We #StandWithPP

Heres Why:

President Trump’s entrance to office has been nothing short of momentous.  Keeping to his many promises, President Trump is planning to defund Planned Parenthood, after being pushed by the Republican party.  By defunding Planned Parenthood, President Trump is taking away the nation’s leading providers of high-quality, affordable health care for women, men, and young people, and the nation’s largest provider of sex education. Planned Parenthood also works with partner organizations worldwide to improve the sexual health and well-being of individuals and families everywhere. ct-womens-march-national-pg-20170121

Planned Parenthood health centers focus on prevention: 80 percent of their patients receive services to prevent unintended pregnancy.

Planned Parenthood services help prevent approximately 579,000 unintended pregnancies in a single year.

Planned Parenthood provides more than 270,000 Pap tests and more than 360,000 breast exams in a single year, critical services in detecting cancer.

Planned Parenthood provides more than 4.2 million tests and treatments for sexually transmitted infections, including more than 650,000 HIV tests.

Planned Parenthood affiliates provide educational programs and outreach to 1.5 million young people and adults in a single year.

It is therefore our duty here at Shakti Apparel to support Planned Parenthood in any manner possible.  To do so, we are offering a limited edition Shakti Legging made of breathable cotton and spandex that conforms to your shape.  The legging features the Women’s Empowerment symbol and will be sold beginning May through August. The legging will cost $45.99 and 35% of sales will go towards funding Planned Parenthood.Screen Shot 2017-04-04 at 8.32.49 PM

Additionally, Shakti Apparel will be collaborating with yoga studios in 15 major cities to hold donation only yoga classes, of which 100% of the proceeds will go towards Planned Parenthood.

Finally, to raise awareness of this amazing opportunity, Shakti Apparel will hold pop-ups at 15 universities on the West Coast.  Stay tuned to find out if the Shakti yoga-mobile will be visiting your city or campus!
