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!

A Very Important Update~

Hello to anyone who still checks in here~

I know I've been absolutely terrible at updating this site and getting things moving. I don't have an excuse, except mabye a forgetful memory, but I do want you guys to know that HOPES is not dead, and won't be, until we raise our goal.

I have been doing alot of work for HOPES lately, though I haven't posted. I wanted to make sure everything was in order before bringing people back to the site. We've transferred all of the paypal donations to the bank, and soon will be moving them to their final destination at our Panda Page!

I've also been working on a new way to get donations with the help of two of my friends. It's not finished yet, but it should be pretty soon! My Mom and I have been working on some new things to auction, and so have my cousins!

So, right now, there are not any auctions going, but there will be soon. Again, I am so sorry for not updating to let you guys know what was going on...

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.
