Help End Bear Farming
Posted by cec4321 at 08/28/2013
An online fundraiser is currently underway, benefiting Animals Asia Foundation. For those unfamiliar with Animals Asia Foundation, it is an organization working to end the horrible practice of bear bile farming in Asian countries. The organization has two sanctuaries (one in China and one in Vietnam) for bears rescued from the farms. I've been a supporter of Animals Asia for several years now, and they do amazing work.
You can check out the fundraiser here: www.crowdrise.com/MoonBear/fundraiser/courtneycavaliere. I'm raffling a stained glass panel in return for donations on my page. And our team leader is running the Tough Mudder obstacle course in a full bear costume to raise money and awareness. You can see photos of the panel being raffled, and a video of our leader training in his bear suit, at the Crowdrise website.
If anyone is interested in donating--or in joining the team--we would certainly appreciate it. It's for a great cause!
