Get to Know the Benefactor for Ariana Grande’s $250,000 Donation and its Advocacy
Ariana Grande is one of the most successful musicians around the globe. She started her flourishing career in the Broadway musical way back in 2008, when she was just thirteen years old. She got her big break when she played the character Cat Valentine in Nickelodeon’s Victorious TV series. Her songs dominated the Billboard chart, and she took home a Best Pop Vocal Album Grammy Award for the album Sweetener.
Her Philanthropic Activities
Aside from her wide vocal range, Grande’s voice echoes in different forms as well such as in humanitarianism.
The American singer-songwriter has been active in various philanthropic activities in the past years. She co-founded a charitable singing group for youths called Kids Who Care, educated children in South Africa about music, supported an anti-online-bullying campaign, performed for charity events for cancer survivors, rescued dogs, promoted the rights of the LGBT community, and a lot more.
Grande has always been passionate about advocating several causes, and apparently, she’s also very generous too. She uses her talent in music not only to entertain fans but also to fund a lot of charities that she’s supporting.
$250,000 Donation for the Planned Parenthood
After her successful concert in Atlanta, Georgia last June 8, she handed a $250,000 donation to the Planned Parenthood in support of the campaign against the anti-abortion bill. The organization aims to guard all reproductive rights and to provide health care access in the United States and all parts of the world.
The singer’s cash donation was her way to voicing out her opinion about the heartbeat bill. Georgia recently joined the states Kentucky, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Ohio to criminalize any form of abortion the moment that a fetus has a heartbeat. It usually takes more than six weeks for a pregnant woman to develop a sign of life in her tummy.
The president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund Dr. Leana Wen said that banning all forms of abortion, including the safe and legal process, isn’t beneficial to many women. It isn’t fair for the victims of rape that they don’t get a say about their unplanned motherhood.
Other Reproductive Rights Warriors
Dr. Wen and the whole institution are grateful for Grande’s grand timing to show her support. Her cash contribution, as well as moral support, will fire up the people behind the cause. They also stand hand-in-hand with other famous personalities such as Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Sadiq Khan.
Lady Gaga expressed her thoughts on how disappointed she is that doctors who are just helping the victims of unwanted pregnancies will have to pay penalties just like criminels. She called the newly-passed bill as a travesty and expressed her dismay on the system.
