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!

Donating Issues

Soon when my mom has time ,we are going to see if there is a way to make it so people can donate through Paypal on the panda page, because right now the only option is with a credit card. So we hope we can, because it'd be easier for people to donate then, I think.

Hi again everyone!

Hi there!

Thanks again and again for posting and emailing about H.O.P.E.S, It's really brought alot of people here!!!

Don't forget about our auction, it's still going!!

Also, please feel free to donate, because the donations are what is going to make this happen. WWF can't plant that 30ft larch to help the tigers and other natural wildlife without the $4,000.
We're about 1/4 of the way there, and I think that's so awesome, because, I don't care how long this takes, I'm going to raise the money. :)

I set up this site with my mom to raise money for one of my favorite species, the tiger. And man, the donations are really piling up! The tigers are really going to get some good help with this.
Thankyou everyone, so much!!!

Now, along the right is a donation button that I made! It will take you to the Panda page, where you can then donate! We are also making changes to the layout to make it easier to navigate and more fun to look at.


The GRAND OPENING will be on FRIDAY The 24th!!!
We will have that Tiger Themed Bookmark for auction!!
If you want to post about HOPES on friday, that would be PERFECT!
Thankyou if you do!

Great News!!!

I haven't been posting for a while because I didn't want to say anything that might not work out. But it looks we are going to be having our re-grand opening very very soon!!! WWF has asked us to set up a Panda Page, which I did. hen we will link the PP on our site, instead of a donate button. So you can donate at the Panda Page!!! Meaning that we won't really even use paypal, it will all be through WWF. Also, we're going to start our auctions through Giving Works in E-bay, so auctions are taken care of. Now I just need to finish getting everything hooked up, and we'll be ready to go. Once everything IS ready I'll set a date for the RE-GRAND-OPENING, so if you want to make a post about us on that day to help bring in people, that would be great!!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, for hanging with us, because the wait is finally over.

Hi everyone

Sorry I haven't been posting (again). It's been busy here. Been working on some stuff for the site. I'm not sharing any details because I'm going to write about them later, in a few days. We're still here, just working on other things and working offline! :D

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.
