Amazon CARES, a wonderful organization that was created to protect the countless stray animals that roam the streets and villages of Peru, has awarded their first Top Ten Award of 2011 to Okey’s Promise!
According to their post,
“Amazon CARES works in severly poor areas. Sadly, domestic violence is so common as to be widely ignored. We have worked with local schools, church leaders and police to teach them to recognize signs of domestic abuse. Despite initial complacence, we have helped create an awareness that animal abuse and domestic abuse go hand in hand. This fine line is more than most people care to consider.”

Founder Molly Mednikow has personally pledged her support to the project.
Thank you Amazon Cares for the award and for all the great work that you do in Peru. And thank you Molly for your pledge!
By the way, Molly’s donation tipped us up to $1000 in pledges so far! We still have a ways to go to the $5000 goal, but we are well on our way. Thanks to those who have pledged. Please keep working to get the word out so this project can come to fruition.
