Bristol, 20, is paid by The Candie’s Foundation, which has been raising awareness about teen pregnancy since 2001.
The unwed mother was 18 years old when she was appointed as a teen ambassador for the foundation, shortly after giving birth to son Tripp, now 2. Bristol told the Associated Press that girls would think twice about having sex if they knew how tough it is to be a mother. She said she “wasn’t prepared at all” to become a mom adding, ”I don’t think anyone realizes how difficult it really is until you actually have a screaming baby in your arms and you’re up all night.”
The Candie’s Foundation posted the following on its website:
Ms. Palin was compensated for her work with the foundation, which included appearing in video and print PSAs, two town hall meetings, and numerous media interviews…We know that Ms. Palin’s work has had a positive effect on teens…Bristol Palin is one of dozens of celebrities who has worked with the foundation. She has been a courageous and powerful partner to the foundation as we attempt to discourage teen pregnancy.
What do you think of Bristol’s massive salary?
