Faced with growing protests, Hallmark stopped the promotion.
“Hallmark is promoting IVORY as a 14th wedding anniversary gift on their website and posting this blatant falsehood: “Many pieces of beautiful jewelry showcase ivory shed naturally from animals. Look online for options.” at this link:http://www.hallmark.com/anniversary/ideas/wedding-anniversary-gifts/#list14“ACTION: Please EMAIL or CALL Hallmark to educate them that ALL ivory products come from slaughtered elephants and much ivory for sale is ILLEGAL ivory!
Email Hallmark at this link: http://hallmark.custhelp.com/app/ask
Phone Hallmark at this TOLL-FREE number: 1-800-HALLMARK (1-800-425-5627)
Post on Hallmark‘s FB page at this link:https://www.facebook.com/HALLMARKPost or Email these three paragraphs:”Your website has ivory listed as the 14th wedding anniversary gift, an outdated and today often ILLEGAL item. Furthermore, Hallmark is spreading the blatant falsehood that ivory jewelry comes from ivory that is “shed naturally from animals”. No, Hallmark, elephants’ tusks do not fall out naturally! Elephants are brutally poached for their tusks with poisoned arrows or gunned down in cold blood to make ivory jewelry. Elephants’ tusks extend deep into their skulls and their faces are hacked off, often while they’re still alive, to remove the entire tusk.

“ALL ivory is blood ivory. An elephant is poached for its ivory every 15 minutes; that’s 96 elephants that are killed daily. Between 35,000-52,000 elephants are killed each year for ivory, and unless all ivory trade is banned worldwide, elephants will be extinct in the wild in 10 years or less.

“Your irresponsible website post supports this killing and justifies the illegal slaughter of this highly intelligent, self-aware and emotionally sentient keystone species for trinkets! Please find an alternative listing for a 14th wedding anniversary gift and immediately remove the inaccurate, misleading sentence: “Many pieces of beautiful jewelry showcase ivory shed naturally from animals. Look online for options.” Stop supporting and promoting the slaughter of elephants for ivory jewelry!

“Ignorance lives right next door. Please share.This is a good thing for people to learn.”
