Tecalia started loving pandas when she received a toy panda for Christmas in 2014. She started reading everything she could about pandas, and memorized all the U.S. Zoos that house the giant pandas. She has a ton of knowledge about pandas now, including the fact that they are on the endangered species list. She decided that she wanted to help, so for her 9th birthday she decided to host a fundraiser where her friends could bring donations instead of gifts. Tecalia hand painted her invitations using a stencil. She was really excited to raise over $100 for Pandas International.
Thank you, Tecalia, for being such an amazing supporter of the pandas!
