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).
Animals Asia's first yoga fundraising event was a great success despite the terrible weather on the day! Thanks to all who turned out to contribute to the fun while raising funds for the bears! Please click here for the audited account of the event.
Join Animals Asia for a day of yoga and help the moon bears
Please join us for a day of yoga. Stretch your limbs because you can — and because thousands of endangered moon bears trapped in tiny cages around Asia can only dream of such a luxury.
This May, we’re holding a full-day of yoga, led by reputable yoga masters, in the spacious and airy Ocean View Court at Cyberport. For a minimum donation of $200, you can stretch your limbs all day, or join us for just one or two sessions. It’s up to you, but every stretch will make a difference!
All proceeds will go to Animals Asia’s campaign to end bear bile farming in Asia. You might also consider asking your family, friends and work colleagues to join in, or if they don’t have the time, to support your dedication through sponsorship. They can make a single donation or sponsor you by the hour!
And there are great prizes for the top two donors:
1st prize: Five private Gyrotonic classes from in-motion yoga studio
2nd prize: Yoga Starter Kit
Stretch for the bears Date: Sunday, 22 May, 2011 Venue: Ocean View Court, The Arcade, Cyberport, 100 Cyberport Road, Pok Fu Lam, Hong Kong Time: 10am to 5pm Fee: $200 minimum donation (payable by cheque, credit card or online)
Not only...but also....
And it's not just yoga — so don't worry if you are not a fan — it's still a great day out for friends and family.
From 1-2pm, enjoy free traditional Indian and Bollywood dance performances, while we take a break from yoga sessions.
All day you can browse a variety of stalls selling handicrafts, organic products, animal communication, and of course Animals Asia’s own merchandise.
All the vendors are kindly donating a percentage of sales to Animals Asia.
Alliance of Animal Communicators Caring about Animals (AACCA)
One of the many highlights of the day includes animal communication volunteers from AACCA offering consultations — simply bring along a printed photo of your dogs, cats or other companion animals if you would like to communicate with them. AACCA is generously donating 100% of their consultation fees to Animals Asia.
