Bullies, we face them at all ages. The Skippy story for Kids
|As part of the justice for Skippy
campaign I announced a boycott of all CPC/Bestfoods
products effective 8-21-99.
This campaign's primary focus is to tell school aged children the real story about how the Skippy name was taken away from the Crosby Tibbetts family. Those children will in turn spread the word to their parents and teachers.
I wish to thank CPC/Bestfoods for inspiring this approach. The tactic was a direct result of their choosing August to launch their latest offensive to take the rest of the Crosby Tibbetts property.
The reason, in my view, that they chose August is that so many people are on vacation at that time of year. And it can be very difficult to contact the appropriate people.
|The downside of launching an attack at
that time is that it is just in time to respond by
spreading the word among the biggest consumers of peanut
butter, school age children.
We are building the organization at this time. We need children and young adults to spread the word on children's internet forums.
We need high school children, young adults, and adults to post to adult forums and to write letters to the editor and oped pieces of about 1000 words for national publications.
The brand names effected are:
Argo, Best Foods, Golden Griddle, Hellmann's, Henri's, Karo, Kingsford's, Knorr, Mazola, Mueller's, Skippy, or Western Bovril, Brownberry (croutons), Stone-Buhr, Panni, Alsa, Iberia, and Rit Arnold, Boboli, Bouyea Fassetts, Brownberry (breads, stuffing), Entenmann's, Freihofer's, Old Country, Oroweat, Thomas'
For the record, I and the other activists who have brought this case to media's attention have no personal stake in the case except to see justice prevail.
More information, including copies of some of the previous court actions are posted at www.Skippy-SCAM.org/. Feel free to call if you have questions.
