Young Republican Women, Meghan McCain And Lauren Bush, Campaign On QVC And HSN

September 16, 2010

Meghan McCain

Sen. John McCain is a maverick we always admired, and we like his feisty daughter Meghan, too.

Meghan, who refused to conform to the stereotype of what a young Republican woman should look and act like during her dad’s presidential run, has a new book out about her experiences during the campaign.

She has done a ton of press to promote the tell-all book, “Dirty Sexy Politics,” including an interview in the Sept. 13 issue of People magazine.

That story says that Meghan is doing a plus-size apparel line for QVC. She told People she knows how to make clothes that will flatter “bigger boobs and butts.” We’re all for that.

Lauren Bush and Ellen Gustafson

Meanwhile, another GOP daughter is selling a product over at QVC rival HSN. Lauren Bush, the former First Niece and model, will be appearing on-air on HSN with her FEED Trick-or-Treat bags.

Bush and Ellen Gustafson are the co-founders of FEED Projects, a charitable organization whose mission its to create good products that FEED the world. So far “FEED Bags” have provided funding for more than 55 million school meals for children around the world through the United Nations World Food Program.

The FEED Trick-or-Treat project marks the launch of a new FEED/HSN partnership with the U.S. Fund for UNICEF in honor of the 60th anniversary of Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. For each “FEED Trick-or-Treat” bag purchased at HSN or, HSN will donate $3.50 to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF to help support UNICEF micronutrient supplement powder programs. These programs help children under the age of five with a high malnutrition risk and for just about $3.50 UNICEF can provide a child with fortified nutrition for one year

The FEED Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF bag is available for $13.20, exclusively at through Halloween, and
HSN will be donating 100 percent of its profits from the bag to UNICEF.
