I recently wrote to Hatem Yavuz regarding his business and the fur industry. I was pleasantly surprised when he didn't ignore me or tell me where to go.  I suppose it's possible he had one if his cronies respond to my e-mail, but it didn't feel like that. In the end, is it possible that a kind word could change the mindset of another? We can only hope.  The following is the e-mail thread between myself and Mr. Yavuz. 

-------------------------------------------------

Dear Mr. Yavuz:

Your company is clearly worth a large fortune, so instead of dealing with the tarnished mark on the fur industry, why not consider investing in environmentally friendly, man made products. There is a huge demand for this, so much money to be made and you would be a world hero in the clothing industry. You have the money, power and intelligence to do this. Maybe it's time for a change. 

Thank you for your consideration.

Thank u Leslie. Message is clear.  Someone or somehow this company can be bought out. Too many mouths are fed here. Too much invested. 

We cant just walk away like that. 

Thanks for your concern. Much appreciated.

Perhaps it could be a gradual change to your company so mouths continue to be fed. Something to consider. 

In any case, thank you for your kind response and not telling me to f-off.

Mature questions requires mature answers. I personally appreciate your concern. 

Happy 2015. Stay well!

Hatem Yavuz
