It is rare to see human rights causes that have an appreciation for animal rights; and rare to see an animal rights cause with an appreciation for human rights. Chilis on Wheels bridges these two, often mutually exclusive issues, in a positive and proactive way. Michelle is an ambitious, smart and passionate leader who can do a lot with a little. Securing a larger budget would allow this project to grow exponentially in a very short period of time.
