Animals Asia’s founder and CEO Jill Robinson met up with Matt Sorum, the legendary Los Angeles-based drummer, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Grammy Award-winning musician who has played with Guns N’ Roses, The Cult and Velvet Revolver, at his studio in LA during a recent trip to the US to promote “Jasper’s Story: Saving Moon Bears”
This is the result of their jamming session – absolutely brilliant
Animals Asia has named Matt Sorum as its newest Ambassador for the United States.
The move follows Matt contacting Animals Asia with an offer to help having been forwarded a YouTube clip, by a Twitter follower, of the plight of moon bears in bile farms in China and Vietnam. The video also showed the work Animals Asia has done towards ending bear bile farming.
You can read more from Jill and Matt about Matt’s absolutely wonderful offer to help end this barbaric practice here
Make your steps count for the suffering animals in Asia.
Sunday 19 May, registration 10.30am 2.5 miles or 5 miles
Members of the London Animals Asia Support Group will be helping out at this event organised by the Animals Asia UK office. It would be wonderful to see many of you there walking for the animals. You will help raise some of those vital funds and will raise awareness by walking on the busy heath.
The walk is led by Simon Lee, the Superintendent of Hampstead Heath, who will guide us by some of the Heath’s most beautiful places including The Pergola, Heath House and Pitt’s Garden.
Every step you take and pound you raise helps us move a step closer to ending the horrific bear bile industry as well as changing hearts and minds towards cats and dogs in Asia, who are tortured and brutally slaughtered for the food and fur industries.
Registration £10 (free for children under 16) with an additional suggested minimum donation or sponsorship of £20. To register call 01579 347148 or email email@example.com
