American Girl's gifts to agency lead school to scrap show

Backing of lesbianism, abortion sets off storm

By TOM HEINEN
Posted: Oct. 29, 2005

A Catholic school in Waukesha County is the first non-profit group in the nation to cancel a coveted American Girl Fashion Show amid concerns that the Wisconsin-based doll company behind the show gives money to a national girls organization that presents abortion, contraception and a lesbian sexual orientation as acceptable.

News of the decision by parent volunteers and the pastor at St. Luke School in Brookfield is being reported in bulletins at Masses this weekend.

"It seemed like a match made in heaven; a motivated Catholic school and an all-American icon," Father Frank Malloy, the pastor, says in his printed explanation. "We seemed poised to raise enough funds for a new playground and a remake of the school library."

But, he concludes, "As for us, it's a bargain we'll just have to pass up. The cost is too high. Our integrity isn't for sale."

Only 60 to 65 American Girl Fashion Shows are held nationwide each year, and no other groups have canceled because of this issue, according to Julie Parks, spokeswoman of the Middleton-based company.

The fashion shows include the firm's popular historic dolls being carried by girls who resemble the dolls and dress in the same outfits.

The parish had scheduled five showings May 19 to 21 at the Country Springs Hotel in Waukesha.

Organizers had planned to mail invitations to more than 20,000 American Girl doll owners in a wide region. They had hoped to raise at least $10,000 - and perhaps $30,000 or more - through ticket and raffle sales, business sponsorships, and a percentage of sales of American Girl's dolls, books, clothes and other products, said the event's co-chairwomen, Marisa Beffel of Brookfield and Catherine Valentyn of the town of Brookfield.

Beffel, who had originally proposed the fashion show, searched the Internet for details last weekend after word of the company's donations spread. Valentyn, who did the same, said it was a clear, but not easy, decision.

"It wasn't just the money," said Valentyn, president of the home and school association. "It was hard to give up the thought of a really great day for mothers, daughters, grandmothers, and the really great products that American Girl has, these dolls with the historic texts that come with them. But it just felt wrong. We know what the Catholic Church stands for, and we, in essence, represent them."

The parish decision to forgo that and to put a $1,000 deposit with American Girl at risk is one of the latest results of a protest that two national groups - the Pro-Life Action League in Chicago and the American Family Association in Tupelo, Miss. - mounted this month against American Girl and its parent company, Mattel Inc. The league is threatening to call for a boycott of American Girl products if it does not halt the donations by Tuesday.

The spark that set them off was an "I Can" program the doll and clothing company launched Sept. 19 to encourage girls to follow their dreams and to raise money for Girls Inc.

Formerly known for decades as the Girls Clubs of America, Girls Inc. has more than 1,500 centers across the country. Most serve minorities in low-income neighborhoods.

On its Web site and at the centers, it offers a wide range of programs, resources and advocacy positions to help educate and encourage girls in everything from science and athletics to health and sexuality. That includes support of abortion and contraception along with sexual abstinence as acceptable choices for girls. It also includes affirmation of lesbian sexual orientations.

Joyce M. Roché, president and chief executive officer of Girls Inc., was traveling and not available for comment.

American Girl is encouraging girls to sign an "I Can" pledge and to spend $1 for a band that features the firm's signature, berry-colored star and can be used as a wristband, a ponytail holder, a zipper pull, or for other purposes. The pledge is a promise to "be myself," "always do my best," "reach for the stars," "lend a hand to others" and "to try."

Saying Girls Inc. "has helped millions of girls realize their potential," American Girl is donating $50,000, plus 70 cents from each band sale to support Girls Inc. educational programs.

American Girl is holding to its statement that Girls Inc. is one of hundreds of non-profit organizations the firm supports, and that the Girls Inc. donations support three programs that have not been criticized.

"We are profoundly disappointed that certain groups have chosen to misconstrue American Girl's purely altruistic efforts and turn them into a broader political statement on issues that we, as a corporation, have no position," the statement says. "The American Girl brand exemplifies the values of wholesomeness and responsibility that we would expect any organization to commend."

That did not appease Valentyn and Beffel, who thought that some of the content on the Girls Inc. Web site was politicized, inappropriate for girls 12 and younger, and contrary to Catholic teachings.

"I think a lot of moms feel betrayed by the company," Beffel said.

The school hopes to raise $10,000 to $30,000. An internet campaign to donate a few bucks seems to be in order:


"Organizers had planned to mail invitations to more than 20,000 American Girl doll owners in a wide region.

Good for them. I wish more Catholics, including Catholic politicians, would actually be taught, believe and stand up for what the Church teaches, rather than work for the opposite.

