Ariana for her longstanding commitment to supporting women’s rights and standing with Planned Parenthood to defend access to reproductive health care. We won’t stop fighting — no matter what.”

The concert, which took place on June 8th, was crashed by an anti-Pride protester who held a flag with the word Pride crossed out on it. “man… saddened but not surprised by this one bit,” Ariana wrote in a Twitter response to the protester. “i’m so sorry any of my fans had to encounter this. we will do our best to ensure this doesn’t happen again,” she continued. “proud of u all for not fighting / engaging violently. never worth it. wishing him peace & a healed heart cause girl yikes.”

“he is highly outnumbered. you are all so celebrated and loved and safe,” she said in another tweet. “also, he was doing the be alright choreo in his garage later that night, i promise.”

Now is a time to stan Ariana more than ever. We love an equality activism queen.
