Target: Owners of Carivintas Winery
Goal: Commend Carivintas Winery for raising money for animals in need and for fostering a world that values the well being of dogs
A historically charitable winery has been giving profits to animals in need, creating an important alliance between two seemingly unrelated entities. Sign the petition to applaud these efforts.
The word “carivintas” comes from the combination two words. “Caritas” means “charity” in Latin, while “vin” means “wine” in French. Thus, “carivinitas” means “charitable wine,” or as the winery prefers to say, “blending with philanthropy.” Each bottle of wine produced by the Carivintas Winery features a picture of an animal that needs to be adopted or that needs other forms of assistance (such as medical attention). A portion of the proceeds for each sale of wine then goes to benefit those animals. Looking at the bottle’s label allows the wine drinker to connect with another being that needs help.
There is a lot of beauty in the message of this winery. Wine itself is a pure indulgence. It is not necessary for our diet and is something that we consume for pure delight. To counter-pose wine’s hedonistic nature, this winery keeps its visitors in tune with the needs of those less fortunate than they. Additionally, the winery also warmly welcomes dogs, which most wineries do not. The result is that dog owners, rather than having to leave their pets behind at home, can take them along.
More innovative efforts such as this one must be made in order to create positive change for animals in need. By signing the petition below you will be standing in solidarity with the Carivintas Winery as activists for animal rights.
Dear Management of Carivintas Winery:
When people buy wine, they are giving a gift to themselves. But, there is also a way for them to give a gift that helps dogs in need. Carivinitas Winery has found a way to do this in a very beautiful way. By creating wine labels that feature dogs that need to be adopted or assisted in some way, wine drinkers are reminded of the small difference that they can make. When they buy wine from Carivinatas, they can feel good knowing that a portion of the proceeds will help animals in need.
It is rare to see a winery so bravely weave its philanthropic purpose into its identity. While many wineries do have a social consciousness, you take it to a higher level by not simply participating in causes, but by becoming them. Every bottle that is poured reminds the drinkers of how many dogs in the world need help and care. Hopefully other wineries, companies, and activists will recognize the benefit that is to be gained by integrating the desire for social change into a business structure.
