THE plight of Syrian families forced to leave their homes has persuaded a man to opt out of further emails.
Tom Logan, from Nottingham, ended his involvement with e-petition site LifeAid after receiving a third message in two weeks about desperate refugees.
Logan said: “I signed up to LifeAid to protest about the closure of a donkey sanctuary near Taunton. Now it’s all Isis and Boko Haram.
“Normally I delete those emails and move on. But something about this one made me sit up and decide to do something. I’m now fully unsubscribed.”
The 27 year-old explained how he found the unsubscribe link underneath the some stuff about a nine year-old Syrian boy who has to read the back of empty cereal cartons because his parents can no longer afford books.
He said: “All I had to do was confirm my email address and now I won’t be bothered by all this ghastliness. Unsubscribing is a small gesture that can make a huge difference. I’d recommend it to anyone.”
Logan has also considered unsubscribing from other mailing lists, but decided that would be an insult to the nice people at Innocent smoothies.
