This means so much. To give …
This means so much.
To give these cats a chance at a new home and a new way of living is such an incredible gift. For many, the transition is going to be epic, as they may have never left the facility before. We were just reflecting on how they will have to relearn everything--from where to find water to where they use the restroom!
But it will be worth it! To see them in large new enclosures--to give them the chance to share a message about natural beauty and our role as people in it--it is a gift beyond words! And it's a gift that you are helping us reach!
The Holiday Challenge is coming to an end this Tuesday, and it's been an amazing run...but the CFAR Challenge continues as we work together to raise the final funds necessary to make this happen!
This is the year! And this group will help us get there! Share the message with your friends, family, and others, and let's build this together!
Thank you for your continued support of this worthy mission.

Did you know that when the weather gets cooler, the cats get frisky? It's kind of neat, watching them bounce around like excited cubs due to a little chill in the air. Here's hoping the holiday season brings you joy and blessings as you have shared your blessings with Central Florida Animal Reserve.

The Holiday Challenge contest is still ongoing, and you've helped us make a big impact so far. Over 1000 organizations around the country are involved you know--but there's news!

This week's challenge is less about the amount donated and more about the number of people who donate. So that means that right now, this is a prime time to talk friends and family into giving to CFAR. If everyone on our list here gives $10, then our donation count can go way up to put us in line for $10,000 as the organization with the most donations in a week!

How about it? Can you find just ONE extra person who might be willing to help such magnificent cats?

Giving Tuesday was amazing! CFAR Raised over $24,000 by the time the night was out. If you have given already, thanks for helping make this a reality!
For all reading, we know we're going to need a push to make the 12pm decision time, so we need as many donations as possible BEFORE 12pm EST in order to eke out the win for this week's $10,000 challenge!
And to make things more interesting, your donation going to be matched dollar for dollar for every donation up to $10,000. If we win, then it's like having another matching donation too! It's a DOUBLE MATCH Donation!
So whatever you can do to help us raise that additional $10,000 before 12pm today would be truly epic!
Stay tuned to the standings at http://www.crowdrise.com/GivingTowerHolidayChallenge and let's go CFAR!

You're receiving this messag…
You're receiving this message because at some point in the past, you donated to Central Florida Animal Reserve during the RYOT Challenge of 2013. That contest, with your support, allowed CFAR to raise over $166,000 in 5 short weeks--an incredible feat!

That money has not gone to waste, in fact, you can see the magnificent new facility being built right now at www.cflar.org. In fact, construction is moving at a breakneck pace...if we can stay on track, we are scheduled to be there by March 2015!

Everyone dug deep to make that victory a reality, and we're coming to you again because we're participating in the Holiday Challenge! With over $250,000 in prizes at stake, a win here will keep our momentum moving forward on this new facility dream.

Please consider helping CFAR on this GivingTuesday and throughout the Holiday Challenge by showing your monetary support to the big cats and The MOVE Campaign! Visit http://www.crowdrise.com/CFLARHoliday to donate, or anywhere on the cflar.org website.

Seasons greetings, let's go CFAR!

I know that you're still basking in the warm glow of having just given a donation, but I need to remind you that you've just done something incredible!
In a few months, that donation is going to turn into a physical home for all the big cats of CFAR, and you have helped make it happen! Every bit is a big step forward toward our goal of a long-term, sustainable home for our residents.
Thank you for your support!

The contest isn't over though...now's the time to grab a friend and give them the chance to feel the same joy you feel! Let's go, CFAR!

You're doing it. You're helping build a future for the over 40 big cats at CFAR--that's got to feel pretty good.

Thanks for joining us on the journey. Today, at 5:00pm, the STARTARYOT contest will end. It's be great if you can get your friends and family to help--the extra will go a long way and maybe even be THE difference in a contest as close as this one.

But I'll let you in on a little secret we've learned about big cats--it's all about relationships. And relationships grow and deepen over time. For some this is the start of a new association--for others, this is representative of a long-term bond. No matter where you are in the process, we're honored to be your guides and ambassadors as you engage the amazing world of big cats.

Thanks for being part of this effort, and we hope to hear from you again soon. But for now, let's combine our voices and push this contest along. You've helped start this RYOT--let's finish it!

I wanted to take a moment to personally thank each and every person who has made a donation to Central Florida Animal Reserve during this STARTARYOT Challenge. This is the first time that we've ever participated in a contest like this, and we've had an amazing outpouring of support.

You know, there was a time when CFAR couldn't even dream of being able to do something like this. We've come a long way since we reincorporated in 2007. Over that time we've faced the challenges of raising and caring for big cats through an amazing saga. We've struggled against the elements (think of every bad storm you've seen in the last 6 years--now imagine that storm against the backdrop of keeping tigers safe!). We've weathered gut wrenching losses as cats have aged and passed away. All of this in the shadow of one of the most challenging economic times in history.

Our progress has been slow at times, but we take strength from the resilience of our resident cats--and the dedication of our volunteers and donors. Our focus has never been clearer--guided by our founding motto: Compassion, Conservation, and Commitment.

You are receiving this message because you've already given to us in this RYOT challenge, and I want to thank you for that. But we are not done yet. The contest is entering its final week, and we have a plan to make sure that CFAR ends up at the top of the so we can take a share of the over $200,000 in prizes available.

But this only works with your help.

You've donated already--I get that. Whether it was $10 or $1000, each person has stepped up and shown that they are willing to do what it takes to give these cats a home. But if there's a chance that you could give again, it will make all the difference in these final contest days. If you know someone who has been interested but hasn't had a reason to give--now is the time! Funds are the only part that matters, the number of people does too--and we need less than 30 donors to qualify for the big prize!

We are all on the ground floor of something special that will bring big cats into our world in amazing and powerful ways. You've already done your part once, and now I plead with you to do it again if you can.

We are building CFAR's future, together!
