I hope all the American folks reading had a great thanksgiving! I hate to spam your inbox, but I have ANOTHER wonderful deviant who is offering something cool for the fundraiser!
is offering you a FREE ATC/ACEO if you spend or donate $25 or more in the fundraiser (until Nov 30th)! This is in addition to an ACEO from *MoonsongWolf (until Nov 27th). If you donate more than $25, you'll also get journal features from myself, =TVD-Photography and ~caybeach...that's exposure to over a collective 6000+ deviants! PLUS, the freebies you'd get that are mentioned in the journal below.
If you need another reason to order soon, the holidays are creeping closer and closer. The earlier you order, the better chance you have of getting your order before Christmas! There's a lot of mail floating around this time of year, after all.
Thanks again for your AMAZING support!Update 2:There are only couple days left for *MoonsongWolf's ACEO deal, which ends on November 27th. If you're interested in this deal, act fast! Also, I'm aware that it is Thanksgiving in the U.S. right now. Although I already had mine in Canada, if I am thankful about anything right now, it would be for all the support I've had here. Thank you all, including those who have made all kinds of generous contributions and those that (hopefully) will in the coming days.
If you needed another reason to support the fundraiser, let
tell you about an awesome ACEO deal!:"From now until November 27th, I will also add a headshot ACEO card (art trading card) of the character or animal of your choice for anyone who donates or purchases prints worth $25 or more! This is slightly more than my usual commission rate, but please keep in mind that you will also be receiving some fantastic animal photos and journal features from several DA members. Plus, 100% of the money will be going toward helping FREELAND."Update 1:
have both offered a journal feature
to anyone who donates $25 or more (in addition to one from myself. If you would like to offer similar incentives, please let me know!
Also, I have to give a huge tiger hug to
for featuring my fundraiser in their journals. If any one out there would like to to the same, it would really help spread the word! Many thanks for those who have +faved the journal too!
I've been dealing with dark times over the past few months so to have the opportunity to help tigers and other wildlife like this is something I want very bad. I'd honestly offer sexual favours if it meant I could raise enough, but that's too much of a legal grey area for me.
About the Fundraiser
Many of you know that I try to be as active as I can in wildlife conservation, particularly helping tigers. I've traveled to Thailand, India and Sumatra in my quest to have an impact, but the time since returning from Asia have been very quiet. I've graduated from university and have been desperately searching for opportunities to start my career and help species in need. The fact that I haven't been successful and have not been able to put full-time effort into conservation has been something that has weighed heavily on my soul...but I hope in the near future things will change.
After years of shopping my resume to those who would take a look, one of my previous colleagues from FREELAND Foundation, a human/wildlife trafficking non-profit in Thailand, became interested in my skills and experience. I was extremely fortunate enough to be offered a full internship with FREELAND Foundation to help them in tiger and elephant conservation
, complete with on-the-ground assistance to field teams. It would be completely voluntary, but it would allow FREELAND in executing programs and help communicate its work to a wider audience. There is also the possibility that it could translate into a paid job at some point in the internship.
Over the past months, I've saved very little, focusing on paying off student loans. I would love to take advantage of the opportunity, but the fact remains that I need to raise money to help FREELAND
. It is for this reason that I'm starting a fundraiser to raise enough money to donate at least 6-months of my time in Bangkok.
I know that I've done fundraisers and print sales quite a few times, but I hope that you'll consider my work again this time around. You have already been incredibly generous and have made my dreams come true before. For that, I'm incredibly grateful. To have the support I've had from you has been amazing and I never take it for granted
. I also believe it to be an honor that people would consider giving my work a home on their wall.
