years ago this April, Jill Robinson first walked onto a bear bile farm. On that day in April 1993, Jill could have walked away, but she chose to act and do what she could. Today, you also have a choice. If everyone reading this donated just US$20, it would pay for the care of over 150 bears at our China sanctuary for a full year. Please help us celebrate 20 years of progress. Donate US$20 today (or whatever you can afford).
Just one of the many great stories and fundraising events in Australia that sprung out of our Honey Money Days promotion. Thanks so much to Bev in Brisbane and to everyone who supported this new idea - we'll be doing it again next year, so keep your thinking caps on for more fun events!
Dear Animals Asia Team,
I recently made a donation into Animals Asia's bank account in Brisbane for the Honey Money Days,
A couple of days after receiving the email regarding the Honey Money Days, myself and my boyfriend Lindsay Green left Brisbane for the Snowy Mountains of New South Wales for a cross country skiing trip. We were based in a cabin in Jindabyne for 3 weeks. During this time, together with a couple of friends, Garry Smith and David McLachlan from Newcastle, we skied into an old cattleman's hut in the high country, Cesjacks Hut, for a 4 day camping trip. On Sunday 24th August we did a 16 km round trip, skiing to the top of Mount Jagungal, which is in the wilderness area of the Kosciuszko National Park (in the snowy mountains).
This was my first skiing trip to the top of Mount Jagungal, and I dedicated my trip to the China Moon Bear Rescue. I took my Animals Asia 2008 Calendar with me, and had a photo taken on the top of Mount Jagungal holding the photo of Jasper, together with a China Moon Bear Rescue sign.
