Letter from Mike Sawyer to Montel Williams of the Montel Show
May 10, 2006

Hello Montel, 

Really appreciate your heartfelt desire to serve and help others. 

Forgive me if I have missed a program or hearing your heart on the subject of tobacco. 

Please visit Www.TobaccoTargetsBlacks.com

To be reminded how evil tobacco was and is to reach out to African Americans with its deadly product.

Georgiana a beautiful metro bus driver in Birmingham, Alabama told me as a young teen that tobacco offered her a lucrative employment package to promote their cigarettes. Incredible that her conscious and care for others prevented her from prostituting for big tobacco. 

Hope to hear your series on this grave matter.

With compassion,

Mike Sawyer
