Long-time Animals Asia supporter, artist and board member for Animals Asia USA, Jan Murphy, came up with a great idea to raise much-needed funds for the moon bears and other animals served by Animals Asia. Jan recently painted her first moon bear and has named the beautiful painting, “Jasper,” after the beloved and legendary “peacemaker” bear, who was one of the earlier moon bears rescued by our organization.
Jan posted this gorgeous painting on her personal Facebook page and listed it for sale, with all proceeds slated to be donated to Animals Asia USA. Not surprisingly, a bidding war immediately ensued and bidding currently sits at $300. If you’d like to bid, place your bid in the comments over on the “Animals Asia North America News” page on Facebook. PLEASE ONLY BID IF YOU ARE A US RESIDENT; USA SHIPPING ONLY. And if you're visiting from other pages, please make sure to "like" the page and tag a friend in the comments who loves animals! The final, highest bid noted on that page at 5 pm Pacific time next Monday, April 13th will be the winner!
Meanwhile, Jan has issued a challenge: If you are an artist and would like to submit a piece of your own work (bear related or not) to raise money for Animals Asia, please email Animals Asia USA at email@example.com. What better way to put creative talents to work?
***Jasper” is Acrylic on Canvas, 11” x 14”. Shipping fees will apply (US only).*** .
