Last month, non-profit organization R.O.A.R. (Respect Our Animals’ Rights) has raised $550.
Inspired by the death of Cecil the Lion, our original intent was to raise money to make July 1 (the date of Cecil’s murder) a National Save the Lions Day. However, after it was pointed out that there was already a World Lion Day, R.O.A.R. decided to divide the money earned to date among three animal groups: Wild Cru, Farm Sanctuary and Panthera.
Here is the “thank-you” letter we received from American Oxford:
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to acknowledge the receipt of Respect Our Animals’ Rights generous gift of $250 to Americans for Oxford, Inc. We recognize the request for the Directors to allocate the gift as follows:
$250 – WildCRU – In honor of Cecil the lion
At our next quarterly distribution meeting, we will give full consideration to your expressed wishes. For your information and records, no goods or services were provided by Americans for Oxford, Inc. in exchange for your gift. We also ask that you keep this letter with your tax records.
Many thanks once again for your generous support.
