Painless giving on Wednesday

Whole Foods isn’t just worried about those poor lobsters:

Whole Foods on Veterans in Metairie is donating 2½% of all of their sales on Wednesday July 26th to the LA/SPCA. We need your help!!
1. Encourage your friends and neighbors to do their weekly shopping on Wednesday and support the LA/SPCA.
2. We will have an information table but need people to man it. The store is open from 8 AM to 9PM. If you are available to be there for any part of the day, PLEASE let me know ASAP.

Thanks!! Ana Zorrilla, Development Director

Louisiana SPCA
701 Thayer St.
New Orleans, LA 70114

    Sorry sweetie. We’ll contribute to the SPCA in some other fashion. The lyin’ corporate bastids at Whole Foods don’t get our money. They’re glad to contribute $100 to a local charity, but won’t give 25 freaking cents to a locally-owned business. This isn’t to take anything away from their local employees, who are all about buying locally. But their corporate folks prefer to put up a facade rather than deal in real dollars.

    Good luck in your effort. It’s a worthwhile cause. But, corporately, they’re more two-faced than a whore begging alms outside St. Louis Cathedral on Easter Sunday.

    Yes, I agree with you and I make my groceries at Langensteins, BUT – There are some things that only Whole Foods has and Wednesday is as good as a day as any to go get some. Like their Berry Chantilly cake. And California Club sandwich. Yum.

    BTW, Langensteins still has live lobsters.

    And it’s not like we’re buying fur coats!

    Langenstein’s. Yes. Dorignac’s. Zuppardo’s. Even Wal-Mart and Sav-A-Center are giving the local folks more of a break.

    Thanks, by the way, for the list of SPCA needs. We can certainly help with that.

    I’m not sure people are aware of the heroic story of the LA SPCA. They were one of the few good stories to come out of the flood. They evacuated over 200 pets in refrigerated trucks to Houston and then came back to town and hit the ground running. Their facility and all their membership records were destroyed.

    I’m about to make a donation to the SPCA this evening as a matter of fact: I’m donating that wolf that’s been crapping in my back yard for the last few months.

    I’m sure they could get a coat or something out of it.

    I’d rather donate to the LASPCA directly than to buy marked up goods at Whole Foods just to give the LASPCA 2.5% of the sale.
