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!

So, here's the scoop.


Remember when I sent WWF an e-mail describing my login problem on September 15th? Well, I still have not gotten a reply. I am re-sending the e-mail again now, and really hoping for a response. If I do not get one within 5 days, I'll still start up the new feature! We can still recieve donations and I still get alerted about them through e-mail, but I can't login to the Panda Page until WWF helps me resolve the issue. I considered posting sooner but I was hopeful thinking WWF might still reply that day, or maybe the next, etc. Regaurdless of whether I can sign in or not, in 5 days the new feature will be up, and hopefully we can start an auction on that day, too!

Sincerely, Owen Ford.


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.
