Use Your Shares to Increase Compassionate Giving

From Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM)

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is working on a campaign to seek commitments from several prominent companies to end their charitable donations that specifically fund antiquated, unscientific, cruel, and ineffective animal research.

Do you or any of your family members, friends or patients own stock in any of these companies:

American Airlines
Best Buy
Coca-Cola Co.
Delta Air Lines
Exxon Mobil
Molson Coors Brewing Co.
Wal-Mart Stores


Katherine Lin, e-mail, (202) 686-2210 x 350.


We will be filing a number of shareholder proposals to request that the companies implement policies on humane giving. These new policies would end the financial support of animal research with little, if any, human health value, and instead promote the charitable support of humane, non-animal research with human health benefits. We are in need of persons owning stock in the above listed companies to support these proposals. These proposals are an important step in our efforts to end cruel and ineffective animal research. Our filing deadlines will be quickly approaching in the coming months, so we need to hear from you soon to diligently proceed.

We need one or more shareholders for each one of the companies. The stock must be worth at least $2,000 and have been held at least since September 2008. The stock can be held in your own name, or by your broker, but it cannot be owned through a mutual fund. If you or someone you know fits into this category, and is interested in helping, please contact PCRM attorney Katherine Lin either by e-mail or phone at (202) 686-2210 x 350. If you would like to help, please act now.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
