The Dannon Company supports "Million Mom March"
A member of JPFO wrote to the makers of Dannon yogurt asking if/why they supported the so-called Million Mom March. This is the reply they received:
July 25, 2000
Thank you for taking the time to contact The Dannon Company in reference to our support of the Million-Mom March. We sincerely appreciate the opportunity to share the reasons behind our decision to be involved in this cause. I hope that this letter will provide you new information, and will help you to better understand our decision. The Million-Mom March is an event that is organized by mothers nationwide.
The event is dedicated to the mission of educating our children and our country about the life-threatening danger of guns. The intent is not to ban gun ownership. Rather, the effort is to request tighter gun control and safety. Guns need to be kept out of the hands of people who are violent or deranged and away from children. Specifically, the requests include:
waiting ("cooling off") periods, background checks, licensing handgun owners, registering all handguns, gun safety locks and a limit to the number of handguns an individual can purchase in a month.
Anyone interested in more information about Million-Mom March can call 1-888-989-MOMS or visit their website:
Once again, thank you for contacting Dannon, we sincerely appreciate your call and the opportunity to share information on The Million-Mom March. We truly value you as a dedicated Dannon consumer, and hope that you will continue to enjoy our products with complete confidence and satisfaction. Please be assured that our lines are always open for the questions, comments, and concerns of our consumers. Please do not hesitate to call us anytime at 1-877-DANNONUS.
