How I Want to Break Free

Moon Bear confined permanently to Coffin Cage for up to 30 years

Virginia McKenna OBE and Jill Robinson MBE are two fighting-ladies…fighting for those who cannot speak or fight for themselves. Both women are animal rights activists and campaigners and have and continue to achieve much for the animals for whom they speak. Over 300 Moon Bears have now been rescued and taken to permanent safety in a natural sanctaury in Cheng Du, China. More can be saved if we all help and talk about this and of course donate🙂

Last night in Farham, England an evening was held to promote the Animals Asia organisation and the Born Free Foundation. Jill spoke about how Virginia McKenna who founded the Born Free Foundation was her heroine growing up. And now the two organisations, Animals Asia and Born Free, are working together to help Moon Bears in zoos and used as entertainment in China.


Right now I am selling Moon Bear art and colourful greetings cards of which all sales goes directly to Animals Asia to continue to fight for the end to Bear Bile Farming  in Asia. Since 25th May this year my art has raised £236 ($376) by caring people buying it.

Mafi the Magnificent Moon Bear available as cards in my store http://www.eastwitching.etsy.com

Bluebell the semi-blind Moon Bear available in my store http://www.eastwitching.etsy.com

Please look at my shop if you would like a Moon Bear inspired print or Moon Bear greetings cards such as these shown above. You CAN help and what ever you buy will make a difference to these defenceless creatures.

Thank you.

  1. hmm, you may have to wait, Alison! I am definetly going to have to get a decent scanner – pics of my paintings are not coming out well at all. It is my birthday in august, so maybe I can wangle one as an early present! Also need to pluck up the courage to show them on my blog! I know not that many people will see, but it is still quite a big thing for me to be so open about my artistic experiments. You wouldn't believe how many times I have posted and then deleted them on my blog, daft, eh!? I know that is kind of what a blog is for and I want it to be a place where I share my honest journey as an artist with other like-minded people, but still, I need a bit more courage in that area!!

  5. Thank you for raising awareness about the awful plight of these lovely bears – I will be looking into it myself, as I had no idea about this. You are doing a great job. Makes me think about how I can use my skills, etc to help the issues I believe in. Thank you for your example!

    Also – I read your interview on the blog, and that has inspired me too. What you said about painting what you love… I have been thinking a lot about this recently, and may just be starting to have the courage to do the sort of art that I MYSELF want to do… not what others say I should, no matter how well intentioned they are. Watch this space… I am quite excited. Thank you for being a positive artistic inspiration to me! J x

    ps. book is great! x
