Dig Deep!

There are many reasons to support organizations that represent our interests and values. I had an email in my inbox yesterday that provided yet another excellent reason to give to Planned Parenthood to help support the work they do. I have included the email below in case it resonates with you too.

Dear Friends:

We may have thought we wanted a woman on a national political ticket, but the joke has really been on us, hasn't it? Are you as sick in your stomach as I am at the thought of Sarah Palin as Vice President of the United States ?

Since Palin gave her speech accepting the Republican nomination for the Vice Presidency, Barack Obama's campaign has raised over $10 million dollars. Some of you may already be supporting the Obama campaign financially; others of you may still be a little honked off over the primaries. None of you, however, can be happy with Palin's selection, especially on her positions on women's issues. So, if you feel you can't support the Obama campaign financially, may I suggest the following fiendishly brilliant alternative?

Make a donation to Planned Parenthood. In Sarah Palin's name. And here's the good part: when you make a donation to PP in her name, they'll send her a card telling her that the donation has been made in her honor. Here's the link to the Planned Parenthood website (make sure to click on the link to donate in someone's honor so she gets your card)

You'll need to fill in the address to let PP know where to send the "in Sarah Palin's honor" card. I suggest you use the address for the Alaska Governor's Mansion, which is:

Governor Sarah Palin
716 Calhoun Avenue
Juneau, Alaska 99801

I've made my contribution to honor Governor Palin, how about you?
