Donation Award 
Default Re: what does that mean

The lion head badge is in memory of Philip. He was the 6 year old nephew of a former WI member. He was a very sick child for most of his young life. WI set up a way to donate to the family to help them offset the financial burden that his medical treatments were causing.

The donation period was around this time last year and ended in May. Anyone who donated to his family received the "in memory of" badge with the lion head (the lion was Philip's favorite webknz).

Philip passed away in August.

Default Re: what does that mean

It's in honor of a very special little boy named Phillip. I think he had cancer, and really loved webkinz a lot! All of us at Webkinz Insider, decided to aide his family as his medications, and treatments were obviously a great sum of money. So they opened up donations.

Some members (like WeasleyKinz, ) decided to lend a helping hand, and donate money. Each member who donated, got the in memory of bar under their short stats, if they had been a contributer. The lion was one of Phillip's favorite webkinz, so that's why it was chosen.

Unfortunately, he passed away sometime in August, and everybody on WI mourns for his loss.
