I'm fundraising this summer for an amazing organization! Animals Asia rescues Moon Bears and Sun Bears in Vietnam that have been captured from the wild and caged for harvesting bile on "bile farms". Bile is thought to have magical properties. It is a cruel process and many of these bears will live out their whole lives in a tiny concrete cage in extreme distress and hunger. They endure unbelievable pain and cruelty.
Without focusing on the ugly side of things further, I will say that Animals Asia has managed to change the future of bile farming in Vietnam - they are being phased out legally, AND they change the lives of every single bear they rescue. See the video on this page to see the joy of a bear who is no longer starving, injured or abused. They're so cute! How can you NOT want to support them?!
Animals Asia is having their 21st Anniversary and they are celebrating August 8th with their 3rd Annual "Walk in the Woods". So since there is certainly no better place to "Walk in the Woods" than Tahoe, I'm down! During the month of August, I will be hiking all over the Lake Tahoe Area trails in honor and support of the event.
My goal is to raise $1000. For every dollar that is donated by my friends to this campaign, I will match the donation!
Help me help more of these sweet animals get to enjoy life like the bears in this video!
