BENEFITING: AMAZON CARES - Ceased Operation
ORGANIZER: AMAZON CARES - Ceased Operation
EVENT: CrowdRise Holiday Challenge
EVENT DATE: Jan 15, 2016
My name is Molly Mednikow, and in 2004 I moved to the Peruvian Amazon to help street dogs and cats that had nobody to care for them. As Amazon Community Animal Rescue, Education & Safety approaches our 10 year anniversary, I am choosing to celebrate this event by donating in honor of fellow classmates and professors and the administration at the Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer University.
Amazon CARES is the first, and only, domestic animal charity in Peru's Amazon River Basin. We provide free and low-cost veterinary care to the area's dogs and cats.
This holiday season Crowdrise is hosting a Holiday Challenge! The challenge runs from now until Thursday, January 9th (11:59:59am ET). The team that raises the most during the Challenge wins a $100,000 donation for their charity!!! Second place gets $40,000, third gets $20,000, and another $40,000+ in cash prizes will be given throughout the campaign.
We are using this Holiday Challenge to celebrate an early "birthday" for Amazon CARES. 2014 will be Amazon CARES' 10th year helping dogs and cats in Peru's rainforest! To celebrate 10 years of making a difference, we're asking supporters to donate $10. With your help we will continue to help animals for another 10 years and many more!
