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 was recently the beneficiary of a delightful evening fundraising event in NYC, “Mix and Mingle for Animals Asia,” hosted by U.S. Veg Corp, the organization responsible for the massive annual NYC Vegetarian Food Festival.
More than sixty people gathered at XVI Lounge for a breezy rooftop evening of delicious vegan hors d’oeuvres courtesy of Beyond Sushi, Kyotofu, and Vegetarian’s Paradise 2, accompanied by creative cocktails.
Special guest Alice Ng, Animals Asia’s US Development and Major Gifts representative spoke to the crowd, who were eager to learn more about our organization’s causes.
Animals Asia thanks Sarah Gross and Nira Paliwoda of U.S. Veg Corp for organizing the festive event, which helped get the word out about the plight of bears living on bear bile farms, and the other animals that we work to help.
