Why are we jumping down her throat?
I mean, it's not the most articulate letter I've ever read, but still...
I think it's useful to know what organizations companies financially support-for people on both sides of issues. Maybe you'll donate because they support "Organization X", and maybe I'll avoid them because they don't financially support "Organization Y". It's nice to have all the information so each consumer can decide for themselves.
It seems to me like the people who give the most valuable lip service to being tolerant are actually the least tolerant of people with differing opinions. Please bear in mind, this is a consumer website, not a political one. All the original letter said was that she wanted to know if Wal * Mart donated to a specific cause. And why shouldn't she ask for that? If I asked "Do they donate to the Red Cross", no one would have said boo. But the responses turned this from a consumer oriented to a political discussion, and I really don't think that's the purpose of this website. I will conceed the OP did not help her cause with her follow up letters. But seriously, let's keep this on topic.
