PANDA BLISS CALENDAR by Sandra Miller

Well panda peeps…we had a tie on our cub name vote.  Above is the official result but I had one more vote for Yong Xin that I needed to count because the member’s computer was not working with the  poll daddy program.

The votes are in!!  So with 8 votes total, we had  a 4/4 tie for Yong Yong and Yong Xin.

This morning I put 10 slips of paper in a bag……5 with Yong Yong’s name on it, and 5 with Yong Xin’s name and did a random drawing……….Yong Xin was the winning name and is now our baby’s nickname.

This name also means Eternal Heart which goes well with our theme too.

I will get this info to Carrie today and we should be receiving our adoption certificate soon!!

I just finished updating Yong Xin’s page with a journal update and will add pix as I get them from the Panda Breeding center via PANDAS INTERNATIONAL

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THIS FUN ADOPTION!!! This is only the beginning…….I will be in China in February over Valentines day 2010 to take photos of our Yong Xin and all the other beautiful cubbies at the panda breeding centers.

And remember to keep educating  all your friends and acquaintances that pandas are ENDANGERED….I had quite the shock at a recent wine tasting to find out that the average person thinks pandas are commonplace and safe from extinction.  The high exposure pandas have in the media and at zoos is so incredibly good, but does contribute to a complaicant attitude as well..”.If you see them all the time, they must be plentiful”

Quite the contrary.  With only  1600 pandas left…COUNT EM…ONLY 1600…….the fine line between survival and extinction was made very clear with last year’s Sichuan earthquake.  With diminished bamboo groves from the mudslides………it could have been much much worse for the wild pandas.  Pandas were given another chance thanks to the dedicated panda centers and organizations like Pandas International…..and people who care so deeply  like  the members of our  wonderful ADOPTION TRIBES

We had a harsh warning…now we need to keep spreading the word so future generations…our children and grandkids can see with their own eyes the beautiful  and living pandas of China.  What a tragedy if the only panda our great grandkids would ever be able to see is a taxadermy model in the museum and videos of a once living species.

I will be adding a link in the sidebar at Pandarazzi for those of you who might want to participate in another group adoption in the future.  When we get another 10 participants …probably in the fall of 2009, we can get another 500.00 to the pandas who so desperately need our help.
