On 8th August every year, Animals Asia and its many supporters across the globe come together to celebrate #MoonBearDay.

This year is more important than ever, as we are celebrating an incredible milestone - our 25th Birthday!

That’s why this year, we’re calling August – Moon Bear Month!

Join a host of other like-minded people across the world in helping Animals Asia to make real and lasting change for the beautiful moon bear. 

There are a variety of different ways you can get involved and #ReachForTheMoon for Moon Bear Day!

Here are our top 5 picks:

It’s our 25th anniversary so why not take on something “25”? It could be a 25km walk, a marathon, 100km in 25 days, tackling 25 push-ups a day. You can put 25 in front of anything challenging and it makes it relevant while giving you a target too!

Set up a personal challenge today and join your fellow Moon Bear Heroes over on JustGiving and SimplyGiving to help us reach our team goal of raising over £100,000!

Join our #ReachForTheMoon Challenge Team from the UK or Europe

Join our #ReachForTheMoon Challenge Team from Australia or USA

Join our #ReachForTheMoon Challenge Team from Hong Kong or Asia 

Whether it’s your animal friend's birthday or your own, or you’ve got another special occasion to commemorate in August, celebrate alongside our 25th Birthday and set up a fundraiser on Facebook! It’s quick and easy and a great way to get your loved ones involved.

Head over to https://www.facebook.com/AnimalsAsia/fundraisers to set up yours today. 

Click on the image above to download one of our Special “25th Birthday Edition” posters! Put our poster bear, Delaney – who is also celebrating his 25th birthday after years of love and care at our China sanctuary – up in your window to show solidarity with the 300 remaining bears yet to be rescued in Vietnam. It serves as a reminder that we will not leave them behind and we won’t stop until every last bear is free.

Whether it’s an Afternoon Tea, a Big Bear Stretch yoga class, a Dress Down Day at work, or a group Litter Pick – there’s no better time to organise an event to raise vital funds and awareness than in August!

Why not do our personal favourite and get the adults and kids involved on a gorgeous sunny day, with a Teddy Bears' Picnic! Get the whole family involved with their bears, while raising funds for ours.

We have plenty of ideas in our UK fundraising pack with activities that could work anywhere in the world.

And finally, we are on the look-out for people to hold street collections across the UK throughout August. Would you be interested? 

We have a step-by-guide we can send you and once you’ve applied, we can help promote your collection to get fellow volunteers to help. We provide buckets, tins, stickers, leaflets, etc - we just need you! We’d like to see as many collections as possible happening across the UK during the month to really get the word out there about our work to end bear bile farming.
