YOU BUY – WE GIVE!

Ciao animal lovers and moon bear supporters around the world!

We would like to share with you exciting new: $24,000 USD and counting. Yes, you saw that right – we’ve raised a hefty $24,000 so far in 2017 for Animals Asia to fund specific, vital day to day operations!!! How amazing is that?

We would like to thank you all, our retail partners and direct consumers, who made this incredible achievement possible. Together WE ARE making a meaningful difference in the world, making it a happier, more equitable place for all living beings we are fortunate to share it with.

I am very happy to communicate the special projects we will support this year with this amount. We decided on two wonderful causes very dear to our hearts:

1. Bring the moonbears home

We strongly support the relocation of the moonbears from an ex-bear file farm in Nanning to their new forever home In Chengdu, where they will finally be able to walk on grass and breathe in fresh air for the first time in their lives! We have been preparing ourselves for this special moment for one year now and we really can’t wait.
We are particularly active in supporting the logistics costs of this ambitious move, as we had the opportunity to personally meet these lovely bears back in 2014 when we visited Nanning, just few weeks after the takeover of the whole structure by Animals Asia. Although by then the bears had water and enough to eat, still many were suffering from the consequences of years of exploitation and malnutrition. It was a very touching and emotionally difficult visit and since then, we have been constantly praying for a new and better life for these bears, free of these cages once and for all.

Of course, in the meantime their quality of life has improved drastically, as their basic needs (water and food) are finally being met and they are healthy and well taken care of. Still, we can’t wait to see them in The Rescue Center in Chengdu, a peaceful new home, where they can finally live their lives free of pain and surrounded by nature and not by the bars of their steel cages.

2. Veterinary support

50% of our yearly donations will go to supporting the valuable work of the AAF team, as we will support one of the resident veterinarians! Our choice was an easy and gratifying one:  the lovely Mandala Hunter-Ishikawa, whom we had the pleasure of getting to know personally during our first visit in Animals Asia Rescue Center in Chengdu and then reconnected with in Tam Dao Rescue Center in Vietnam 2 years later. And finally, as so often happens, the dots connected and we are very happy that Mandala will be able to send us updated, ground-level news directly from the Rescue Center that we will gladly share with you, giving us regular and insightful “backstage” updates !

With our online sales year to date, we have also been able to provide enrichment food for 30 bears for a whole year! Wouldn’t it be wonderful to know that together we all provided for the well-deserved enrichment food for more than 100 bears? That’s our goal and with your support, we can surely do it!
