Amazon challenged to donate profits from Vick's book to animal welfare charities.
Amazon CEO Jeffrey P Bezos is challenged to donate profits made from convicted felon Michael Vick's upcoming book to animal welfare charities.

"It's time corporations stopped making profits from the past misdeeds of footballer and felon Michael Vick." Says Sanderson. "Vick was convicted on a plea bargain for bankrolling a dog fighting ring. Dog fighting is far more than the sadistic sport of pitting to dogs to fight sometimes to the death. It's about inhumane treatment of dogs from their birth through their death."

According to Sanderson, "It's proven there is a relationship between inhumane treatment of animals and interpersonal violence. It's time we stopped making excuses for people who abuse animals and rewarding them with money."
Vick's book is slated for release in September. His promoters are banking on the fact his tarnished brand is so hot they can charge $99.95 for 7,777 autographed special edition books. The price for a regular edition of his book is $24.95.
