Planned Parenthood Wireless

This is new territory as far as I can tell: Planned Parenthood is selling a wireless phone plan so that supporters can contribute directly to the organization with every phone call. This may be even more effective than Pledge-a-Picket. Here’s the Planned Parenthood e-mail pitching the idea:

  Switch to Planned Parenthood Wireless - we'll buy out your current plan.
    Dear Planned Parenthood? Supporter:Is it just us, or does it seem like we’ve become much more aware of how the little choices we make every day can add up to something greater? Even just deciding to walk instead of drive to the store, it’s just amazing how people are recognizing that each of our small, individual decisions can matter and affect real, positive changes.So we’re writing to let you know about another choice you can make. In this case, a choice that will help support Planned Parenthood’s mission to provide safe and effective health care and medically accurate information for women and families all around the world.Working Assets is proud to now offer
Planned Parenthood Wireless – a cell phone service through which 10% of all your monthly phone charges goes to Planned Parenthood Federation of America at no extra cost to you. You will get great wireless service and help a great cause, simply by making a conscientious choice about your cell phone company. This special offer for Planned Parenthood supporters is available through March 31.
    Today, more than ever before, it’s our actions that will define what kind of people
we are, and what kind of world we want to live in. By choosing Planned Parenthood
Wireless, you’ll be helping to protect the right of women and families everywhere
to make their own decisions about their health care and their lives.

Sincerely yours,
