You're Invited -- Vegan Dinner with a Great Cause
DINNER WITH A CAUSEYou are invited to have a delicious Chinese vegan dinner with Jill Robinson, founder of AnimalsAsia, on Sunday, November 8, 2009, at 6:30 p.m., at Shangrila Restaurant, 2026 Irving Street, San Francisco. Cost: $15 per person. There is a limit of 45 guests, so RSVP early.And who is Jill Robinson? She is the woman who first uncovered bear farming in 1993, and has worked tirelessly ever since to end the practice. Tens of thousands of moon bears are imprisoned in tiny cages no bigger than their own bodies for as long as 25 – 30 years, and are painfully milked twice a day for their bile. Jill Robinson and her amazing organization, AnimalsAsia, is working to end this horrific practice. They have rescued over 500 farmed bears who now live in sanctuary. While the Chinese government has not yet banned this cruel practice, it no longer issues permits for new bear farms. Jill will be in the Bay Area in November to raise money for this incredible organization and its work.
Please come to hear her speak and to donate funds to AnimalsAsia, as Jill really needs our support, as you can imagine. You will be moved to tears with Jill’s story and work inspired with hope for change, and moved to give. AnimalsAsia also works to stop the slaughter of cats and dogs for food in Asia. And of course she eats a vegetarian diet! Come eat, cry, laugh, be inspired and GIVE!
