Unbearlievably Bearded

By Nathan Foster

I've been a supporter of Animals Asia and their efforts to end Bear Bile Farming throughout Asia for many years and couldn't ignore the opportunity to raise money and awareness for this cause while growing a great beard!

Bear bile is used as an ingredient in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Despite the existence of effective alternatives, health risks associated with using products containing bear bile, and their sale and consumption being illegal in many countries, bear bile is still used to treat ailments ranging from eye diseases to hematoma and digestive disorders.

In Vietnam alone, both the moon bears and the sun bears used for bile extraction are on the brink of local extinction as a result of relentless illegal poaching, trading and demand for their parts and derivatives.

Every donation is welcome and appreciated. 

I will match every donation dollar for dollar and all donations over $2.00 are tax deductible. 

Please visit https://www.animalsasia.org/au/our-work/end-bear-bile-farming/ to learn more about Animals Asia and Bear Bile Farming.

UPDATE: With less than 2 weeks to go, I'm only $100 away from my goal! Any donations that total up to $50 will be matched to meet the target, please donate!
