Feel like you are not getting anyone to take you seriously at the bank/cell phone company/elected officials/school district/major retailer or all of the above? Follow these simple steps to let everyone in the organization know exactly what is happening. My only advice is to not threaten, swear, or demand. I think that this sort of tactic worked pretty well when the Susan G. Komen Foundation pulled their funding to Planned Parenthood: lots of emails from lots of people have power [speaking of, their big fundraiser is coming up in Seattle, I need to email them and let them know I made a donation to Planned Parenthood instead]. It is pretty easy to feel invisible and powerless when it comes to dealing with large organizations. I hope it does not happen to you, but if it does, I hope the Email Carpet Bomb helps (or at least makes you feel better).
