BENEFITING: ANIMALS ASIA FOUNDATION LIMITED

EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2014

Kai Madden

THE STORY:

Wait.  What are you doing again?

On October 11th 2014, I'll be running the Tough Mudder obstacle course in a full moon bear costume.

Why on earth would you do that?

To raise 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 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 http://www.animalsasia.org.

How can I help?

Please click the "Donate" button.  Any amount you can contribute is so important and appreciated enormously.  Your generous donation will help Animals Asia give these bears a much better life in one of their sanctuaries.
