My 2017 puzzle is Off and Running

Woo Hoo!  Off we go!
My new puzzle is a beauty! Thanks to this fabulous snap from Animals Asia.

(heh heh! Of course, I’m used to being photographed now as this is my 8th puzzle!)

Sal hopes to raise at least $11,000 this year which means I am close to being a “zero-cost” bear for Animals Asia.

This means more money from other donors can be used to help Animals Asia rescue more bears!

Woo Hoo! My 2016 puzzle is completed!

HUGE thank you’s from me and Jigsaw!!! Our commitment to cover all of Jigsaw’s annual living expenses and share of sanctuary costs is a huge burden lifted off the shoulders of Animals Asia. Your care and generosity always overwhelms me ….. and of course, DELIGHTS Jigsaw!!  If you haven’t already donated, don’t feel that you have missed out! Jigsaw is always up for some extra “presents” under his Christmas tree which he will happily share with the newly rescued bears – some of whom are desperately in love of TLC xxx

Happy 5th RESCUE birthday Jigsaw!

Hi everyone,

Sorry for the “long drought” between blog posts! (If you like my site please send me an email and I will put you on the newsletter mail-out. I seem to get that out much more regularly than my blog!)

I can hardly believe Jigsaw has been at Animals Asia Tam Dao bear sanctuary for FIVE YEARS – that’s HALF his LIFETIME!!! (as much as we can know how old he is…but that makes him roughly 10 years old!) Five years ago, beginning late 2009 and ending in mid-December 2010, supporters like you raised the $14,500 needed to rescue him from his horrific life on a bear-bile farm in southern Vietnam.

It’s been a huge year for Animals Asia: new challenges, lots of achievements and some great milestones to celebrate. From being entrusted with the care of 130 bears from a closed bear-bile farm to helping prevent over $500,000 worth of bear-bile products being sold per year!  Not to mention the building of several new enclosures at Tam Dao Bear Sanctuary where Jigsaw lives! Great news for bears!  Read more about this action-packed year here!

After we completed the puzzle listed in the previous post I decided to hold off on Jigsaw’s new puzzle until start of 2015. Instead we concentrated on raising money for the 130 bears at the new Nanning sanctuary – where having access to daily food and water was a luxury for these poor tortured animals.

With donations throughout the year and a considerable flourish towards the end of the year we have been able to achieve the above so THANK YOU to those of you who Care for the Bears and support me in this fundraising!

BTW you have a small window of opportunity to make a donation with greater impact: Between now and Dec 31 2014 a generous benefactor of Animals Asia will match your donation so please consider making a donation before the year’s end.

Double-Your-Impact

You can keep up with all news bear by following Animals Asia’s Facebook page!  Lots of news, lots of lovely photos!

Merry Christmas everyone and looking forward to welcoming you back on board with Jigsaw in 2015!
