About The Site

Well hi there!
My name is Owen Ford, I'm a fourteen year old girl, and I run this blog with my friends and family! I created HOPES to raise money for WWF (World Wildlife Fund), specifically for Siberian Tigers! Our goal is $5,000, and we're about halfway there!

Along the right sidebar you can donate, visit our Artist Commission Page, take part in the current auction, see our current total, join our mailing list and a lot more!

Thank you so much for checking us out, we really appreciate it!

First Auction!!!

Hi everyone!! We have our first auction going!! You can go to the link on the side, and here's the link too:

My mom made it for HOPES, and it's tiger themed with a hematite bead on one end. You can use it as a bookmark, or as a bracelt. ( I liike them as bracelet's. :) ) I could only post one picture on e-bay, so here are the other pictures:

That is SO beautiful! I want. >.<

I have a question... I'm a Coyote-reader and got here from there but I'm also a total animal nut. In fact, last night I dreamt of adopting an abandoned pug puppy and kitten despite my family's protests that six animals in the house is too many...

Anyway! My question! Will you accept handcrafts in your name?

Etsy ( is an online marketplace for handcrafts and their list price is pretty cheap. You could start up a store and use the proceeds from it towards your goals. :D

With that in mind, I am a pooooooooooor college student scraping by in Atlanta, GA BUT I'm as crafty as all get-out. I'd LOVE to help you by making things for you to sell. I can sew and crochet, draw and... well, just about anything. >.< I love learning new skills.

Either shoot me a reply here or get with me on MSN ( either way and GOOD LUCK!

Ok! If you would want to make animal themed crafts and such, you're very welcomed too! If you get something done and would like to send it, just email me and I can give you the address! :D Thanks!

As another way to raise money, we auction things on E-bay. These things can range from hand drawn digital and pencil animal pictures, animal paintings, animal themed bookmarks, and more. No, not everything is animal themed, we just prefer it to be since we are raising money for animals. If you have something you'd like for us to auction, you can send it to us. As I'm 13, I have to always ask my parents before I give out the address, so you will have to contact me with some info about what the item(s) is, and such. Then I can give you the address. :D

Have some questions? Want more info? Care to donate? Contact us at:

We will reply within a day or two.

Thanks to Pyzam for the awesome Layout. Thanks to WWF for doing such a great job helping and protecting our wildlife. Thanks to all my friends and family who've helped. Thanks to MC for the name, it fits perfectly!!! The logo is (C) to HOPES, please do not steal, or re-use in any way. ( Although I couldn't draw a paw, so I heavily refferenced it, and I don't know who originally did it. ) We are a non-profit orginization. Any money HOPES earns goes to the WWF.
