Paramore To Donate Portion Of Tour Proceeds To Abortion Services
Paramore will donate a portion of the proceeds from their upcoming tour to organisations which provide reproductive and abortion services.
The band announced on Thursday that $1 (84p) from every ticket sale will be donated to ARC Southeast to help women access abortion services following the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
A statement from Paramore on their Instagram account reads, “We are outraged by the SCOTUS decision to overturn Roe V. Wade, ending the federal constitutional right to abortion, affecting millions across the country. $1 of every ticket sold for our US Fall 2022 shows will be donated to ARC Southeast, an organization that provides funding and logistical support to ensure Southerners receive safe and compassionate reproductive care including abortion services.”
The donation will go to two different organisations for two of their shows. A dollar from every ticket sold for their Kansas show will be donated to the Kansas Abortion Fund, which provides financial aid to those seeking a termination, and $1 from every ticket sold for their Toronto gig will be donated to Women’s Shelters Canada.
The continued, “We look forward to supporting more causes on future dates and thank you to those of you coming to these start up dates.
