The Christmas Challenge 2017: Bush Tucker Trial

Panda News

We announced last week that we would be supporting the OPERA Global Youth Foundation during ‘The Big Give’ Christmas Challenge. The pandas are true to their word…we completed the challenge on the 28th of November! #PandaPower!

What is ‘The Big Give’ Christmas Challenge?

The Big Give Christmas Challenge enables charities to find wide spread support from donors. Those who donate can find charities that are within their field of interest, from medical research charities to those helping people less fortunate than others.

During the Christmas Challenge, donations are matched from 28th of November to the 5th of December. This means charities are able to do so much more with the generosity of donors.

We are supporting The OPERA Global Youth Foundation, who help disadvantaged youths out of poverty to get their foot on the career ladder. It’s an amazing cause that is close to our hearts!

What happened during our Bush Tucker Trial?

Well, while it wasn’t the most pleasant of challenges it was a great laugh. Jonathan, John, Mischa, Chris & Ashleigh all took part in our efforts to raise money for OPERA. Here’s what was on the menu:

  • Wild Black Ants
  • Cheese & Onion Crickets
  • Locusts
  • Mealworms
  • Giant Water Bugs
  • Sago Pupae
  • Silkworm Pupae

The Sago Pupae is highly recommended…NOT! All the participants agreed that this was by far the hardest one to stomach! Sorry if you’re having your lunch while you read this…

What can you do?

Donations for OPERA are now being accepted during The Big Give challenge week. You can help the cause at the following link: http://bit.ly/2ibUdY3

Let us do a little bit of admin and then your comment will be added to the conversation. Or not. Depends on what you wrote. Panda bears don't like swears.
