A Tale of Two Ladies Helping Children

This lady had lots of publicity…and a White House Press Release

CBS News, AP, ABC News, Sacramento Bee: “Michelle Obama Donates To Toys For Tots”
Washington Post: “Michelle Obama plays Santa Claus for Toys for Tots”

….and this lady had none….

LOCAL Juneau Empire Gov. Sarah Palin meets with Juneau Girl Scouts to help sell cookies at Fred Meyer on Saturday. Last Sunday, two Girl Scouts were robbed by a masked assailant as they were leaving Fred Meyer with proceeds from their cookie sales. A 17-year-old suspect has been arrested for the crime. Juneau Fred Meyer Store Director Jaime San Miguel, on behalf of Fred Meyer, presented Girl Scout Troop 32 with a check for $800 to replace the money that was robbed. Fred Meyer also matched dollar for dollar all of the cookie sales for the time Gov. Palin helped the Girl Scouts at the store. The Girl Scouts sold 943 boxes of cookies for a grand total of $3772. (March 2009)

    Great post!… comparing these two women makes more sense than comparing FLOTUS with ex-supermodel Carla Bruni.
    And thanks for the trackback!

    • You’re so welcome for the trackback ! You know I wish the First Lady well, but I like to acknowledge other great ladies too, especially those comfortable in their own skin 🙂
