Since they were founded, Free the Bears have rescued 950 sun, moon and sloth bears. Many of these bears have been used for exotic pets and bear bile, but Free the Bears rescued them and care for many of them in their sanctuaries in Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam.
Like many charities, Free the Bears are having to cancel all their fundraising events and come up with ideas of how people can raise money from home. They have come up with a very creative fundraiser which you can get involved with.
Free the Bears are having a fundraiser called Night in a Cage.
If you think recent restrictions have been bad for us humans in terms of allowing us to move about, imagine what it would be like to have 18 years in a cage, standing on iron bars and mutilated for bear bile?
Well, this is the fate of many bears, including this one, who was recently rescued by Free the Bears and is now in a Free the Bears sanctuary.
If you can’t join in this event, why not sponsor one of the team? 18 people have already signed up and Free the Bears are hoping to make this to 50.
The CEO Matt Hunt of Free the Bears is spending a Night in a Cage at Free the Bears’ Laos Sanctuary. You can sponsor him by clicking here.
Free the Bears is a registered Australian charity; they are also registered in the UK.
