My pal over at The Den of All Things Dave pointed out (as has been pointed out to her by other people) that the American Family Association is currently promoting a boycott of Hallmark greeting cards because Hallmark had the audacity marketing savvy to be the first to come out with same sex marriage greeting cards. So my pal, crazywritinfool, has taken advantage of the automated and convenient feature that the AFA has put out to send Hallmark a note of appreciation for offering the service.
Me?? I’m on board with crazywritinfool (cause she’s crazy, and cause she’s a fool, and a person is known by the company they keep or the blogs that they read) and you could be too by clicking on this link to the AFA and completely reediting the note in the box to basically state the exact opposite of what it says.
Think of it this way — not only will you be giving kudos to Hallmark for the new line of greeting cards, you’ll also be taking advantage of the lovely services of the AFA (to do exactly what they don’t want done).
By the way — if’n you want to cheat, here’s my text …
Dear Chairman Hall:
I am surprised that Hallmark is promoting an greeting cards for gay marriage. I’m surprised and thrilled. I just wish I knew a gay couple that was about to get married so I’d be able to purchase a card. I typically make my own greeting cards, but in the future I will make a point of purchasing Hallmark cards to support your business.
