Due to some amazing final donations... The full 10,000 points have now been donated to =ToxicAlice92
Thank you all for your support, I am so glad that this was completed with such great support. Thank you to everyone.
Please fave and comment on this journal to help others see it!
I almost never buy "extra" things, for me this includes items like points
from deviantART. However, that has changed as of today.
Earlier this year, =ToxicAlice92
announced a project
On my profile, in the top right, there's a donation pool. I want to spend the entire year raising up enough points to buy 50 Vertical Zip hoodies to donate to the nearest homeless shelter at the end of the year next year.
But that wasn't it!
UPDATE 2 - I also received a note from $Heidi earlier today (1.4.12) letting me know that deviantART would like to match my donations on their behalf!! That means when I reach my goal of 50, I will be receiving 50 more hoodies from deviantART for my cause, or 30 or 40, depending on how many I'm able to purchase at the time!!!
This project is absolutely wonderful, and I immediately donated. But I wanted to do more.
So, I worked with a number of deviants to make a sponsoring program...
I got a number of donors to pledge a certain number of points. With those points, I created a collection on my page.
If we collect the 5,000
points, the donors' points and the collected points will all be sent to =ToxicAlice92
. A total of 10,000 points!
By doing this instead of just donating independently we are going to be able to collect 2 times the amount of points and raise awareness for her project.
However, I also believe that art is an important part of any community event on deviantART. Because of that...
All donors will be featured with 2 pieces of art from their gallery! No donation is to small!
- Then click on the donate button on the lower left hand side
No, however, if this is successful, I would like to do it again. So if you'd like to donate to help, donate now, but if you'd like to sponsor next time around, please send me a note! If we get enough, I will do it again!
The donors with number of points pledged are listed below:All pledges are currently collected. They will be donated immediately upon collection from the community
- 2,125 Points
- 2,000 Points
- 525 Points
- 250 Points
- 100 Points
In order to make this as transparent as possible:
- only donations that are given in the widget on the front of `TimberClipse's page will be counted.
- The donation to =ToxicAlice92 will have to be made in multiple parts due to the size. However, all parts will be visible in her widget to show that your points have been delivered.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
