Defender of the Week
Our star defender of the week: Megan D. (30, CA) is passionate about gaming — so when she wanted to step up for Planned Parenthood, it only made sense for her to spearhead #Play4PP, a 24-hour gaming marathon supporting Planned Parenthood. She and her community of gamers have already raised over $13,500, and they’re still going strong in the run up to the marathon in March. Thank you Megan for your passion and dedication to supporting and protecting Planned Parenthood!
