Woo Hoo! We’re all finished! Thank you everyone for your support! But if you’re thinking “Bother, I missed out…”  then don’t worry!!! You can still donate a pot of honey!!
It was so coooool this year because the final pieces were donated on the same day as the anniversary (Dec 14 2010) of raising the initial money to rescue me!!
Thank you to ALL my supporters!
Love YOUR bear, Jigsaw

Jigsaw’s puzzle is romping home for Christmas!

Well we’ve nearly done it!  And if you don’t get in soon, you will miss out on a piece of my 2017 puzzle. When we finish it, we will have raised almost $11,000 towards my Bear Care Club this year !!!! Woo Hoo!!!!  
And if you would like to read my December 2017 newsletter, click here! Jigsaw had a whole lot of fun asking bears at the sanctuary the keys to being Happy Bears…. and do you know what…. the answers are pretty simple…. and probably the same as what makes you and me happy, too!

Bazan & Wendles had to wait 10 years before they could play together

Some wonderful news coming out of Animals Asia’s sanctuaries as recently rescued bears are overcoming their traumatic and abusive pasts and learning to play.

GLOOMY DAY HAS SILVER LINING!

As anyone living in Melbourne knows, April 12 was the coldest day since October 2014, with squalls of rain and hail, so it was with some trepidation we headed off to the market site. _We were daunted but not deterred!_
Half the stall-holders didn’t show up and only about a third of usual punters showed up. Possibly we benefited from less competition on the day! After learning more about the bears’ lives on bile-farms, most people bought something to support our cause and several happily made donations.

Given the conditions we weren’t overly confident about our takings.. So imagine our surprise and great delight to discover we had made almost $2000 for one wet morning! Added to pre-sales of $400, at $2386 it’s our second best total! Bear Market 2015_4Bear Market 2015_3

My friends brought a happy energy and enthusiasm to their volunteering on the day – I couldn’t do it without them! Heartfelt thanks to Bill, Chris, Annie, Miche, Leanne, Jo & Jo, Rose and Marg. Also to those of you who donated such great goodies for us to sell.

So it was indeed a gloomy day – but one with a Silver Lining! Read our latest newsletter here