OK -- now the contact info is posted. Freepers, we need to write letters of support to this parish. And they were going to use the money for a playground. I think I will send them a donation, too. Courageous integrity is an uncommon virtue, and they sacrificed a lot to stand by their principles. Very cool.

Subject Line: Girls Inc. support and ultimate loss of business

Dear Mr. or Mz xxx,

How did your company make such a gross business miscalculation? I’m sure you’ll stand your ground and make public statements to the effect it has not had a negative impact on your business. But it will. You know it will take some time to show up in your bottom line.

Actually I’d like to thank you for your side by side stand with Girls Inc. It has allowed me to reopen a dialogue with my three daughters. Each daughter has several of your dolls.

They have all three decided to ceremoniously throw them away. Not sell, them … not give them away … but to destroy them.

Here are the demographics.

Daughter #1 – Honor student (freshman) at xxx University studying to be an elementary teacher.
Daughter #2 – National Merit Scholar and a senior in High School. Being courted by Ivy League Universities.
Daughter #3 – Freshman in high school and right on their heels academically.

They all three find your monetary and public support of abortion and lesbian sexual orientation as unacceptable. They feel you are now directly responsible for great harm to females in general.

Enough said. Look for your products in trash cans throughout the United States and elsewhere. What an INCREDIBLE blunder on your part. Whoever made this marketing decision needs to be canned. Your company will suffer because of it.

My name
My City, My State

Good for Father Malloy. Well said.

BTW, yesterday was our daughter's 10th birthday. On previous birthdays, we had given her gifts from AG. Not this year.

And Christmas isn't looking very likely, either.

Right. And just putting a LITTLE incense on the Emperor's altar won't do any harm ...

I'm sending them a donation right away and commend them for taking a stand, and I hope all the mothers take the opportunity to talk with their daughters about why this event was cancelled and suggest that they get together and find another way to raise that money and bond with their daughters and grand-daughters.

Good news on this thread, with lots of contact info for those who want to support those who done good and criticize those who done bad.

Those who done good need our support!

American Girls presents itself (from what I've seen at friends' houses quite some time ago) as a wholesome, traditional values type of company. The fact that it supports an organzation promoting abortion, contraception and lesbian sex for teenagers needs to be publicized!

Abstinence funding was already slated to increase by $20 million in FY 2002, which is $10 million more than the President requested. In a report released in June, the U.S. Surgeon General found insufficient evidence that "abstinence until marriage" works.

Girls Inc. opposed this amendment.

American Girl is holding to its statement that.... and that the Girls Inc. donations support three programs that have not been criticized.

As I recall the KKK sponsored a highway cleanup program in Georgia a few years ago. Would AG donate money to the KKK and then take umbrage at the outcry because the money was to be used just for road beautification? Same difference.

Do you know where Girl Scouts is nowadays? Equally sad/bad.

Maybe there'll be a "Baby Bits" playset for future abortionists this year, with a real working vacuum pump. Little girls like the one in the picture could wish for one this Christmas.

Pro-Life News: October 31, 2005
'American Girl' Fundraiser Cancelled
In a press release today, Pro-Life Wisconsin commended St. Luke Catholic Parish in Brookfield, WI for cancelling an upcoming ‘American Girl’ fundraiser that featured the company’s dolls and clothing.

American Girl has come under increased public pressure from Christians and others concerned about moral issues after it decided to fund Girls, Inc., an organization that promotes legalized abortion and contraception.


“America is beginning to wake up,” said Peggy Hamill, Pro-Life Wisconsin State Director. “The pro-abortion, pro-contraception juggernaut has long been fueled by backroom deals and corporate contributions just like the partnership between American Girl and Girls, Inc."

Father Malloy published a written statement in St. Luke’s Parish Bulletin explaining that though the parish will lose an opportunity to raise funds for their parochial school, they cannot afford to compromise their ethics. “Everyone competes for fundraising dollars, but the pursuit of funds can’t come at the cost of our integrity,” wrote Fr. Malloy. “We are a Catholic School and we do have core values of faith and tradition. These we pass on to our young people – it’s why we have a school.”

According to Pro-Life Wisconsin, Father Malloy and his parishioners have set an excellent example of placing principle over profit. The parish sacrificed possibly thousands of dollars to take a stand for life. Such courage will most likely not, however, go unrewarded. “It would only take a few people who decide not to purchase an American Girl doll, and instead send their money to St. Luke for the parish to recoup their losses,” said Hamill.

“Fr. Malloy certainly isn’t alone,” added Hamill. “Pro-Life Wisconsin has heard from supporters like Fr. Malloy from across the state. Parents who have purchased American Girl dolls in the past are saying they feel betrayed and are even asking us about American Girl’s return policy. It’s obvious that the parishioners at St. Luke represent only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to those who are angry at American Girl and their affiliation with Girls, Inc.”
