Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern who make up Sofi Tukker, are more than just amazing musicians, but supporters of Planned Parenthood as well. They recently partnered with Plus1 for their TreeHouse tour to donate to Planned Parenthood.
Sofi Tukker will donate $1 from every ticket sold of their TreeHouse tour to Planned Parenthood, and they have raised $20,000 so far. Sophia Hawley-Weld is thankful for the big part Planned Parenthood played in her life, as well as her friends lives, “I am so grateful to Planned Parenthood. It’s a big part of my life and all of my friends’ lives. To be able to give back what ended up being a significant contribution felt really, really powerful.”
This is not the only organization they plan to donate to this year, they will be donating to The Trevor Project, which is a suicide hotline for LGBTQ youth that is confidential and toll-free. This is a beautiful way to do something fun, as well as help others. If you are wanting to see Sofi Tukker, and donate, they will be at The Electric Picnic on September 3, and you can check out the whole tour here.
