I just wanted to make sure you knew that an ambitious online fundraising event is currently underway on Crowdrise, to raise money for Animals Asia. Animals Asia is an amazing organization that has rescued hundreds of bears from bear bile farms and is working to change laws and shut down this horrible industry for good. Our fundraising team organizer, Kai, has pledged to run the Tough Mudder obstacle course in a full bear costume in order to raise awareness of bear farming and attract donations. And other members of his team are doing their own original fundraisers--for instance, I am raffling a handmade stained glass panel in return for donations on my page. The goal is to raise $100,000 for Animals Asia by the end of the year. Learn more about the fundraiser, see photos of my stained glass panel that will be raffled, and/or watch a video of Kai training for the Tough Mudder challenge in his bear suit here: http://www.crowdrise.com/MoonBear/fundraiser/courtneycavaliere.
Please help us reach our fundraising goal by donating today! And if you can help us spread the word about this campaign, we would greatly appreciate it.
