We’re still pinching ourselves! Our Camberwell Market stall last Sunday went gang-busters! We sold A WHOPPING $2926 of your Trash’n’Treasure in only 6 hours!! That’s some serious selling, let me tell you!
It goes without saying: A HUGE Thank You to all the Happy Bear Helpers who made the morning fly by, having lots of FUN, sharing information about the bears with the public and encouraging lots of BUYING! And a Big Thank You to all of you who took the time to fossick around in your cupboards to bring us your treasures to sell.
Blow that trumpet! A DREAM comes true for Animals Asia and offers new hope for bears trapped on bear-bile farms.
Those of us supporting Animals Asia’s extraordinary work in Asia have dreamt of the day when the bear-bile industry finally wakes up to itself and realises that the pain and torture it inflicts on Moon Bears cannot go on!
THAT DAY HAS COME for 130 – YES! 130 Bears – in Nanning, China. Animals Asia will convert a bear bile farm in Nanning, China, into a sanctuary following an unprecedented request by the owners of the bear-bile farm to rescue and care for its 130 bears.
Mr Yan has described the decision to approach Animals Asia as one fuelled by the desire for the company to get out of the increasingly unpopular and ultimately unprofitable industry. He was also determined that the bears would not be sold onto other farms and continue to suffer cruelty.
This decision has been taken voluntarily – from within the bear-bile industry!** _That there has been an understanding and acceptance of how the bears have been suffering – and must not continue to do so – is profound.
Peace by Piece
Remember: the money we raise for Jigsaw means that other people’s money can be used to rescue and rehabilitate more bears. Well that time has come: 130 bears are now in need of financial help – that’s more than the number of bears at Tam Dao where Jigsaw lives…. all about to begin a wonderful journey into Freedom… so your support of Jigsaw is as important now as it ever has been!
