Ferguson, who shot to fame in Modern Family, also took the opportunity to announce the nonprofit he and Mikita founded, Pronoun, is making donations of $25,000 to ACLU, the National Abortion Federation, and Everytown for Gun Safety.

“Like the majority of people in this country right now, we are heartbroken at the attacks all over the country — from senseless gun violence to state by state attacks on our transgender family and an onslaught of attacks on women’s reproductive health,” said Ferguson.

“Our non-profit @pronounorg continues to raise funds for the incredible organizations on the ground fighting for LGBTQIA+ equality — which of course includes the fights for reproductive health, sensible gun reform & transgender equality — to name a few.

“We are so proud to be partnering with @shopmilimili [baby brand MiliMili], a female (mommy) owned small business made in LA, on a gorgeous custom collection of sleep sacks, crib sheets, eye masks & robes designed by queer artist @katiekaapcke with 100% of the proceeds going to PRONOUN.

“We will be using these resources to target states where reproductive health and transgender rights are currently under constant attack, starting today with a $25,000 donation each to @aclu_nationwide, @nationalabortionfederation & @everytown.”

“We are so excited to have a little one joining our growing family — and so proud to support the choice to do it.

“To shop the collection or for more information, head to www.Pronoun.org.”
