Shannon Coulter, a marketing professional from the San Francisco Bay Area and founder/CEO of DoubleKnown Communications, has started a boycott, #GrabYourWallet, to get retailers to dump their Ivanka and other Trump merchandise.

Shoes.com, a Canadian online retailer, is the first to “dump Trump” in the #GrabYourWallet boycott.

boycott Shoes.com!

#GrabYourWallet has a spreadsheet of “Companies to Boycott” — businesses that presently carry the Ivanka or other Trump labels. The boycott campaign even coaches its hate-filled followers to send this message to a business:

“Hi. I’m a customer / fan of your brand. Unfortunately I’ll no longer be able to shop there because you do business with the Trump family. If you were to no longer do so I would consider returning as a customer. Please communicate my feedback to store management. Here’s what I said to a rep who said ‘Well, we don’t carry Donald’s products’: Because Ivanka campaigned passionately for Donald and now has an official role on his presidential transition team, I feel her brand has now been politicized.”

We can turn the same spreadsheet into businesses for us to support.

Send them this email:

“Dear _______(name of company):

I’m a longtime customer of _______ (name of company). I especially like the Ivanka (Trump) label. I want you to know that I will continue to shop at ______ (name of company) so long as you continue to carry Trump merchandise. However, if you accede to the vicious #GrabYourWallet campaign, you should know that I will NEVER set foot in your store again.

Sincerely,

_______ (Your name)”

“The open embrace of racism by the Republican Party in this election is now unleashing a wave of ugliness unseen in this country for decades . . .  you just voted for an openly racist candidate for the presidency of the United States of America . . . .
