My name is Ashleigh. Pandas are my favorite animals! My Aunt got me a symbolic adoption for my eighth birthday. The day before my ninth birthday I thought “Wow, has it been a year already? My adoption ends tomorrow!” So Mom and I went on to the Pandas International website and found out about the Pennies for Pandas program. That’s when I decided that my life goal was possible. I used two different fundraising methods. 1. I set up a jar in my gym (Rock Solid Gymnastics) and got many donations. 2. I asked friends, family members, and neighbors for donations. I ended up raising $136.00! At the end of my fundraising efforts I decided to do this every year! I love pandas and want to keep helping!
Thank you Ashleigh for helping the giant pandas!
