February’s featured charity is  Amnesty International USA.  Check out our FACEBOOK page at the beginning of each month to see how much was donated.

Amnesty International is a global movement of people fighting injustice and promoting human rights.

We work to protect people wherever justice, freedom, truth and dignity are denied. Currently the world’s largest grassroots human rights organization, we investigate and expose abuses, educate and mobilize the public, and help transform societies to create a safer, more just world. We received the Nobel Peace Prize for our life-saving work.

Learn more about our issues, campaigns, cases, victories and research in every country across the globe.
