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!

Upcoming Auctions-

Hello everyone! I'm sorry I have not posted lately, I kind of forgot... I'm sorry!
But I do have alot of upcoming auctions!!!

From the very kind and genorous Larry, we recieved three different sized t-shirts with tiger cubs he drew on the front! They're adorable and awesome! We will be auctioning them at the same! :) Thanks Larry!

From my 9 year old wonderful cousin Victoria, we have a BEAUTIFUL red panda picture that she drew! It's so cute, realistic and awesome! Great job! Thanks Victoria!

From me we have a work in progress of an okapi, in the same pencil & smudger style as most of my pictures, like, the black rat and gemsbok. :)

The order they'll be auctioned is:
1. The Red Panda by Victoria.
2. The T-shirts by Larry.
3. The Okapi by me.

Thankyou for supporting HOPES and watching the site and our donations grow. And again, I'm sorry I haven't updated. :)

Can't wait to see the items for auction. Way to go, Owen!

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.
