Fighting for your consumer rights
About two months ago, I sent a letter to General Electric and to Canadian Tire complaining about false advertising on the packaging of their GE Nighthawk Bulbs. Canadian Tire sent me an apology letter along with $15 Canadian Tire Money within a couple of weeks. I had started to lose hope about hearing from General Electric when just a couple of days ago I received a package from them.
Inside was six sets of GE Nighthawk halogen lights along with an additional GE Nighthawk headlamp:
This was definitely more than I was expecting. These sell for almost $50 each! The best part is, it looks like they fixed the false advertising problem as well. The “% brighter light” on the back of the packaging now matches the front:
You may be asking yourself: “Dollar Defender, what are you going to do with all these lights?”. Great question!
In May, I will be going to Parramos, Guatemala with a small team to build homes for a few needy families as well as build an extension to the local school. My team will be running a silent auction to raise money to be able to build more homes as well as raising money for food distribution while down there. I will therefore be auctioning off these lights to help raise funds! Click here to find out all about the humanitarian effort in Guatemala.
