We may not have won the Earth Day Challenge, but we won one for the bears by raising $20K for them. My heartfelt thanks to all of you! Kai

BENEFITING: ANIMALS ASIA FOUNDATION LIMITED

EVENT: Groupon Earth Day Challenge

EVENT DATE: May 15, 2012

HOURS PLEDGED: 50

THE STORY:

This is Jasper.  He's an Asiatic Black Bear, also known as a Moon Bear due to the crescent shaped pattern on the chest.  To look at him now you wouldn't know that he spent 15 years locked in a cage the size of a coffin, having his gall bladder milked of bile.  But that's the extremely unfortunate reality for thousands of Moon Bears across China and Vietnam.

Fortunately, Animals Asia has made it their mission to rescue moon bears like Jasper, and put an end to this sickening practice.  Founded by Jill Robinson of the UK, Animals Asia operates two sanctuaries where the lucky few can live out the rest of their days with love, companionship and grass beneath their paws.   To date, they have liberated over 300 bears and will not rest until the thousands that still languish on farms today, are free.

I'm in the running for the Groupon Earth Day Challenge.  If we raise the most money, it's an extra $25,000 (£15,500) for the bears!  I would love for us to be able to hand that check over to Jill.

In return for your very generous donations I ran the Tough Mudder in PA on May 12th and after reaching $10,000 shaved my head as promised.  Anyone who donates will be entered for a chance to win their very own, and very cute, Moon Teddy Bear Cub. There's 10 up for grabs! (see picture on the left)  

No donation is too small.  You can either donate by clicking the “Donate” button to the right.  Credit & Debit cards are accepted.  If you are outside the US, you can donate a dollar amount and your credit card company will convert it to your local currency automatically.  If you would like to donate via check/money order or Paypal, just drop me a line at kaimadden@aol.com.

Thank you so much for your support.  It really means the world to me.
