Help relocate zebra to forever homes.

Dear Friends,

We would like to update you, on the latest news about our Project. Firstly, however, a very big thanks once again for all the support you have given us!

The most exciting news is that we have been nominated to now appear on GlobalGiving as a Permanent Partner. This was unexpected as we had not achieved the required number of donations, but we were informed that the invitation to do fundraising as a permanent partner was due to the impression we made by our organization’s hard work and determination.

Our fundraising for the zebra relocation, therefore, continued on GlobalGiving, and we received further sponsorship that we greatly appreciate.

To date we have raised $782 (R 11 758.62 at the current exchange rate) It is not yet the full amount needed but we are making plans to relocate at least some of the zebra so far. The funds raised will be transferred to us from GlobalGiving at the end of October 2019.

We will keep you updated.

Heartfelt thanks once again.

Kind regards

Janet Cuthbertson and our Team.

Dear Friends,

With just 2 days till the end of our project, we would like to update you regarding our progress. Without your support,  we would never have come as far as we have. Thank you! 

The exciting news is that we have now reached $582.00. Although we have not yet been able to meet our full target, the ongoing support we have received, once again shows that others like you, share our compassion and concern for the plight of our wildlife and zebra.

Our GlobalGiving points have now increased to 31 for our efforts towards effectiveness and good communication in the project. 

Back home at our Wildlife Sanctuary, our darling zebra, Stripy and Tammy continue to visit us each day from the wild where they are free to enjoy the plains and bush. This morning when I treated them each to a few apples, I told them that they are about to meet some new forever friends and we like to believe that they have understood us!  

Please continue to support them by sharing once again to those in your own outreach. We wish to draw your attention that donations made by eligible donors in the United States can be claimed as tax-deductible contributions on USA tax returns. 

We have found that sharing a private Facebook message to friends has been the best way to encourage awareness directly to those who we feel are compassionate about wildlife and who may wish to support the Zebra as you have. Perhaps you could try to share our project or remind a few of those in your network in this way.

Although we have just 2 DAYS left for the GlobalGiving Project, we are sure there are still many that would wish to help, should they be made aware. Thank you once again for your wonderful encouragement and support.

Kind regards

Janet Cuthbertson and our Suni-Ridge Team

Help relocate 10 zebra in South Africa - Suni-Ridge Environmental Rehabilitation Centre

Dear Friends, 

Firstly let us once again convey our heartfelt thanks for your support! 

The outreach has been a fantastic learning curve and we have generated a healthy interest in the plight of our wildlife and especially zebra. 

We are excited to have already earned 24 points in the Global Giving platform of effectiveness and engagement that now qualifies us to "leadership" status.

To date, we have managed to raise $140. We have a long way to go but we are encouraged by many that have committed to donating to the project although they still have to do so. Our guess is that people are very busy and it may take a reminder or two to encourage them to get down to doing the online payment to Global Giving for our project!

Please continue to support us by sharing once again to those in your own outreach.  Should anyone feel inclined there is also an option to start your own small fundraiser for us. The details about this is at the bottom of our page on Global Giving.
