This year I'm raising money for Animals Asia. A fantastic organization founded by Jill Robinson of the UK which provides sanctuary to Moon Bears lucky enough to be rescued from a living hell on bile farms in China and Vietnam. They also work tirelessly to put an end to this unimaginably cruel and unnecessary practice. You can find out more about the great work they do, and even sponsor a bear yourself at http://www.animalsasia.org
In return for your generous contributions, I will be running the grueling 12 mile Tri-State Tough Mudder event on November 13th, braving fire, freezing cold water, and electrocution along the way. Check out the course at http://www.toughmudder.com, and take delight in the fact that soon, while you're donning your slippers on a frosty Sunday morning, I'll be crawling through a bog in the middle of New Jersey.
Thank you for your support! Any amount you can spare is greatly appreciated, and will go toward a very worthy cause.
