GRAND PRIZE WINNER
A note from Cielo
My name is Cielo! I am a black jaguar living happily in a sanctuary in Mexico with tigers, lions and other beautiful big cats. These are my friends!
I am here on Prizeo because I want to help protect Cecil the lion's cubs. I am so sad about what happened to Cecil. I am able to live in this beautiful sanctuary because I was rescued from a life of being drugged so that humans could pay to take photos with me. Eduardo and the Black Jaguar White Tiger Foundation continue to help big cats just like me, and Cecil's cubs need our help. Your donation will go toward efforts to protect them and keep them safe in their own home, and also to help us continue to rescue big cats from dire situations in captivity.
I would like to invite one of you to spend a day with me and my friends at our sanctuary in Mexico. You will see some of the cubs up close and interact with them - they might even allow you to play with them and hold them! You'll get to see how all of the animals are taken care of, and you will able to see the incredible bond between the animals and our human friends. We'll take some amazing photos and videos together too!
The sanctuary is a safe haven for us. If you want to spend a day with me there, please donate what you can to help protect these innocent lion cubs. Every dollar makes a difference! And if you win, you and a guest will be flown out to Mexico from anywhere in the world to join me and the other cats for a wonderful day.
Once you have seen the beauty and love of the animals, you will never be the same.
Thank you so much for your support. I can't wait to meet one of you!
About The Black Jaguar White Tiger Foundation
The Black Jaguar White Tiger Foundation (BJWT) has rescued over 170 felines and counting from a life of terror in circuses, zoos and with breeders. Eduardo's dream is to end all suffering of the beautiful animals that we humans have inflicted upon them.
Your donation will help protect Cecil the lion's cubs from possible death.
The rest will help the foundation build and maintain a beautiful home for the cats that they have rescued. The cats cannot be released to the wild because they would not survive there. Our sanctuary currently consists of two stages, and we are working on a third.
Stage 1 is the nursery equivalent. If we rescue an animal at a young age they are properly cared for in a smaller home setting where they can be constantly monitored and fed every four hours. They are constantly getting human warmth and attention so they can develop and grow in a nurtured and loving environment.
Stage 2 consists of 8 acres of land for our babies to run freely and safely without harming one another or risking danger.
Stage 3 is coming soon. It will be thousands of acres for our babies to live their lives happily, free of poachers, and safe from the other dangers and threats that society has placed on the environment.
Special thanks to The Forever Dream Foundation for partnering with BJWT to make this campaign possible. The Forever Dream Foundation is dedicated to making dreams come true for kids with low resources by giving them special sports and entertainment experiences.
