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.

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.
