    Meet the Panda Nation - Trina Lim

    Trina Lim was inspired to do something different for her 36th birthday. She no longer had the space to receive birthday gifts and was looking to receive something more meaningful to her. This inspired her to align her birthday with her passion for wildlife and their habitats. She customized her first Panda Nation fundraising page with a heartfelt message to her friends and family, and also reached out to her social media network and others through SMS to support her cause! Although shy at first, she managed to raise nearly $2000! In turn, she thanked her friends and family with panda and polar bear cupcakes to enjoy! Trina truly went above and beyond!

    Ann takes to the streets of Manhattan!

    Long time runner, but first-time fundraiser, Ann Huart, signed up to run the United Airlines NYC Half last year with Panda Nation. “On race day, it really made a difference. I’ve been running races for years, but this race was really special. It felt wonderful to know that I raised funds for a good cause and had so many people support me along the way.” Ready to take on the challenge again this year, Ann bravely signed up again for the race. She held bootcamp-style exercise classes to raise funds for the event and brought in more than $3,500 over the two years! Thank you, Ann, for partnering with Panda Nation to make your miles even more meaningful.

    Meet the Panda Nation - Tanner Holland

    He may be just 10 years old, but this Panda Nation fundraiser is already changing the world. Just before his seventh birthday, Tanner was inspired by a story about rangers protecting species in the wild, and he wanted to help. He created his first Panda Nation fundraising page, and asked friends and family to give to his cause in lieu of birthday presents—and he raised over $900! Tanner then decided to make it a birthday tradition, and so far he’s raised over $4,000 to protect the planet. Way to go, Tanner!

    How to Rock a Marathon Fundraiser

    Thirteen was the lucky number for Nicole Bennion, who successfully completed the 13.1-mile Rock ‘n’ Roll Seattle Half Marathon earlier this year. Her recipe for success? Panda Nation! “Running to save species and our planet is great motivation to keep moving,” she says. Nicole signed up for a Panda Nation fundraising page, and encouraged friends to support her marathon effort by giving to WWF. Her fundraiser turned out to be as successful as her race—she blew past her first fundraising goal and in the end raised over $1,500.
