INDIANAPOLIS - Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky (PPINK) has received nearly 1,400 donations in the week since Election Day, when Indiana's Gov. Mike Pence became the Vice President-elect. In seven days, supporters across the country have contributed more than $25,000 to the organization.
"We are pleased that this outpouring of support recognizes the good work PPINK does and we welcome the financial support to continue to serve our patients who need us the most," said Betty Cockrum, President and CEO of PPINK. "Hoosiers have recognized how bad Pence is for women for a really long time and now the nation is joining us in the fight against him."
Donations to PPINK have increased online by 1,700 percent since the election. The trend took off on social media, with donors posting about their donations and encouraging others to contribute. Pence will receive notifications of the donations that are made to PPINK in his honor at his office in the Indiana Statehouse.
