My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Pandas International, Littleton, CO, USA
Always fond of the cutest, cuddliest "bear", I was fortunate to meet the founders of Pandas International, Diane and Suzanne in 2001. Discovering their passion for the panda, as I was about to embark on my first trip to China, they assisted myself and 3 companions on a side trip to the Woolong Panda Reserve where we were able to visit what we thought would be a "zoo". Surprised when there we were able to realize how endangered the panda really was and how lucky we were to be able to watch, hold and even feed a cub during our days at Woolong. Returning home, I knew I needed to do more to ensure extinction was not the next phase.
I am proud to be a board member since that time and am thrilled that companies like my employer, MLT Vacations and my husbands, Suncor Energy have also become supporters of this rare and precious animal.
Please donate, volunteer, and ask your company for a donation or sponsorship of a Pandas International event.
You really can change the future by simply spreading the message.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Seeing the donations become supplies arrive to China making a difference in the ability the staff at the reserve have to get the breeding program, feeding and medical needs of the pandas on track is very rewarding.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Change nothing but the amount of donations so that more funds could assist in a faster finding of how to sustain this amazing animal in the wild.
