On Friday, I watched a video that hurt me so deeply I felt numb. I cried when I got home from work. I know I shouldn't watch videos showing animal abuse because it hurts so much but I couldn't turn a blind eye to what is going on in the world. Because the video is highly disturbing, it shows bears, tigers, horses, etc. being beaten, whipped, and punched, I won't post it here.
Tonight I committed to giving $50 a month to Animals Asia. They do important work across Asia to end bear farming (can you imagine this concept?) and the eradication of eating cats and dogs. I encourage you to check out the link and see if you might be interested in helping these initiatives, too.
