Dear <<First Name>>
If you're thinking of making a donation to CCF this Christmas now is the ideal time as your gift will be match funded, thanks to generous CCF supporters in the USA! Our Founder, Dr Laurie Marker has written the following letter to all our cheetah friends:
"Once again, a group of loyal CCF supporters has generously committed to matching your donation. During our 2017 Year-End Campaign, “Home Range for the Holidays,” our CCF Challengers will match your donation dollar-for-dollar, up to $275,000. This is our most critical fundraising effort of the year. Please make a generous gift to CCF before midnight December 31 so we can continue our mission to save this amazing species in 2018.
"Over the past three decades, we’ve helped the cheetah population of Namibia rebound and stabilise, and now our country has more spotted big cats than any other nation. Because of our impact — made possible by your support — Namibia has earned the nickname, “Cheetah Capital of the World.” By contributing today, you can help us continue our highly successful programs in Namibia, and at the same time, extend our reach across borders to benefit cheetahs in other African nations. Together, we are the best hope to save this species from extinction.
"Working to save the cheetah is challenging, and with greater resources, CCF can expand our programs throughout the cheetah’s African range. But our ability to succeed depends on you. Without your support, CCF’s research, education and conservation programs cannot move forward, and we cannot help the cheetah outrun extinction."
On behalf of everyone at CCF, thank you for all your help throughout this year and have a very happy holiday season!
Dr Laurie Marker, Founder and Executive Director - Cheetah Conservation Fund
