~~ ACTION ALERT ~~
Contact Chevrolet and tell them that their “Dream Hunting Trip” giveaway will prevent you from buying a Chevy product
General Motors’ Chevrolet division is running an elaborate campaign
promoting hunting and giving away a "dream hunting trip".
Given General Motors’ and Chevrolet’s financial trouble, it makes
sense to appeal to a tiny minority of the auto-buying public while
the majority. Please contact Chevrolet Customer Service and politely but
firmly demand that they end the contest without giving away the killing
Below is a sample letter that you can personalize and send to
Thank you to Annamarie Alteri for bringing this to our attention.
I find it highly disappointing that Chevrolet feels the need to
the most violent members of society by running a promotion to win a
hunting trip.” By running such a campaign and contest the company has
ensured that I will not buy another Chevrolet product until such myopic
promotional efforts are abandoned.
According to data from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, only four
of the American public hunts for recreation. Given that only a fraction
that number are licensed drivers with the financial means to buy new
Chevrolet trucks, by appealing to those who take pleasure in needlessly
violently killing wildlife Chevrolet has offended a far greater
of the public that now sees the company as one that is anti-environment,
anti-wildlife, and pro-violence.
Until this promotion is dropped and Chevrolet agrees to not again
needless violence and animal cruelty, I will encourage others to avoid
business with the company.
Your response will be greatly appreciated.
