Please help to set me free!
The Chinese New Year starts next Monday 23rd January and no doubt there will be celebrations across the world to ring it in.
Some Chinese residents will not be joining them however – they are kept in cages no bigger than themselves and milked daily for their bile. They are Moon Bears.
To help Animals Asia eradicate this horrendous practice and to set them free, I am raising money by having a Chinese New Year High Tea and Yum Cha event in Brisbane on Sat 11 Feb 2-4pm called Moon Cakes and Moon Bears.
The Moon Cakes & Moon Bears event will feature different Chinese teas and savoury and sweet treats that are traditionally eaten at this special time of year.
Tea expert May King Tsang from May King Tea will be giving a talk on her extensive knowledge of teas, plus an insight into the fascinating customs celebrated for Chinese New Year. Follow her on Twitter @MayKingTea or her website: http://www.maykingtea.com
Fabulous raffle prizes will be on offer plus there will even be a Chinese Market Stall selling pre-loved clothes, shoes, handbags & more with items selling for as little as $2! Attendees will also receive a gift bag with some Chinese New Year goodies including your horoscope, a good luck scratchie ticket, a Fortune Cookie and more!
Indulge in Chinese delights!
All profits, raffles sales and stall sales from the day will go directly to Kerri’s China Moon Bear Rescue Challenge
which aims to raise $10,000 for Animals Asia to continue their rescue and rehabilitation of Moon Bears from the extremely cruel practice of bear bile farming in China. http://www.facebook.com/Help.Rescue.The.Bears
Thank you so much for your support!
Kerri and all the Moon Bears in Asia!
