Free the Bears Fundraising Raffle | RaffleLink

Feed pumpkin to rescued bears and you could WIN!

Having lost many fundraising sources to COVID-19, Free the Bears had to get COVID-creative! Spending a 'Night In A Cage' raised funds to feed hundreds of rescued bears in May & June. We're now asking for your help to feed the bears from July-September, and this time we're delighted to be able to have a chance to give something back to you (besides the satisfaction of knowing you've helped care for vulnerable, hungry rescued bears). 
$5 will feed a bear for a day (bears LOVE to eat pumpkin). For every $5 ticket you buy in our annual Australia-wide raffle, you'll be helping feed hungry rescued bears PLUS each ticket will give you one extra entry into a draw where you'll have a chance to win one of three fabulous prizes - a rare artwork valued at A$3,000, a gold nugget or $400 in vouchers for a shopping spree. The more tickets you buy, the more bears you'll feed AND the greater chance you'll have of turning pumpkins into gold! Get your tickets today!

Free the Bears is a non-profit organisation dedicated to protecting, preserving and enriching the lives of bears around the world. Free the Bears was founded in Perth, Australia in 1995 by grandmother Mary Hutton. When Mary learnt of moon bears suffering in bile farms, she formed Free the Bears, helping rescue and rehabilitate over 950 bears from the illegal wildlife trade and other cruel conditions, as well as protect wild bears. Just like our founder Mary Hutton, you can make a difference. 

Please help us make up for the suffering these beautiful creatures have endured. Support our annual raffle!
