I wasn't sure if this fit on the Vick thread or not, so I put it here...
I read something about this organization started by Chris Cooley from the Redskins to
"Helping Charities That Teach Kids To Value & Respect Animals", in particular two DC area humane education programs (right now, it is all DC area athletes involved).
I think it is nice for athletes to take a stand and sign on to try to PREVENT animal cruelty. According to the website, http://www.athletesforanimals.com/, you enter a free drawing for autographed schwag from the athletes, and for every entry the sponsoring companies donate $1 to the humane education programs.
Thought it'd be good to post some GOOD news to this thread.
Disclaimer: I don't know anything particular about the charities, so maybe someone will disagree with me. If you need to move this post, feel free.
