FLASH!!! WE NOW HAVE TWO CUBS WITH 20 PARENTS ALL HANDING OUT BAMBOO CIGARS!! WITH A FINAL THIRD CUB HALF SPOKEN FOR WOOO HOOO!
Due to the overwhelming response and generosity of my awesome friends and customers I am going to continue to take names until we reach 30 adoptees!!! The second and third group of 10 each will be adopting another cub with me. I will be posting more info here today as well as emailing everyone with details on where payment will be sent. There is room for 4 more on the third cub
OVERWHELMED AND EXTEMELY PROUD IS HOW FEEL THIS MORNING!! THANK YOU ONE AND ALL!!!!!!
TO COMMEMORATE THIS JOURNEY OF GIVING AND LOVE..ALL 10 PARTICIPANTS WILL RECEIVE A SPECIAL LIMITED EDITION PANDA PENDANT MADE BY ME!!!!
Calling all panda lovers. I have a huge favor to ask on behalf of the people of Wolong China and the pandas we love so dearly!!! I would like to ask 9 other people to go in with me on a shared panda adoption through PANDAS INTERNATIONAL.
THIS SHARED ADOPTION WOULD END UP COSTING EACH OF THE 10 PARTICIPANTS $50.00 USD and we can easily have a suggestion lists of names and a vote to choose the name of our cub. This idea was spawned on the Panda’s Unlimited group today and I thought since this blog gets a lot of pandalicious exposure it would be the PERFECT place to find volunteers!!!
Right now , Panda’s International will be using adoption funds not only for the pandas in the charge of the Wolong Panda center but PI is also helping to send funds to the people of Wolong who were tragically affected by the earthquake.
A partial cub adoption of $500.00 USD includes the following:
• Personalized Certificate (I’ll send copies to all of the participants)
• Save the Panda Poster
• Periodic Newsletters (I will post the newsletter on Graffiti Gossip)
• Pandas International Pin
• Panda Bookmark
• Opportunity to give your panda a “nick name” in addition to the official Chinese name
•A brass sign with your name (we can call ourselves a cool name) and panda’s name at the Reserve
• Framed 8 x 10 photo by professional photographers Mike and Lisa Husar of TeamHusar Wildlife
• Pandas International Tee Shirt OR a 12″ plush panda mom & cub stuffed animal
(I will do a drawing for these nice items from the 9 other adoptees names)
• Periodic photos and updates on your panda from the Wolong Panda Club which I will send to each of you when I receive them
NOTE:..THE ADOPTION PROCESS MAY BE DELAYED A WHILE AS WOLONG GETS BACK ON THEIR FEET. The most important thing is that funds get funneled into the system ASAP and the official naming of the baby etc will happen in due time. Besides, it gives us more time to think of the perfect name for our special cub!
If you would like to know more about Panda’s International please visit the link I posted above. They are a top notch organization with so much on their plate right now. I thought since $50.00 is so much less than $500.00 for an adoption, this might give you all a chance to be a part of another panda adoption here at GRAFFITI GOSSIP.
I also have a panda jewelry design in the works and 100% of the Ebay winning bid will go to Panda’s International…stay tuned!!! Contact me either through the comments on the blog or my email to sign up…remember there are only 9 spots available so hurry!!!!
Huge hugs to all of you …Sandra
ps..the original post stated 8 participants..I meant to say 10…can I plead jet lag…LOL!
