The foundation’s website says Bristol Palin "plays an important role by helping other teens understand the incredible challenges teen parents face."The daughter of Sarah Palin helps do this by "encouraging them to wait until they are socially and financially independent to start their families.” Bristol is still working for the organization. An admirable cause, but is Bristol a good advocate? Answers and proofs may be presented in favor of both sides.her work The Candie's Foundation, a nonprofit organization that seeks to raise awareness of teen pregnancy and parenting issues, reported Bristol Palin's earnings to the Internal Revenue Service. "We know that Ms. Palin's work has had a positive effect on creating awareness about teen pregnancy," Ali Tyrangel, a spokeswoman for the foundation, said in a statement. Tyrangel said an independent survey of 1,000 teens comparing Bristol Palin public-service announcements with those of another organization using non-famous teens found that the Palin spots were much more powerful and attention-getting. "Bristol Palin has been a courageous and powerful partner to the Foundation as we attempt to discourage teen pregnancy," she said. Representatives for Candie's and Bristol Palin could not immediately be reached for comment.
