HERSHEY BOYCOTT announced BETTER LATE THAN NEVER

(1/2) > >>

emeraldize:
I just received word today of a call for a boycott and letter writing campaign against Hershey because the private school which they help fund rejected an eligible HIV-positive student.

Here's a Facebook link to the initiating agency -- I'll try to amend later with the letter-writing campaign link.

Thanks Em for staying on top of this terrible injustice led by fear, ignorance and bigotry. :(

emeraldize:
Hi Jody!

Thanks for the note. I've decided for my candy purchasing that boycotting Hershey needs to go well beyond the Valentine's Day spending. I intend to write them again and let them know.

I did not know about this. I read this to my daughter who is negative and I gave birth to her while I was positive. Her favorite candy is hershey kisses. She said she won't buy then now.

emeraldize:
Hi Idee,

I think that's great that you share such information with your daughter. There are plenty of other non-Hershey candies in the world. Probably best to look at a list of all the candies they make -- it goes well beyond chocolates.
