Fundraising for tigers!
Some of our supporters have been busy raising vital funds for TigerTime. Here are a few that made a wonderful contribution to our work to save the tiger in the wild.
Supporter Steven Wilson took part in the Dublin Marathon – a grueling 26 miles run in aid of the tiger.
Steven said that “the marathon was great fun from start to finish. At the beginning of my training I didn’t think I would make it but with support from my family and friends I made it all the way.”
Steven raised over £1000 for TigerTime, a truly amazing amount that has made such a difference in funding our vital projects in India, Thailand and Russia. Steven believes that “the tiger is one of the most majestic and truly awesome creatures on earth and knowing that once tigers could be found all over Asia and now so few remain in the wild is a terrible thought. I was lucky enough to see a wild tiger in India back in 2009 which has to be one of the best experiences of my life.”
Animal lover Audrey Anzil contacted TigerTime as she had set up a new society at the University of Essex called the Animal Protection Society who wanted to help save the wild tiger.
The society raised over £60 for TigerTime through a cake stall and selling our wristbands. They also collected signatures for our www.bantigertrade.com petition. The main objective was to raise awareness within the university about the plight of the tiger and the society did this by holding a flash mob to the song “Tiger Feet” by Mud.
Audrey stated “I’ve always found that the tiger was one of the most majestic animals on Earth and I deeply believe that its place is in the wild, not in cages. People do not necessarily know how endangered the wild tiger is, so I was glad to raise awareness using TigerTime’s informative posters and raise money to help finance their anti-poaching projects.”
TigerTime would like to send a massive THANK YOU to Steven and everyone at the Animal Protection Society for their fundraising. We all need to play our part to save the last 3,200 wild tigers and these examples show just a few ways in which this can be done.
