9,999 Friends of PA

Pennsylvania lost a "Friend" when Janet Milkman, the President of 10,000 Friends of Pennsylvania took a new job with Future of Life, Inc. , a nonprofit cult dedicated to saving every living thing and selling T-shirts and bumper stickers. With her departure, the organization no longer has the required 10,000 friends and will be changing its name to 9,999 Friends of Pennsylvania.

According to Julie Lalo, Vice President for Strategic Communciations, the name change should generate new interest in the organization. "You can never buy anything for $10, it's always $9.99, so the new name will be something that people can relate to."
