FROM CARRIE PHILLIPS, OUR ADOPTION COORDINATOR FOR THE YIN YANG TRIBE! THANK YOU!!

You can read more about the  process of adopting Bai Xue HERE

Hi Sandra,  Please share this update and adorable pictures of Bai Xue with the Yin Yang Tribe. Such a cutie!

BAI XUE

Now your baby’s weight is 112 kg.  Every day it has bamboo of about 15 kg, 2,400 g Wowotou, 400 g carrot, 400 g apple, and 1 kg bamboo shoot.  It has a good appetite.  Even though it is very hot these months, it has no influence on its appetite at all.  But it has less movement.  Most of the time, it stays in the den to for rest and sleeping. It goes into the playground to walk when it is cool.  It has a good relationship with its keepers. As soon as it hears keepers are calling it, it would go to them.  Very cute.

Thank you Yin Yang Tribe for your adoption!

And below you will find my latest painting I just finished yesterday, available right now as art cards and a 2011 poster style calendar, which also echoes the styling of the Chinese Scroll calendars we see all over in Asia as well as Chinese Restaurants in the U.S.  The colors are rich and saturated yet with a softness and glow to bring out the best in this sweet child with her panda cub

We are back from our trip to the panda and moonbear centers in China, as well as a wonderful warm side trip in Thailand and I, have so much to tell I hardly know where to start.  If you have been following along on my blog at  https://graffitigossip.com you know all about the panda I chose for our next group  adoption via PANDAS INTERNATIONAL….a stunning (formerly) wild panda named Bai Xue

ABOVE: ME HAVING MY PHOTO TAKEN WITH “WU JUN” WHO IS TAI SHANS NEW NEIGHBOR

I chose Bai Xue for her unmistakable black “beauty mark” on her muzzle and her history of being a wild child, as she was the panda who disappeared from the panda center she was at for 5  years, then miraculously returned!!  Just one look at her Bifengxia clay dipped bum and you know this girl marches to the beat of a different drummer.  How endearing can one panda get….and to top it off she is a wonderful mommy at the age of 20 years it is estimated.

I have so much to tell you about all the pandas, moonbears and elephants we met along the way,  but this update is  for our beautiful Bai Xue, who is asking  for your help in completing this group adoption, as we still need 250.00 of the 500.00 required by Pandas International to finalize the sponsorship of our girl.

OUR ADOPTION DEN INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING MEMBERS SO FAR:

Eunice Messer    Wendy Bouzid         David Keen         Bonnie Young       Diana Hillygus

Lori  Love        Lois Dubs                        Patricia Markby                 Stephanie Smith

I decided to extend the deadline until April 1, 2010, and you may easily pay 25.00 or more for your adoption pledge via Paypal or a check or money order.

Regardless of how you choose to pay, each of the contributors will be receiving a downloadable panda artwork I designed just for our group with a value of 45.00.  You may print this artwork as cards or a make a framed print for your own use, as a thank you from me for your generosity and caring.

This very special panda art design will not be sold anywhere at any time, so it will be a collector’s item.  I will reveal the design as soon as our adoption is finalized.

Thank you all so very much for your support of the group adoptions at PANDARAZZI. My dream is to continue to be able to provide a way to help others be a part of these unique adoptions of the China pandas by making them affordable for all who wish to participate.   A $500.00 adoption can be out of reach for many caring panda people who would love to be involved. Being part of the “adoption den” you really see your donation dollars in action!!

By providing a platform at PANDARAZZI where we all can shake down our piggy banks and pool our resources as a team, we all benefit from one another’s involvement, in turn, help each panda we sponsor with plentiful bamboo, medications, round the clock TLC by the nannies and keepers.  Not to mention the AWESOME updates and photos which Carrie and the Bifengxia photographers provide us during the course of the year!!

BAI XUE SENDS HER PANDA LUV AND THANKS YOU ..XIE XIE !!!!!!

Hugs, Sandra Miller
