Today is #GivingTuesday! Can our cats count on you to help us raise $64,000?
#1 — Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have teamed up to match $2 million of donations raised on Facebook on #GivingTuesday for U.S. nonprofits. So YOUR DONATION WILL GO TWICE AS FAR to feed our cats as long as those matching funds are available! Afton will be going live on Facebook this morning at the top of each hour starting at 8:00 AM ET through at least noon. She may go live even more frequently if lots of you want to participate and donate! All you need to do is donate to Big Cat Rescue on our Facebook page using the DONATE button during or after the live feeds.
#2 — We have set up http://bigcatrescue.org/give to accept your #GivingTuesday donations to feed our cats throughout the 24 hours of #GivingTuesday.
This year we will use your much-appreciated #GivingTuesday donations to help feed our 60+ cats. Our annual food bill is $200,000 – more than $16,000 each month!
We feed our cats the highest quality, most nutritious meat we can buy in order to keep them healthy and happy. Our goal this year is to raise $64,000 on #GivingTuesday — this will feed every mouth at the sanctuary for FOUR MONTHS!!
THANK YOU for helping us feed our precious cats!

Can YOU write product descriptions? Carole needs some ad copy written for our Amazon items. Having better item descriptions that use more keywords will help us sell more items when means more help to care for the cats. Here is our store link. http://bigcatrescue.org/amazonstore Take a look at the descriptions of the items (other than shirts) to see if you can write better descriptions. If you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include you descriptions and the link of the item the description is for.
Kali Tiger says, “The best part of breakfast is the part that gets stuck between your toes!!”
