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!

Guest Post On...

Hey Everyone!

Ava from Paw-Talk, Click Here To Go To Paw-Talk! , has invited me to write a guest post on the site! I wrote about how HOPES got started, and about the Tigers, and things people might not have known about them. To read my post, check out the site!

Also, check out our new t-shirt auctions, made for us by Larry!
We have a Kids Medium, Adults Medium, and an Adults Large!

Here are the pictures of the shirts:
(The adults have the same picture because they're exactly the same, just size difference.)

Congratulations to-

Congrats to my Grandma Bonnie for winning Victoria's wonderful auction!!! Thankyou Grandma and thankyou Victoria! :D

We will be starting the 3 shirts auctions soon!

No one had any comments about ideas to make HOPES more interesting, maybe now you guys have some ideas?

Thanks, 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.
