Digital News Report – The Candies Foundation is being criticized today for paying Bristol Palin more than they are paying-out to clinics to help prevent teenage pregnancy.
According to tax records, Palin was paid $262,500 for her work with the agency. The statements also include the employees pay. Think Progress found that Candies only paid out $35,000 in grants to actual teen pregnancy health and counseling clinics.
Candies is known for their celebrity endorsements. Other celebrities include Jenny McCarthy and Hayden Panettiere have been “ambassadors” for the foundation. They produce public service announcements (PSA) to promote abstinence.
