Ella had a birthday party in June and asked her friends, instead of giving her a present, to fill up the Panda Coin Bank to raise funds to care for the Giant Pandas. Her party was held at a craft store where she and her friends painted a wooden frame and decorated the frame with panda stickers. They used the panda postcards that came with the PI birthday package to write out a thank you card and cut it so it fit in the frame. They also used the stickers and bracelets from the birthday kit to fill goody bags for the kids to take home.
Before the kids enjoyed pizza, chicken nuggets, and cake, Ella told them all about the plight of the pandas and how Pandas International is helping them. Together the kids raised about $109!!!
As a special treat from her family, Ella went on a road trip to visit the pandas at Zoo Atlanta.
Thank you, Ella, for being a Panda Protector and for helping to care for our beloved bears!!
