WASHINGTON, June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- American Humane Association, the organization that helped found America's original "Compassion Movement" in the 1870s, is pleased to announce that entrepreneur, music artist, fashion designer, and media icon Paris Hilton is participating in a special fundraising campaign to benefit the country's first national humane organization. Ms. Hilton has partnered with the charitable fundraising platform Prizeo, giving donors and interested parties an opportunity to win a chance to meet her on the set of a magazine photo shoot.

Recently, Ms. Hilton was honored with American Humane Association's prestigious National Humanitarian Medal at a gala in Palm Beach, Florida for her charitable work and advocacy in making the world a better place for both children and animals. Now, Ms. Hilton will join forces with the only charitable organization to work for both the protection of children and animals to raise funds needed to help the organization continue its nearly century-and-a-half mission of promoting the human-animal bond, an inextricable link between people, pets, and the world we share.

Prizeo enables celebrities and influencers to fundraise for their favorite causes through the offering of money-can't-buy prize experiences and rewards to their fans and the general public. It has worked with notables such as Will Ferrell, Samuel L. Jackson, One Direction, Kobe Bryant, Andrew Garfield, Lady Gaga, Ed Sheeran, and many, many more to help elevate their chosen cause's fundraising goal and awareness to new heights.   

"I am very happy to be involved with American Humane Association and I am excited to offer my fans this special opportunity to meet me on set of my next magazine photo shoot," said Ms. Hilton. "I feel privileged to be associated with such an amazing organization and I look forward to continuing to work with American Humane Association, and ultimately making a difference in the lives of children and animals all over the world. I encourage people everywhere to support this Prizeo campaign. Everyone can make a difference."

"I couldn't ask for a bigger supporter leading up to the 2014 American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards™ than Paris Hilton, who we proudly call a National Humanitarian Medal recipient," added Dr. Robin Ganzert, American Humane Association's President and CEO. "We know that Ms. Hilton's fans will all be clamoring at the chance to meet her at her upcoming photo shoot, and they will be happy to know that their gifts will go to support such a wonderful cause."
