I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting me and my fellow team member's "Help a Moon Bear" fundraiser. With your help we have raised over $10,000 for Animals Asia, which is absolutely amazing. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the video of the bear running the Tough Mudder: http://youtu.be/u2Q3uXFMisQ

As you will see, without the help of my team, I would have been in a bit of trouble. But it was your support that kept me going.

Thank you!

Yesterday was the Tough Mudder in which I attempted to run the whole thing in a Moon Bear costume. 11 miles and 6 hours later I fell over the finish line after an epic display of endurance and stupidity. You helped make it possible by supporting me and my Crowdrise team mates over the last year and giving those of us that ran the encouragement to keep going.

The crowd absolutely loved it! My 3 team members Kate, Jude and Marisa were awesome and worked hard to keep me out of danger. Hopefully we were able to raise more awareness about the plight of Moon Bears and Animals Asia's work to help them.

It wasn't for the faint of heart, but some of you were able to come cheer us on. For the rest of you here's a link to give you a taste of yesterday's mayhem: http://www.facebook.com/ToughMudderBear

There's more to come, so if you "Like" the page, you'll be sure to get the latest pictures and video.

Enjoy, and thank you again, with all my heart, for your support.

Remember the Earth day challenge last year to help moon bears in Asia? It was very exciting and, with your help, we almost won by raising a tremendous $27,000!

There's another contest going on right now and the prizes are even larger. There's up to $75,000 up for grabs for the 3 campaigns that raise the most funds by September 24th. I'm in it to win it for Animals Asia again.

Last year, in return for your generosity, I got electric shocks, jumped in a dumpster full of ice water, leapt through fire and ran 12 miles on the Tough Mudder obstacle course. This October I will attempt it again, but this time in a moon bear costume (the emphasis on attempt).

Here's the campaign page: www.crowdrise.com/moonbears

If nothing else, it's worth it for the video of the bear in training.

If you are able to contribute again this year, I would appreciate it so much. Your donation will go toward outfitting Animals Asia's Vietnam sanctuary with much needed medical equipment to help heal these bears that have suffered so much from their treatment on bile farms. All donors will be eligible to win one of three cute moon teddy bears and a DVD of the brilliant documentary "Moon Bear: Journey to Freedom".

Sharing the campaign with everyone you know on Facebook, or Twitter would help tremendously too.

You can keep track of the leaderboard here: http://www.crowdrise.com/STARTARYOT. Look for “Help a Moon Bear”.

Thank you for being so awesome.

Once again, my heartfelt thanks for your support.

Hi there. I wanted to let you know about a new fundraiser that I’m launching to benefit Animals Asia’s Moon Bear rescue . Since you so generously contributed to my fundraiser last year, I wanted to invite you to take part, so we can help them end the suffering of so many bears that languish needlessly for years on bile farms across Asia.

If you are touched by the plight of the Moon Bear, and if you haven’t done so already, why not join me? You can do whatever you want, wherever you want to raise funds, but there will be prizes for the person that raises the most money, and for the most creative/outrageous fundraising idea. It will be a lot of fun. Myself, I'll be running the Pennsylvania Tough Mudder on June 2nd. But if together we get anywhere near the $100,000 goal by October, I pledge to run the New Jersey Mudder in a Moon Bear costume and post a video of it. I’m not sure if it’s physically possible, but there’s only one way to find out...

Anyway, if getting involved is not your thing, a donation of any amount is always immensely appreciated. Please don’t feel obligated though. You have been so generous already.

Here’s a link where you can join the team and get your own fundraising page. It’s worth a look just to see me training in the bear costume: www.crowdrise.com/moonbear

Warm wishes.

Please excuse me reaching out to you again but this is rather urgent and won't cost you anything this time except a minute or two of your time.

I just learned that Animals Asia, the organization that you so generously supported back in May through my fundraiser, is having a bit of a problem at the moment and I wanted to ask you, to take a minute and help them out if you haven't done so already. Please read the news of the potential eviction of their sanctuary in Vietnam at the following link and follow the simple instructions to email the prime minister of Vietnam, sign the online petition, and share the information: http://www.animalsasia.org/index.php?UID=HNL6E4VTP0D

Sounds like there's some dirty tricks going on, and if they succeed it will be a devastating blow to Animals Asia and the 100+ bears in their Vietnam sanctuary who have suffered more than enough already.

Thank you for your help.

Stuff About Me:

My Name is Kai Madden.  I'm an Englishman living in New York.

 

My fundraisers tend to involve Mud and Bears.  I love running the Tough Mudder, and I want to help save Moon Bears from the bile trade in Asia.  So I'm doing what seemed to be the obvious choice:  running the Tough Mudder in a bear costume.

 

I love Crowdrise because they put the "Fun" in Fundraising.
