Make a donation in the name of choice  

For those of you who are interested, there's a new and innovative way to say a big "fuck you" to Sarah Palin, and to help a good cause. A Feministing reader made a post, asking everyone to consider making a donation to Planned Parenthood in Sarah Palin's name. The best part? Sarah Palin will be sent a card, making her aware of the donation made in her honor. Heh.

If you can, go to Planned Parenthood's website, fill out the donation form, and be sure to put her name in under "I would like to make this gift in honor of." A good address to send acknowledgments to is the McCain campaign headquarters:

McCain for President

1235 South Clark Street

1st Floor

Arlington, VA 22202

Some people oppose doing this, thinking it might take money away from the Obama campaign. However, I don't find these two to be connected, just as long as you avoid donating money to Planned Parenthood that you would have otherwise donated to the Obama campaign. But even so, Planned Parenthood is a great cause that can always use more funds. And honestly, I think this is a great way to respectfully protest Sarah Palin's anti-choice stances.

What next?
