CCF Staff received the following letter with a donation from a CCF Kid during Chewbaaka’s Wild Cheetah Challenge:
My name is Lucy Kotecki, I live in Madison, WI and I’m 10 years old. I live at home with my Mom, Dad, my brother Ben and my sister Rose and we’re all homeschooled.
At the beginning of the year I started a dog walking business in my neighborhood to help save the cheetahs. Since then I have gone on over 100 dog walks and I’ve sponsored 3 dogs thanks to your Livestock Guarding Dog program (Also thanks to Chewbaaka’s Wild Cheetah Challenge!).
I have loved cheetahs for as long as I can remember. I have lots of amazing memories including going to a cheetah run with my Dad in San Diego. I’ve always wanted to go see one in the wild but I realized that they are very endangered.
When I saw what CCF was doing and the Livestock Guarding Dog program, that really inspired me. I enjoy reading your stories and books about cheetahs! I also enjoyed watching your Ted Talk!
My Dad and I are going to drive to Indianapolis for the Cheetah Gala this month and I’m really excited to meet Dr. Laurie Marker.
I hope that the money I’m donating from walking dogs helps CCF! I will continue to donate so they can really save a lot of cheetahs! Thank you so much for everything you are doing to help save the cheetah!
We are so thankful for kids like Lucy who dedicate their efforts to helping CCF and the cheetah. Thank you Lucy!
