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!

I'm BAA-aaaccckkk!!!

Hi everyone! My trip was really fun, we got to go everywhere in Disney World!!! Here are some HOPES updates and such:

Congrats to aquacat13 for winning the Striped Hyena auction!!! I haven't yet added the $36.00 to the total because I like to wait until after the whole transaction is done. :)

The next auction will be the Gemsbok! My mom is working today so I am not sure if the auction will be started today, because I don't know how to start them properly. We might be able to after she gets off work... :)

Oh, and Happy Holidays everyone!!!

I am so excited to win the striped hyena (I'm aquacat13). My job is custom framing, so I will design something awesome next time we have our best discount. Glad your trip was great!

Happy Holidays Owen. Keep up the good work. I am looking forward to your next auction.

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.
