Halsey Donates $100,000 To Planned Parenthood After Women's March

The "Closer" singer pledged to donate $1 for every retweet.

Looks like Halsey is a woman of her word.

Hours after joining the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday, the 22-year-old singer-songwriter tweeted her support of Planned Parenthood and pledged to donate $1 (up to $100,000) for every retweet.

It didn’t take long for Twitter users to respond. Within five hours, her promise had been retweeted more than 100,000 times.  

Halsey followed up the next day to announce her donation to the women’s health organization.

The “Closer” singer has been outspoken about her own health struggles. She discussed her battle with endometriosis last January and, in July, opened up about having a miscarriage at age 20 just hours before an on-stage performance.

Halsey shared a photo from the march on Instagram Sunday and said on Twitter that the event was a “peaceful and inspiring experience.”
