In April 2003 American Eagle Outfitters in USA introduced following Sandals as one of their summer products. This company operates about 750 American Eagle stores in the US and Canada. 
On 27 April, 2003 IndiaCause launched an informal protest (which was not yet conveyed to our members). We also communicated our disappointment with the Management and expected their response before we launched a formal protest.

On 29 April, 2003 American Eagle Management responded positively to our protest and faxed their letter confirming "Please accept this letter as our formal apology for our use of the image resembling the Lord Ganesh on this product". In his letter
Neil Bulman, Jr. (Vice President and General Counsel, AE) assured "we will remove these flip-flop shoes from our stores".... (letter below)

We assume hundreds of visitors would have sent their protest to AE Management using our site.

Thank you
Team @ IndiaCause
