To let me and Randy Paynter know that Care 2 Members are interested and waiting for a reply to the petition and email sent to him.
The body of the email I sent to Randy today (23 September 2012) reads as follows:
I understand Randy that the concerns of your Care2 Members are very important to you. As such I sent a petition to you by email, some weeks ago, signed by Care2 Members "Do our 'clicks to donate' to breast cancer fund research that experiments and tests on animals?". Many of those who signed commented, with quite some passion and concern, about this question.
If you have misplaced this petition or my email (I am sure you receive many emails), I can send this to you again.
I understand Randy that you are very busy, which is why I have allowed a few weeks before sending you this follow up email. However, I posted on the Care2 site, a message informing members that I had sent the petition on to you. As such Care 2 Members are waiting for me to post an answer from you. In fact I have had a number of inquiries asking if I have heard from you as yet.
Please reply email if you need me to resend the petition to you or if you need a little more time to answer the question that this petition raises.
Yours in good faith
Care2 animal lovers do not want to 'click to donate' to research that experiments and tests on animals!
Dear Care 2 members and visitors
My passion is the welfare and rights of animals.
I like to 'click to donate' when I visit this site but given my passion for animals I am very concerned about' clicking to donate' to breast cancer research. When we click to cure breast cancer 100% of the donations go to the Susan G. Komen organisation to manage and support breast cancer research.
By signing this petition you will be asking the Care2 Management team to investigate and advise us if Susan G. Komen uses the money we donate to support research that experiments and tests on animals.
I have asked Care2 this question before but have received no response from them. So please join me in asking again.
When this petition closes, I will send it to the Care2 Management team and advise you all of their answer to this vital question. If they can not assure us that our donations do not go to research that experiments and tests on animals - then I hope you will join me again in taking further action.
