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!

Hi Again, New Update!

Wow. Really sorry everyone! Ok, so, mom has been making some calls, and I thought you guys might like to know how it's going. We got an e-mail from WWF saying that they are ok with our site, in fact they like it alot. ( Dunno if they saw it, I think they like the idea alot. ) Mom faxed some stuff to paypal, so we are waiting on that to get this worked out. Oh, and she contacted e-bay, but no reply yet. Again, I'm very sorry for this delay. It's driving me nuts. LOL. So. We are not moving, we are staying right here. I don't know how much longer this will take though, as long as it takes for them to veiw the stuff she faxed I guess. But, having all this free time, I have been practicing drawing tiger heads. I'm still not great, but getting there. Once I'm ready, I'll get a painting done to auction. :D Thanks again everyone for all the support and for sticking with us!

I expect things will work out, just hang in there.

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.
