Alright, friends! I just made the final donation to Planned Parenthood from Lucy Knisley‘s and my Party With Planned Parenthood fundraiser print!
Back in April, Lucy stopped in Portland on part of her whirwind book tour for Relish. We’re both strong supporters of Planned Parenthood and of doing collaborative drawings together so we decided to squish these two interests into one! Thus… Party With Planned Parenthood was born.
Real life Planned Parenthood supporters sent us their photos for us to draw them into the enormous party scene. We drew and inked the artwork together and then Lucy colored the line art digitally. I printed them out as a limited edition of 25 on fancy paper and after numbering them, we both signed them.
Over the last few months we’ve sold the original artwork and all of the prints!
In October we donated $1,150
In November we donated $250
And now, December, we’ve donated the final $250
Which comes to a total of $1,650 donated to Planned Parenthood!
But here’s the great thing– for the month of December, Planned Parenthood has a donation matching program in place, which means every donation you make gets matched by an anonymous donor.
So that means our final $250 was automatically matched by a mystery donor to become $500! Which brings our total amount of money raised for Planned Parenthood to $1,900!!!!!
Our heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who bought the original art and all the prints. I hope you’re enjoying the artwork and feeling awesome for helping out an absolutely vital service provider like Planned Parenthood.
