Sorry, had to dig this one back up. This is too good to not add. My girlfriend who worked at a rape awareness and prevention organization called in her donation and the woman on the other line said the call and donations have been pooring in!
From a FW:
We may have thought we wanted a woman on a national political ticket, but will any woman do? I can't bear the thought of Sarah Palin as Vice President of the United States, not to mention (potential) president?
I suspect many of you are not happy with Palin's selection due to her positions on women's issues and her Bush-like compensation for lack of experience with brashness, exessive decisiveness, and distrustful behavior (mis-truths like the bridge and her supposed visits to Iraq and Ireland; cronieism; illegally conducting official business with personal emails, etc.).
Some of you may already have supported the Obama campaign financially, and feel you can't do much more right now. So, may I suggest the following inexpensive alternative to UNsupport her?
Make a donation to Planned Parenthood in Sarah Palin's name. A Planned Parenthood donation is tax deductible, while a political donation isn't. 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:
***Go to donate, then honorary gifts***
You'll need to fill in the address at the bottom to let PP know where to send the 'in Sarah Palin's honor' card (the top address if for your credit card.) The minimum donation is only $5.00, so you don't need to go broke to send your message.
Have them send the thank-you card to the McCain campaign headquarters:
McCain for President
1235 S. Clark Street
Arlington, VA 22202
Feel free to send this along to all your friends - women and men - and urge them to do the same.
