BENEFITING: ANIMALS ASIA FOUNDATION LIMITED

EVENT: World Animal Day Run - NYC

EVENT DATE: Nov 07, 2015

Kai Madden

THE STORY:

Wait. What are you doing again?

On World Animal Day I ran from Harlem to Brooklyn in a Moon Bear costume.
On November 7th 2015, I followed it up by running the New Jersey Tough Mudder.  In the same costume.  Check out the pictures on the left.

Why on earth would you do that?

I'm raising funds and awareness to help moon bears that are used in the bear bile trade.

What's the bear bile trade?

In Asia, bear bile is used in traditional Chinese medicines, even though there are many natural, cruelty-free alternatives. Most of this bile comes from bears that are confined for decades in cage so small that they can’t even turn around or stand up. Bile is taken from them through a tube inserted in their gall bladder.

Wow. That's horrible. Is anything being done to help these bears?

Yes. An non-profit organization named Animals Asia has been working for years to end the bear farming industry and to date has rescued over 500 bears from this life of misery.  You can find out more at www.animalsasia.org.

How can I help?

Please click the "Donate" button. Any amount you can contribute is so important and appreciated enormously. Animals Asia will use your generous donation to care for the lucky bears that have been saved, and help rescue those that still wait.
