Dear CIWY Supporters,

Thank you for donating to this GlobalGiving campaign, which we created last December to support CIWY with $12,000 in 2019. You and 104 other donors raised $11,022, plus more than $1,000 in matching funds from GlobalGiving! This provided CIWY with an extra $1,000 per month to care for over 500 rescued animals at the three sanctuaries in Bolivia.

CIWY has faced some huge challenges this year, and we are quite literally in crisis mode as we look towards 2020. You are probably aware of the socio-political turmoil ensnaring Bolivia right now. The consequences of this situation have rippled through the country and threaten the continued operation of CIWY’s sanctuaries.

Food prices have increased by up to 5 times the normal cost (and we have large animal diets to sustain). Road blockades have restricted the arrival of food, supplies, and volunteers. Travel advisories have also deterred many volunteers from entering the country, bringing CIWY’s volunteer numbers to an all-time low. This means CIWY’s income is also low, just as operating costs have multiplied by 5.

Please help CIWY survive the coming months with a contribution on Giving Tuesday. We hope to raise $15,000. All donations made on December 3 will earn matching funds from GlobalGiving. It starts at Midnight ET/ 1am Bolivia/ 5am UK / 5pm Melbourne. We’ll post a reminder on facebook!

Mil gracias,

Dear Supporters,

In April we asked for help to create a new website and you came together to donate $1297, plus $253 in matching funds from GlobalGiving! The new website is coming along beautifully and we can't wait to share it with you soon. Thank you to everyone who contributed!

This month GlobalGiving is offering a different matching opportunity, for donations of $100 to $1000. The higher the donation, the higher the match. Gifts of $750 to $1000 will be matched at 50%! The match is ONE DAY ONLY: this Thursday, July 18, from 9 am to midnight (EST).

This is a great opportunity to band together with friends or family to make one larger contribution. We're raising funds for Kusiy the jaguar, who desperately needs a new enclosure. You can read his story and contribute here.

Kusiy's been through a lot in his first 4 years of life, and can sadly never return to the wild. Now an adult jaguar, he is testing the limits of his puma enclosure, which poses great risk to Ambue Ari's animals and volunteers, and to Kusiy himself. We hope to build him a large new enclosure where he can live safely and comfortably for the rest of his years.

We shudder to think of where Kuisy and all of CIWY's animals would be if it weren't for the incredible volunteers and donors who make all our work possible.

Thank you for your continued support,

Friends of Inti Wara Yassi

Great job, supporters! The year-end campaign was our most successful ever, and your donations are helping CIWY rescue and care for animals that have fallen victim to trafficking. We sincerely thank you for your generosity and compassion for wildlife.

Please stay tuned for a special appeal next month. We've fought poachers and traffickers for years, but now we're facing a new foe: hackers. The CIWY website has been hacked and corrupted, to the point where we can no longer use it. A website is essential to our operations, but we don't have extra funds to put towards a new one. We'll soon share a smaller, short-term fundraiser to take care of this urgent need.

Luckily GlobalGiving is offering a matching opportunity in April, so please consider contributing during this week-long campaign for an amplified donation.

Keep up with all of CIWY's news by following us on facebook, instagram, or twitter, and subscribing to our newsletter.

From all your furry, feathered, scaled, and human friends in Bolivia, thank you so much!
