Help Planned Parenthood by Purchasing This Gorgeous Cookbook — Pop Culture

There are many ways you can help or get involved with Planned Parenthood, the nonprofit organization that gives people affordable access to reproductive and sexual care around the country and globe. You can donate money once or on a monthly basis, and you can give your time as a volunteer. And now, thanks to Leela Cyd and Anne Parker, you can buy a beautiful cookbook where 100 percent of the proceeds are donated to the organization. It's a delicious deal.
