Save The Pandas

 My friend me and sold cupcakes on the street and raised twenty-seven dollars, and are sending it to a company who will use it to help pandas!   Why did we chose pandas?  We chose pandas because their an endangered species and are adorable in my opinion!

 Pandas homes are being destroyed to create more farm land, pandas do not only depend on their homes for  just shelter but for food.  If their homes are destroyed the pandas could go extinct and we don't want this to happen, think what would it be like with your kids never getting to see a panda, or a black bear, in the zoo or to be able to watch the national geographic channel and see  footage that was only shot a week ago, so in conclusion help save the pandas!

Join the Many Trying to Help the Gowanus

The Gowanus Canal is naturally thought of as a dump.  There is this Italian man who owns a pizzeria and has a hope for the Gowanus that it could be like Venice with mini villas, cafes, and since he was born in Italy, he wanted it to remind him of his home.

My art class from school joined A.G.A.S.T. (Annual Gowanus Artists Studio Tour).  Visit the official A.G.A.S.T. site at

Each fourth grade class made six strips of scenery.  Our teacher Miss Kimball put them on canvas after we had collaged our strips.  For more info about this project go to
We designed what we hoped would be the future of the Gowanus Canal.
