LEVIS STRAUSS SUPPORTS P.E.T.A.

Well all of you sportsmen out there who are LEVIS GUYS… Guess what…

Levis Strauss has made a donation close to the million dollar mark to P.E.T.A.

Consumer Relations Specialist for Levis Strauss, Shawn Rossiter told me last week that The employees and the family owned company of Levis Strauss made a “considerable donation” to P.E.T.A., per the request of an employee who passed away family, she also informed me that several employees of Levis Strauss support P.E.T.A. and receive matching donations from the parent company of Levis Strauss.

The Levis Strauss Social giving guidelines are: “For the past 50 years, the Levi Strauss Foundation's grantmaking has supported and led social change. Our strategic initiatives range from funding an organization that provides girls in underdeveloped regions of Pakistan access to education to providing resources for Mujeres en Desarrollo, a nonprofit organization in the Dominican Republic that motives young people to change risky behavior by informing them about HIV/AIDS.”

Three interrelated issues direct our global giving programs:

Preventing the Spread of HIV/AIDS through prevention-related programs targeting women and youth, particularly where local policy-makers are receptive or where social bias about HIV/AIDS remains strong;
Increasing Economic Development Opportunities by supporting workforce development, micro-enterprise programs and asset-building initiatives for youth and women; and
Ensuring Access to an Education by funding organizations and programs that provide youth with access where none is likely or by reconnecting young people with school and learning through art and creative expression programs.


When I asked Ms. Rossiter if Levis Strauss had any plans to support wildlife conservation now or in the future, she replied “You can see that wildlife conservation is not part of the focus of the Levis Strauss Foundation” and “wildlife conservation is not something we would consider supporting”.

Since I heard this rumor and have now verified it myself. It is time for sportsmen in Arizona and America let their voice be heard LOUD and CLEAR…

I urge all of you to send the Levis Straus Company a strong message and boycott all products produced by them for yourselves and your family.

"Dedicated to preserving our outdoors heritage from the ground up"

Might as well wear them.. They're already paid for, nothing would be gained by throwing away perfectly good jeans!

CWU girl, I think I'll take that advice. They were expensive, even at Costco! I just won't buy them again, unless I hear different about where they are donating money. Oh..and I was wondering, are you single?
