Aaron picked Giant Pandas for a first grade research project. We read books and watched videos. Our family fell in love with these wonderful animals and visited their exhibits at the San Diego and National Zoos.
Aaron decided to ask for donations instead of gifts at his 7th, then 8th AND now 9th birthday parties! The themes change over the years with his interests, but he always finds a way to include the pandas – as a Jedi, a basketball MVP, or a wizard!
Thanks to generosity of friends and family, he collected $517 this year, raising over $1400 since June 2016 for Pandas International.
