Help me raise $1000 for cheetahs

Every donation made this month is being matched by CCF until the end of August. I've sold 2 cheetah cuffs, so that's $300. Please help me make it $1000 by the end of the month. The race is on!

The cheetah cuff has now been sold but I will be making more to order and continuing to donate 50% to CCF.

Cheetah cuff for CCF

The Cheetah Conservation Fund do fabulous work in Namibia and Kenya, working to conserve and protect these beautiful, endangered cats. They have implemented a livestock guarding dog programme so that farmers can use specially trained dogs to protect their flocks from predation by cheetahs, and therefore protect the cheetahs from being trapped or shot. This project is particularly interesting to me because my Master's thesis is about a similar livestock guarding dog programme in Slovakia, this time protecting flocks from wolves, bears and lynx.

I will be donating 50% of the proceeds from the sale of this cuff to this organisation. I have personally met the founder, Dr Laurie Marker on a couple of occasions, so feel very close to this organisation. They do fantastic work. Please support them!
