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).
With a number of exciting items, we have a little more than the bear necessities for you to bid on. If you are looking for a special Christmas or birthday present, to invest in art, take a winter break in the sun or play a round of golf on the famous Ailsa golf course, then our auction may be just the right answer for you. And best of all, every penny raised will be helping the animals your care about and so desperately need your support.
There are a large number of lots with something for every budget and some items that are quite simply priceless, such as our beloved gentle Andrew’s paw print. Andrew’s life, his quiet dignity and triumph over pain and fear sum up what our work - and your help - is all about. What better way to remember how much we have achieved and continue to achieve than with this truly special bear’s paw print?
Other Items include holidays and breaks at luxury five-star hotels across the world from Dublin to Dubai. Go animal watching at a premier African safari lodge or people watching in Puerto Banus, Marbella.
For the golf lover, we have a very special treat at the famous Turnberry resort with golf on the exclusive Ailsa course - it’s a must-have for a true player.
We also have some beautiful paintings by internationally acclaimed artists as well as upcoming young artists to watch out for; memorobilia from the TV series Byker Grove and Waterloo Road; first edition books; adorable and collectable teddy bears; stunning designer jewellry and so much more.
Also included among the lots is a very special sculpture of Ginny bear, limited to just seven copies, by acclaimed sculptor, Suzie Marsh. This is the penultimate sculpture and practically the last chance to acquire this stunning portrait of Ginny.
Bidding starts on 7 September 2009 and will continue until Saturday 31 October at midnight.
