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!

New Site Update

Well, we found out that the fax machine we use doesn't send the drivers license properly... Like, it doesn't come out clearly. So, now we have to either find a scanner that works ( Ours is busted, most likely animal related) or my camera. But I don't think the camera is going to give a good clear picture. That's the latest news. OH and I'm going to work on painting that cat today! It's been sanded, so the rust is off. :) Paypal is really taking forever. But we'll make it eventually!!!
Auction list so far: ( FAR=finished and ready, AD=almost done, and NW=needs work. )
FAR- Tiger themed bookmark.
AD/NW- Metal Wall hanging cat
AD- Lion Figurine/sculpture.

And more to come. :)

Owen, did I mention this posting?:

Owen, you can get things scanned and faxed at places like Kinkos. It costs a little, but less than a new scanner. :)

Yeah pj, you did, and it's really cool!

Mjlayman, my grandma has a scanner!!! :D :D :D. So that problem's solved, for now.. LOL

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.
