altuzarra is auctioning nyfw show tickets to support planned parenthood
One of Michelle Obama's favorite designers is standing with one of America's most important non-profits.
Planned Parenthood has been opening its doors for everyday Americans since 1916, and now Altuzarra is too. The brand is getting behind the reproductive health non-profit by auctioning off two tickets to its New York Fashion Week runway show this Sunday night.
"We stand with Planned Parenthood," designer and Michelle Obama favourite Joseph Altuzarra declared on Instagram. "Announcing a special silent auction of two runway tickets to our upcoming NYFW Fall Winter 2017 Runway Show on Sunday, February 12, with all proceeds donated to @plannedparenthood @ppact." Participants will need to email a silent (and confidential) bid to firstname.lastname@example.org before 12pm today.
Anyone with Instagram/internet access will be aware of Planned Parenthood's uncertain future under the administration of Donald Trump. The president has promised to defund the crucial organisation due to approximately 3% of its services being abortion-related. If you're into lush threads and women's rights, get your bid in ASAP. And if you're not in New York this Sunday, you can donate to Planned Parenthood here.
