Inspired by the mandala pieces I’ve been working on since the start of 2017 I created this piece “A Special Sort of Snowflake: (she won’t melt when you grab her)” It was accepted into the Nasty Women Art Chicago Exhibit and Fundraiser. All proceeds from the sales at the May 5th, 2017 event will go to Planned Parenthood, whose services have been under-fire and in threat of losing federal funding under our current administration. If Planned Parenthood loses funding 2.5 million patients would lose access to care. Another interesting fact from the Planned Parenthood website: “Barring Planned Parenthood health centers from Medicaid would result in a net cost of $130 million to taxpayers over 10 years due to increased unintended pregnancies without Planned Parenthood’s contraceptive care, projects the Congressional Budget Office.”
Once again I hope A Stitch In Time Saves…..because women’s health matters. Because awareness is important. Because it’s just one way to help. If you would like to help too, here are several more ideas! Go HERE and Stand with (me &) Planned Parenthood.
