Rimma Rose was born in Ukraine on April 19, 1982. She moved to New York with her family at the age of sixteen. She immediately fell in love with New York, appreciating the culture, nightlife, and endless possibilities the city had to offer. A voracious reader with a passion for learning, it did not take Rimma long to adapt to her new life in US and to learn the English language, adding to her list of spoken languages that include Russian, Ukrainian, and Italian.
Growing up Rimma always enjoyed the finer things in life; fashion, cars and reading books, especially history and philosophy. Her thirst for knowledge continued into her college years. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Government and Politics from St. John’s University with a minor in History. In addition to education, Rose enjoys art, sports and traveling. Although she revels in acquired knowledge and academia, Rimma is far from being a studious introvert. She is social, active, fun-loving and a self-proclaimed fashionista.
Following her undergraduate education, Rimma Rose enrolled in a Master’s program at the St. John’s Graduate School in Rome, Italy, obtaining her Master’s degree in International Law and Diplomacy, with minor in American Government and Public Administration. Rose was enamored with Italy and returned to Europe, this time as an intern at the U.S. Consulate in Milan, Italy. Rimma finalized her educational career by adding an MBA in International Business from Peter J. Tobin School of Business in Rome, Italy to her educational accomplishments.
Rimma Rose has spent her time traveling between the US and Europe, becoming a real life jet-setter. Her love for fashion has truly been able to shine through, allowing her to attend New York and Milan fashion weeks, picking up all the latest trends while developing an impeccable sense of style. Living abroad for three and a half years, Rose was able to immerse in all the culture, history and infinitely beautiful romance offered by Italy, the eternal gem of the Western world.
After completing her schooling and traveling, Rimma taught undergraduate courses in politics of Western and Eastern Europe, Russia and International Political Economy at her Alma mater, St. John’s University. Yet, she felt unsatisfied, constantly searching for her true passion and career path. Following her brief teaching tenure, Rose began writing and researching for her debut novel, “CURSED TO SURVIVE”. As with everything in her life - education, reading, work, travel, dance or fashion – Rimma Rose became obsessed with her project. Not only did her novel’s first order sell out in a matter of days from Barnes and Noble.com, the book is also getting great reviews from the readers of all ages and educational and ethnic backgrounds proving to be an appealing read to a wide audience. Rose is now close to a completion of “CURSED TO SURVIVE”, Book II of the intended series. With such outstanding reviews “CURSED TO SURVIVE” has all the potential of becoming the next great story combining love, actual history, fashion, travel, adventure and intensely passionate relations between the novel’s characters.
The pledge is 50% of all proceeds from all sales of the book through any channels and in any format will be donated to Animal Aid USA.

Dogs on Death Row
Driven by a deep passion for animals, Jodie Richers founded Dogs on Death Row in 2007. Having worked in the nonprofit arena for many years as the director for One Child At A Time (an international aid and adoption organization), and also as a board member for Children's Charities of America, Jodie posesses a skill set ideal for leveraging dollars into the most efficient action possible to save the greatest number of dogs.

We pride ourselves on our fiscal responsibility. Our overhead is less than 1%. Jodie has also founded the "Beat the Heat" Campaign. Countless amounts of dogs and cats will be sterilized through the month long campaign that will become an annual event.
Founder South Jersey Horse Rescue, Mural Artist- Ellen has been interested in animal rights since she was young- her family always had cats from the pound and she worked in a dog kennel for many years as a teenager.
Ellen volunteered artwork for PETA.
Ellen's interest in horses began at the young age of 14 when her parents bought her first.
At the age of 42, she was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. The oncologist told Ellen to fill her year of surgeries and chemo treatments with positive things.She leased a horse named Bailey and started her lifelong love of horses all over again. Thankfully she recovered quickly and began riding in shows, bought another horse Talvi and a baby draft horse named Fidar.
Through social networking, Ellen discovered horse slaughter plants in Mexico and Canada and set out to dedicate her life to speaking for these gentle creatures. She bought a 31 acre farm in Weekstown NJ.
Due is a large part to the economy, people are not able to afford their horses anymore, and send them to auctions, not realizing that horsemeat can now be sold for $1.10 a pound. About 1200 American pet horses are slaughtered inhumanely EVERY week.
In December of 2009 Ellen founded, South Jersey All Breeds Horse Rescue and has rescued 25 horses from meat pens and from SPCA cruelty cases. The horses are rehabilitated, re-trained, if necessary and adopted out to good homes.
The rescue survives only on Ellen's income and donations, since it has cost Ellen her marriage.
"Horses are not raised to be meat animals and should not be slaughtered for human consumption."
Ellen has selflessly lent her incredible talent of mural painting to the mobile medical unit that was donated in GA. This year Ellen's incredible masterpiece, The Amazing Grace Bus, features animal lover's sponsored pets. Animal lovers from as far away as Canada have sent in their pet's pictures for Ellen to paint. For more information on Ellen's artwork please call 609-965-0274
