The Poppy Campaign.

Re: protesting the annual Poppy Campaign
The RCL does not sell Poppies it rather asks for donations. For the last 2 years I have worn a Poppy as a sign of respect and Remembrance and kindly explain to the Legion member as I take one from their box that I will not be making a donation because I do not agree with how the RCL allocates the Poppy Funds. I also tell them that I will be donating to the Veterans’ program of my choice. If we all did this, then 2 things would happen, Dominion Command would take notice and the Veterans’ programs of our choice would financially benefit.

This is a great idea Cathy, unfortunately it will only be successful if the whole population were aware and did the same thing. That is unlikely and while some one us can make it an issue, I fear Dominion will still receive the lions from the donations. However,having said that we should be positive, every little bit helps. Whatever we can do to get Dominions attention is a good thing.

God Bless and keep reading
