Support WLT in the Big Give

World Land Trust can save more acres if you donate during The Big Give Christmas Challenge.

Double your donation by supporting the World Land Trust (WLT) during the Big Give Christmas Challenge. Your donation will save twice as many acres during the week of 5 - 9 December thanks to matched funding from pledged donors and The Big Give. This means we will be able to save even more acres of threatened habitat in Central and South America.

Help us reach our ambitious target of £200,000:

  • Tell friends and family - forward this eBulletin, spread the word on Twitter, Facebook and other social networks
  • No need to forget the date - we will remind all our eBulletin subscribers nearer the time, and people can also sign up to receive the WLT Big Give Reminder email »
  • Donate between 5 - 9 December on The Big Give website
