CBS Donates 'Mom' Emmy Campaign Budget to Planned Parenthood

CBS Donates 'Mom' Emmy Campaign Budget to Planned Parenthood

Instead of spending money on an Emmy Awards campaign for the comedy Mom this year, CBS has announced plans to donate the budget to Planned Parenthood.

Allison Janney has joined forces with Mom co-creator and executive producer Chuck Lorre to help raise awareness for the organization amid the American Health Care Act’s threat to PP’s funding.

“In Los Angeles County alone, we answer approximately 2,000 calls each day from people asking us for help,” said Sue Dunlap, president-CEO of Planned Parenthood Los Angeles. “Across the country, millions of women and men are relying on Planned Parenthood health centers for their basic care – like birth control, life-saving cancer-screenings, and STD testing and treatment. We are committed to being here for them, no matter what. Generous support from our community fuels this work, and we are honored that the team behind Mom is launching this campaign at this critical time.”

Allison won Emmys for her work on Mom in 2014 and 2015.
