|Dylan's reaction to winning.|
I was so excited that I called Dylan's teacher and asked if I could come share the good news with him during class. When I walked in the room, his eyes began to water. He knew why I was there. After sharing the story with his classmates, they all applauded and began asking him how they could help too.
When creating my Pinterest board, I didn't want just pictures of tigers - I wanted to show more. I found pictures of tiger cakes, tiger jewelry, artwork, and more importantly pictures that truly showed the plight of the tigers. These animals are being hunted by poachers in such a cruel manner. This is what I wanted to show, and in the process I was brought to tears. I found a new love for tigers that I was able to share and hopefully inspire others to share too.
|Our Pin It For Tigers Board|
Shortly after starting the Pin it for Tigers board, Dylan and I visited the San Diego Zoo Safari Park for Endangered Species Day. This is when Dylan found his love for tigers and decided to do his part.
Together, Dylan and I will continue to share our love for tigers and all other endangered species - because we now know that even one person, no matter how old, can make a difference.
