ON #GivingTuesday

Subject: Join me! Save a Place for Birds on #GivingTuesday

Hi [FIRST_NAME],

I am excited to announce that I am supporting American Birds Conservancy's #SaveAPlaceForBirds 1:1 MATCH by taking on the role of a fundraising champion. My fundraising will help ABC save birds from extinction, conserve habitat, and eliminate threats for birds across the Americas.

Would you consider joining me in supporting this campaign, with a gift to save birds before midnight? To donate, visit [YOUR CHAMPION PAGE URL or www.saveaplaceforbirds.org]

Through midnight this #GivingTuesday (midnight on November 30), ABC is planning its biggest day to give back to birds in its history by raising more than $100,000 in ~24 hours, which is why I'm asking you to make a gift now:

Birds face tremendous threats, from habitat loss to collisions with windows, tall towers, power lines, and wind turbines; outdoor cats and other invasive species; pesticides; and, compounding all of this, climate change. But ABC knows how to save birds:

  • Of the seven birds in the Americas that have been brought back from the brink of extinction since ABC was formed (1994), ABC played a major role in saving four of them (Junin Grebe, Grenada Dove, Pale-headed Brushfinch, and Lear’s Macaw);
  • With partners, ABC has helped protect more than one million acres for birds, and improved the management of more than seven million acres;
  • ABC has trained over 2,000 architects in bird-friendly design, successfully intervened on 27 state bills to protect birds from feral cats, and successfully advocated for cancellation or restrictions on the use of 14 chemicals used in pesticides.

Thank you for supporting me and American Bird Conservancy.
