This is, to be blunt, a request for donations.  ABR is a non-profit corporation.  We are not a governmental agency.  We are able to help the bear cubs only because of your generous donations.  We don’t like asking for money any more than you like being asked for it.  But at times, such as now, we simply have to remind our wonderful supporters that we deeply appreciate their past generousity and that we hope (and need) it will continue. 

I hope you’ll understand.  We put all the money you give into feeding and caring for the bear cubs.  Please, as you can, consider going to ABR’s website and making a donation:  I promise you it will be put to a good purpose.
