My name is Joanna, I’m 8 years old and I live in South Carolina (USA). I love pandas. I became interested in Giant Pandas when my brother and I were watching Mei Mei in the Born in China film. For Christmas I received a symbolic adoption of Hua Mei and I was so excited that I borrowed all of the Panda books from our local library! I’ve learned about red pandas, too! As I figured out how endangered giant pandas are, I wanted to do Pennies for Pandas to help. In a couple of months we raised $56. I used my birthday money and friends donated when they saw my Pennies for Pandas bucket. Learning about Pandas and animals is so much fun, I like to cut out their pictures from magazines and tape them on my wall!
Thank you Joanna for your help saving the giant panda.
