PANDAS INTERNATIONAL
April 15, 2010

Following the Sichuan Earthquake in China I organized 4 adoptions of pandas to raise money for the Pandas International panda and humanitarian projects. Through pooling resources from many donors to create "group adoptions" 10 people were able to participated in each adoption. I called these sponsor groups my " ADOPTION TRIBES". Carrie and Tobi who do all the paperwork and bookeeping as adoption coordinators are INCREDIBLE. They have given me so much help to make these unique adoption experiences accessible and affordable for many who couldn't swing an entire $500.00 partial adoption on their own. Since these original 4 adoption tribes I have organize many more group sponsorships as well as donate my artwork as often as I can for fundraising auctions and T Shirt designs for this non profit. My most recent donation was a newly designed logo for Pandas International which I was invited to create. Very flattering to say the least!. I have to say this was the most incredible project I have ever worked on because my heart was totally in it. Suzanne and Team Hussar Photography were a delight to work with and it all went so smoothly from conception to the final tweeking. This is typical of every single project or transaction I have had with this organization. True professionals dedicated to the core to protect, preserve , and educate about our Giant Pandas. I can't say enough good about these incredible people who are doing such important and difficult work. The pandas are fortunate indeed!
