Thank You for Making #GivingTuesday a Huge Success for Wild Cats! by Panthera Cats. At the start of the 2012 holiday season, on Tuesday, November 27th, Panthera participated in #GivingTuesday - a national day of giving that encourages charitable activities supporting nonprofits. On this day, over $300,000 was donated to Panthera, and every dollar donated has been matched! This means that over $600,000 will now go directly to the field to protect wild cats!
