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!

Donation Total

If anyone is wondering why the total of our donations has not been updated, it's because, on the Panda Page, we can see the total amount of donations, and who's donated, but we can't see who donated what.

So I can't add the latest donation(s) in until I can be positive the exact number.

I also have not added the Striped Hyena or Gemsbok amount yet, but I will very soon.

Also, my friend is doing some art for HOPES, and so is my cousin! So soon we'll have tons of pictures to auction. I'm working on another animal (a surprise) in the same style as my last pictures for another auction too.

(Don't forget to check out our current auction, the black Rat! You can go to it by clicking on the rat's head on the right-hand side. :D)

Thanks Nina!

Thankyou very much Lisa! :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.
