THE STORY:

Wait. What are you doing again?


On October 4th 2015, I will run from Harlem to the Brooklyn Bridge in a Moon Bear costume.  I will then follow it up by running the Tri-State Tough Mudder on November 7th, in the same costume.

Why on earth would you do that?

It's World Animal Day, and to celebrate I'll be 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 400 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.

DONATION: $100

There is no greater suffering that an animal has to bear than that of a 'farmed' Moon Bear - it can last for the lifetime of the bear, which can be up to 30 years. For me, there is no greater cause to donate to than that of Animals Asia. 4 days ago
