    Default Target Stores

    Chris was'nt sure whether I should put this here or in the off topic. If you think it would be better moved go right ahead. I just thought it would get more hits here.

    Please read and forward this....

    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
    Veterans, then why should my family and I support their
    stores by spending our hard earned American dollars!
    And, have their profits sent to France.
    Without the American
    Vets, where would France be today?
    "They, most likely would be speaking German and trading in Deutsch Marks"

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

    Is'nt that some crazy stuff there?????? Just thought some of you may like to know this.
