Along with our new updated website, CARES is delighted to announce the grand opening of its brand new Gift Shop! Here are just a few of the offerings currently available, just in time for the holidays:
Show your philanthropic side with a gift of a 2011 Amazon CARES Calendar. Professionally photographed and published, this calendar is printed on high quality glossy paper in glorious, vibrant color. A great gift for co-workers, friends, and business associates, the calendar not only raises awareness of CARES and its mission, but also thrills and inspires with its breathtaking images of Iquitos, its people and its animals.
Keep a beloved infant warm in this beautiful, Peruvian-made alpaca cardigan. Off-white in color, the cardigan features brown trim at the cuffs, bottom and collar, as well as a distinctive folk art flower design on each side. Made from alpaca from Peru's mountain region, the sweater is five times warmer than wool, softer than cashmere, lightweight and hypoallergenic. Truly one of a kind, this beautiful sweater will become a treasured family heirloom, keeping generations warm and comfortable in the coldest of weather. Size 12 months.
Deck the halls (and floors) with this lush hand-loomed wool rug. Made in Chiclayo, Peru with designs representative of the Chimù Kingdom which ruled the northern coast of Peru from 900-1470 A.D., the rug is brilliantly colored with vivacious orange and accented with earth tones. The rug is 5'5"x3'9"; its generosity of scale and color are sure to bring warmth to your home for the holiday season and beyond.
Your purchase from the Amazon CARES Gift Shop not only helps to CARES' animal welfare programs in Iquitos and the greater Amazon River basin, but also aids local artisans as they continue to create traditional, handmade, one of a kind treasures.
Thank you and Happy Holidays!
