Bungeeing for Bunnies

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008

baker.jpgHow far would you go to help pet rabbits? The UK’s Andy Baker asked himself that question. His answer: 1000 feet straight down from the world’s highest suspension bridge, the Royal Gorge Bridge in Colorado, using only a bungee cord.

His free fall jump will result in speeds up to 90 mph. But Baker is willing to take this plunge in order to help raise money for the Rabbit Welfare Association and Fund in the UK and the Colorado House Rabbit Society in the US.

The jump will occur as part of the Go Fast! Games on September 26.

Bunnies Offer Therapeutic Healing

Wednesday, April 16th, 2008

Cuddle Bunnies, an English charity that provides therapeutic healing through petting bunnies, is celebrating its tenth anniversary. The charity began when founder Sue Horsman brought her 6-month-old house-trained rabbit to visit her seriously ill uncle in the Bexhill Hospital in Sussex, England.

Now the charity has 9 adult members and 7 junior members with 2 more in training. The group cheers up patients at hospitals and care homes, and they also help children. Cuddle Bunnies works with autistic children and visits schools and youth organizations teaching kids how to look after their pets. According to Horsman, “There are so many things we can do to help autistic children. It helps to give them confidence.”
