Palin Raising Money For Planned Parenthood

Last week a friend of mine passed along the viral email being reported below. The joke is that when you donate online to Planned Parenthood in someone's name, the site asks you to include their mailing address so they can send an automatically generated thank you note.

Sounds like Sarah Palin's mailbox might be starting to get pretty full.
The latest mark of what a polarizing figure Sarah Palin has quickly become: A viral email, of unknown origin, urging readers to contribute in Palin's name to Planned Parenthood has raised nearly a million dollars for the group.

From the press release:
Call it the ultimate in grassroots activity, a viral email urging people to donate to Planned Parenthood “in honor of Sarah Palin” generated more than 31,313 donations totaling more than three-quarters of a million dollars ($802,678) as of today. With contributions from all 50 states, more than two-thirds of the individuals making a contribution “in honor of Sarah Palin” are first-time Planned Parenthood donors.
That's an average donation of $25 per person.
