A message from American Family Association today:
Let Chairman Truett Cathy know you appreciate his Christian-based company! A Christian-owned national business deserves to be recognized.
February 7, 2011
Recently, Chick-fil-A restaurant chain has been in the news for its strong support of marriages and I thought you would like to thank them for their commitment to family-friendly values.
Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy built a large restaurant chain on his "personal and business philosophy based on biblical principles."
Chick-fil-A is known for the exclusively Christian music that is played in its restaurants as well as being one of the few national businesses to close on Sunday, with no exceptions. Cathy also reflects his Christian faith philanthropically.
Mr. Cathy used his business success to first start a scholarship program, and later a retreat center both of which go by the name "WinShape" to reflect their goal of shaping/winning students, business people, and traditional marriages.
Chick-fil-A's stated corporate purpose is:
To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us.
To have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A.
The principles that Chick-fil-A is built on are obviously a strong foundation as the chain consists of over 1,500 locations in 39 states as well as Washington, D.C.
Send an email to Chick-fil-A chairman and founder Truett Cathy. Let him know you appreciate his Christian company, and his stand for family values.

Dear Mr. Cathy:
I wanted to drop you a short note to let you know how much I appreciate you and your company's commitment to Christian values.
Please know that I applaud what you do to strengthen marriages, help young people reach their potential, and give to building stronger families.
I am a fan of Chick-fil-A and look forward to visiting your restaurants soon.
Most of us are more apt to complain than to show appreciation, especially if it means having to actually do something.Â Thanking Chick-fil-A is easy.Â Just copy the email that American Family Association suggested and send it off to them at the email address shown.
