Target Stores,,What A Surprise..!

Wasn’t it last Christmas that Target refused to let the Salvation Army ring their bells in front of their stores?

Dick Forrey of the Vietnam Veterans Association wrote.

‘Recently we asked the local TARGET store to be a proud
sponsor of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall during our
spring recognition event.

We received the following reply
from the local TARGET management:

‘ Veterans do not meet our
area of giving. We only donate to the arts, social action
groups, gay & lesbian causes, and education.’

So I’m thinking, if the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall and
veterans in general, do not meet their donation criteria,
then something is really wrong at this TARGET store.
We were
not asking for thousands of dollars, not even hundreds, just
a small sponsorship for a memorial remembrance.

As a follow-up, I, E-mailed the TARGET U.S.. Corporate
Headquarters and their response was the same…

That’s their
national policy!!!

Then I looked into the company further..
They will not allow
the Marines to collect for ‘Toys for Tots’at any of their
stores. And during the recent Iraq deployment,they would
not allow families of employees who were called up for
active duty to continue their insurance coverage while
they were on military service..
Then as I dig further,
TARGET
is a French-owned corporation.

Now, I’m thinking again..
If TARGET cannot support American (or Canadian) Veterans, then why should my family and I support their
stores by spending our hard earned American (or Canadian) dollars in their stores???
And,
have their profits sent to France .

Without the American (and Canadian)
Vets, where would France be today?

‘They, most likely would be speaking German and trading in Deutsch Marks’

Sincerely,

Please send this on to everyone you know
to let Target know
we don’t need them either !

we¹re all in a position to reduce sales to these stores as soon as this gets around! ! ! !….SO THERE IS POWER IN THE PEN!!!!!!!!!!!!
