Thank you for being one of our amazing GlobalGiving supporters! Today, February 12, is the first GlobalGiving Bonus Day of 2014. GlobalGiving has set aside $75,000 to boost your donations. Your gift today will be matched up to $1000 per donor at 30%. For bonobos and the communities that live alongside them in the Congo, this is an incredible opportunity.

Our Bonobo Peace Forest project has inspired local communities to organize. They’ve matched our passion and commitment as they strive to preserve the world’s last bonobos, replicating our model of community-based conservation. Last month, these community leaders met with BCI and its advisors in Kinshasa to plan for existing and new reserves. Just as maintaining our Peace Forest project sends ripples through the Congo basin, your donation makes waves throughout rainforest communities.

We know you want your gift to go far, and that’s why we dedicate it to our trackers, providing them with basic equipment and salaries to support their families. Our impact on bonobo preservation grew when our local partners began to match us. Please take advantage of GlobalGiving’s matching offer today to grow your impact!

If you’ve already given today, you have our deepest gratitude. If not, you still have a chance to allocate GlobalGiving’s funding for our project by making a matched donation. As they say in the Congo—merci mingi! Thank you very much!
