If you're looking for ways to help after the disastrous results of the Presidential Election, supporting organizations that seem threatened by the Republican platform might be a good way to start. One of those orgs is Planned Parenthood, of course, which provides accessible health care to women and families.
Planned Parenthood was trending on Twitter on Wednesday as people urged each other to donate money. Run the Jewels' El-P jumped at the opportunity, gathering up $5,000 to give.
The rapper also encouraged other musicians, no matter how successful, to set aside funds for charity.
one of the things i've been lucky enough to be able to do on the heels of the success of my group is donate money where i think it can help.— el-p (@therealelp) November 9, 2016
i was taught to do that if you can and you dont publicize it or draw attention to it. but today im thinking of my mom, sisters and nieces.— el-p (@therealelp) November 9, 2016

and thats all i got on this day. its a start for me. im revving up for a fight.— el-p (@therealelp) November 9, 2016
for my fellow musicians: many of you are doing well. if so,consider putting aside a few show fees per tour and putting it towards a charity.— el-p (@therealelp) November 9, 2016

Run the Jewels counterpart Killer Mike was also vocal on Wednesday, going on The Real to talk about how Donald Trump preyed on poor Americans' anger. He's also been tweeting about how he feels the Democratic National Convention screwed America by nominating Hillary Clinton. Mike, quite obviously, is a clear Bernie Sanders supporter.
