Anyone know if there's any truth to this?



>>>Something to know about TARGET Stores

>>>


>>> 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 can not support American


>>> Veterans, then why should I and my family support their stores


>>>by


>>> spending our hard earned American dollars and to have their


>>>profits sent


>>> to France. Without the American Vets, where would France be


>>>today?


>>> Feel free to pass this along to whomever you want.


>>> Sincerely,


>>> Dick Forrey

I'm glad it is just a myth. I find that attitude in the false email to be disturbing.

It's bull...

When in doubt..... SNOPES

Generally, if you see an email with that many forward tags, it's almost certainly a hoax, and worth checking.....just my 2 cents...

I occasionally shop at Target and would not shop there if this hoax was true. I'm glad someone posted the truth instead of just spreading unsubstantiated rumors. :hmm:
