giveBIG 2015 is over – and what a day it was for snow leopards!
It all began with a challenge:
The Seattle Foundation had pledged to match the first $5,000 in giveBIG donations if we managed to raise that much in one day. In less than 7 hours, you helped us meet this challenge and land this amazing gift for these endangered cats!
Around noon, we reached another milestone: $10,000!
Shortly after that, the Seattle Foundation informed us that we had also won a “Platinum Global Ticket”, randomly awarded to a handful of organizations participating in the giveBIG event, worth another $5,000!
Building on this momentum, we managed to raise another $8,000 to help protect the “Ghost of the Mountain” before the day was over!
With donations, the match and the Platinum Global Ticket, our total tally for the day is $28.135!
Here’s our total for the day (11:59 pmPST):
The money we raised on giveBIG will be used to fund conservation programs that help snow leopard moms raise their newborn cubs safely.
Thank you very much to everyone who donated!
