Bristol Palin earned $262,500 talking about abstinence

TMZ reports that according to tax forms, Palin earned $262,000 in 2009 for her work with The Candie’s Foundation.

The sum was made public when the most recent data for The Candie’s Foundation was posted online by research firm GuideStar.

Bristol was 18 and had just given birth to son Tripp when she became an ambassador for the foundation in 2009.

The ‘Pause Before You Play’ ad Bristol made for Candie’s shows her and 2-year-old Tripp, along with montages from her mother’s 2008 campaign.

Bristol asks the question in the ad: ‘What if I didn’t come from a famous family? What if I didn’t have all their support? What if I didn’t have all these opportunities? Believe me it wouldn’t be pretty. Pause before you play.’
