Protest Bank of America’s HSUS Credit Card
Once again the HSUS has pulled the wool over corporate America's eyes. Bank of America is now offering “The Humane Society of the United States® WorldPoints® Platinum Plus® Visa® Card.”
Does no one in the financial system have an ounce of common sense anymore? Should I even ask that question?
I got the initial alert from AgWired: Protest Bank of America’s HSUS Credit Card
And here is the person that more than likely can get the information to the right parties:
Nancy M. Condos
VP/ Customer Advocate
Executive Customer Relations
Office of the Chairman
Unfortunately you cannot email them, they do not permit any incoming email. I spent five minutes trying to get an e-mail address from their corporate office but they just don't give them out, internal use only.
You can also call the Executive Customer Relations general line: 704-386-5687

Dear Ms. Nancy M. Condos,
I have become aware that Bank of America support the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) through a credit card program that gives 25 cents to the HSUS for every 100 dollars charged to the credit card.
I urge you to reconsider this support. The HSUS is an Animal Rights (AR) group that many confuse with local ‘Humane Society’ shelters. However, Humane Society of United States is not affiliated with any of them. They are a powerful well funded AR group, who instead of helping shelters and animals directly, works hard on eventually removing pets from our homes, meat from our tables, leather goods from our closets, stop fishing and hunting, and remove animals from zoos and circuses.
The HSUS is very similar to PeTA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) with respect to its goal... No meat. No dairy. No animal agriculture. Period. The HSUS income is in excess of one hundred million dollars annually, with net assets over two hundred million.
Bank of America can hopefully find an actual charity, one that does do something for animals, rather than sponsor a group that does nothing for animals and limits an individual’s right.
Everyone knows the drill. Copy, paste, etc.
Look, only you can make a difference it does us no good if everyone doesn't take a couple of minutes print it out and fire that fax off to Ms. Condos. If you have an account with BOA tell them, and tell them that you may consider switching your bank. Please take a moment and help us all out!
