Joey Salvati, a carpenter in New Kensington, Pennsylvania, makes
and distributes wooden devices specifically for hitting children
(see http://spare-rods.com ) Mr. Salvati claims God told him to do this. Please join the campaign to put an end to Salvati's child-beating
business! Email him at email@example.com and tell him what you think.
Here is a sample letter. Feel free to improve it.
Dear Mr. Salvati,
I am writing out of a deep concern for children who are
undoubtedly being harmed by the weapons you manufacture. For any injuries caused to those children, you surely share part of the responsibility with parents who are foolish enough and reckless enough to use your product. Please put your carpentry skills to more appropriate uses, and end your "spare-rods" business now.
And please CC your email to these people:
See www.stoptherod.net for more info.
Thank you for helping to stop this cruel business!
