Ruffling A Few Feathers

Chuck’s sister Carol forwarded an e-mail she had received. It described an interesting proposal: donate to Planned Parenthood - - - - in Governor Sarah Palin’s name! When you do, Planned Parenthood will send a card to Governor Palin letting her know a donation has been made in her honor.

Turns out it’s not a new concept. No matter, a good idea is a good idea.

Governor Palin opposes abortion even if the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest. And at the very top of the priority list for McCain-Palin is overturning Roe v. Wade. (My position on this issue can be found here.)

Ready to participate? Go to Planned Parenthood. (Or go directly to the Donate-In-Honor-Of page) Make a contribution (minimum donation is just $5.00). Be sure to check the “I would like to make this gift in honor of” circle.

Then fill out the section with Sarah Palin’s name. The e-mail advises using the McCain-Palin campaign headquarters for the mailing address:

Governor Sarah Palin
John McCain 2008
P.O. Box 16118
Arlington, VA 22215

I think it’s important for Governor Palin and Senator McCain to understand the real impact they are making.

Hi Claudia -
I agree!
It was very satisfying to type the Governor's name into the "in honor of" blank.
Money well spent!
Thanks so much for spreading the word...

Hi DMM -
I love it too.
There's such a perfect symmetry to the whole thing.
It makes me wonder what other worthwhile organizations might be a similarly good fit...

Oh this makes me laugh! What a brilliant idea!

Hi SarahB -
Perfect isn't it?
Thank you for stopping by and commenting!

BTW, I love your Autumn Bliss Paper. I used it on my father-in-law's card (with a maroon overlay) and in another layout for my niece Carrie, the new bride! Thanks!

Hi Chell -
Thank you for coming over and leaving a comment!
I'm so glad the idea resonated with you and you were able to participate!
I'd love to know how many donations P.P. has received in her name!
