My home.
Early afternoon.
My guests, husband and wife, are talking about the
new addition to their family.

They’re showing me pictures.
I look at the beautiful dog
These wonderful people saved the dog from being

They’ve been doing volunteer work for years.
And know a lot about the dire situation at the shelters.

Animal shelters are overcrowded.
More than a million dogs are killed every year.

Many people buy pets on a whim.
Especially around the holidays.

Few months later they don’t want them anymore.
And they drop them at the shelter.
Or just abandon them on the street corner.

I’m looking at my guests.

The world needs more people like them.
Driving more than 1,300 miles to rescue a dog.
Because they believe all pets deserve a decent life.
Because they believe pets are family

I feel privileged to know them.
When I grow up I want to be just like them

Be kind
A kinder world starts with YOU

Pets are family

Mariana worked on both, the east and the west coast.
Big or small, each project she worked on helped define the importance of gaining and sustaining a competitive edge in an increasingly complex business environment.

Business know-how, love of teaching and writing – all combined in 2006 to form OBI.
Its mission: to make learning fun! And easy.

Through its training, consulting, and publications OBI builds bridges of knowledge to take you from where you are to
