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!

Important Updates-

Hi everyone and Happy Holidays!

Mom tried to get the auction up tonight, but E-bay was giving her alot of trouble, so, no auction yet. It IS coming very soon though! We're very busy, like most of you probably are, with the holidays. Lots of family coming in! :D

Sorry for no auction yet, I know it's been a while. There WILL be one as soon as we can get it up!
(Oh, and, I changed it where it said I'm a 13 year old girl at the top, cause I'm 14 now! My birthday was the 17th! :D )
And I took down the old auction, finally. LOL.

Goodnight everyone, it's late herre. I'll post again as soon as I can and get the auction up, too.
Thankyou, Owen

Hey Owen,

Happy belated Birthday! Your mom told me that Sarah missed you very much during your trip...was she excited to see you when you returned?

A very Merry Christmas to you, Sarah and your family from me, Karl and Bob!

This is very impressive, you're almost to your $1,500.oo goal. Glad you had a great time at Disney World and congratulations on your birthday.

In any case, bestest wishes to you and yours for this holiday.
PJ, Ranger Dog, and the 2 G-Kitties.


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.
