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).

Justgiving.com: Animals Asia has teamed up with justgiving.com so you can create your own personal fundraising webpage. Whatever your event, you can create a page that makes it easier to reach your fundraising target. Plus, as justgiving automatically reclaims 28 per cent tax on every donation from UK taxpayers, more money goes directly to the moon bears, cats and dogs.
Setting up a justgiving fundraising page is quick, easy and fun to do! To set up your page just use the following link here, and then click on 'create your own page'. For an example, look at supporters Bob and Laura's page Bob and Laura’s page.
Make sure you complete the ‘Event’ field when you set up the page, so that we can allocate the money you raise to your specific event. Once you're up and running, you can email details to all your supporters so they can donate though the justgiving secure server – taking the hassle out of chasing sponsors for their donation or worrying about processing cash and cheques.
EBAY: Animals Asia Foundation is now a registered eBay charity - this means that when you sell goods on eBay, you can donate all or part of your proceeds to us. And as well as raising money for us, it will also help raise awareness with potential buyers and may even increase your selling price, as buyers like to see their money going towards a good cause. What better cause than saving the moon bears and working to end dog and cat eating?? To get started, all you need to do is select “Animals Asia Foundation” as your chosen charity when listing your item (you do this in section 3 – “Pictures and Details”) and choose the percentage of proceeds to go towards our work. Then follow the instructions on the screen (you will be asked to register as a community seller for Animals Asia with Mission Fish, the web portal that lists all the online eBay charities) and then eBay will do the rest.
