Hiya Gorgeous!

Special Note: This 48 Hour Flash Sale Fundraiser has ended. With your help, we were able to raise a grand total of $91,925 to support The Sato Project.

If you’re on my mailing list, or if you follow me on social media, you know that I use my platform and voice for animals, as well as people. I love to tempt you with adorable adoptable pets or encourage you to spread kindness to all beings.

I want to introduce you to one of my heroes—she’s the reason behind this compassionate idea. This woman inspires me so frickin’ much. She makes me want to step up and do more for animals and that’s exactly what we’re going to do today!

Without further ado, meet the incredible, Chrissy Beckles and The Sato Project…

Chrissy Beckles is a champion Amateur Boxer who uses her earnings to make a difference for dogs in Puerto Rico. (Badass!) When Chrissy first visited Puerto Rico, she was horrified by the “Dead Dog Beach”—a place where hundreds of stray dogs are dumped and left to perish.

Chrissy saw firsthand how these animals were abused, neglected, abandoned, and starving. Many of the dogs were seriously ill. Others seemed to be family pets who were just left behind. Countless dogs roaming the area with nothing to eat, nowhere to go and no one to love them.

So Chrissy decided to take action. (BADASS!) She founded The Sato Project, a nonprofit which is dedicated to rescuing these abandoned and abused beings. Sato is a Puerto Rican slang term for street dog. Since 2011, Chrissy and her team have rescued over 1,600 dogs and found them loving homes. The dogs are rehabilitated and then flown to the U.S on “freedom flights.”

I was planning on raising money for Chrissy and The Sato Project next year, but in the wake of Hurricane Irma—and Hurricane Maria a category 4 storm!—countless hounds are in urgent crisis. We were in touch with Jen, their Communications Coordinator, and here’s what she had to say:

“The storm made a direct hit in Yabucoa this morning, which has literally been the focus of our efforts for the past six years. The beach we have worked so hard to change from ‘Dead Dog Beach’ to something better is bearing the brunt of the storm surge and 155 mph winds, and we fear the worst for the small group of feral dogs there who have eluded our rescue attempts. It is going to be devastating. We have lost contact now with our staff and volunteers in that area so we are anxiously waiting to hear from them to be sure everyone is safe. The island, like many others, is still reeling from the last storm. So the funds are definitely much needed at this time, as we are having to mobilize in this emergency situation to protect the dogs we have been helping since Irma and move them to safety, and will be trying to get dogs off the island after the storm to complete their vetting in the US since the vet clinics are likely to be incapacitated. We’re very grateful for your support!”

My heart is telling me…it’s time to help some satos and I could really use your help!

    Thank you so much for organizing this fundraiser! My husband was asked if we would relocate to Puerto Rico a month ago and we are just waiting to see how soon we can move down there after these hurricanes. In researching PR I wanted to get involved with an animal charity and discovered Sato…..amazing and wonderful!!! I have already been looking into bringing animals into Canada that need homes……we already help with greyhound rescue. God bless Kris! I’m sending this email out to all my friends and family.!!

  6. Maria Petulla says:

    KRIS I’m deciding between a smaller donation or the meditation album. This is awesome that all proceeds go directly to The Sato Project – and that you are giving up your income for these needy animals. So So So Sato Awesome! I’m a professional fundraiser and non-profit and foundation consultant. It’s incredible that Sato has your support and that you reach out to your wide network! Amazing Kris. Amazing.
