This is a cause i want to fight for because i live in Romania which is just south of Ukraine. The war is very close and very real and this Ukrainian family is asking for your help to move away from the war zone. 

They need to raise $1000 and have already raised $269

How to donate! There are 2 ways:

Send money through this fundraiser www.gofundme.com/bp6020
or send money to :iconshimiart:'s paypal otherthings@yandex.ru

:iconshimiart: is offering commissions in exchange for money for this cause as well check the journal below for to see what she is offering

Here is the original journal of the person who is organizing this fundraising for her Ukrainian friend and the info on the drawings she is making for the people who donate


Of course, you can donate without asking for art, it's your choice.
You also don't need to make a huge donation, even small ones make a difference! Small acts of kindness put together can be very strong i believe :D
I will donate too because i want to know that if i were in this situation there would be someone out there who would help me.
Even if you can't donate at all, you can spread the word through a journal or +fav this journal. 
Thank you for reading :hug:

Helping Hands


CRCommunityProjects is proud to announce that we have launched a Mentoring program! Now that it's live however, we are looking for community members who are willing to be mentors.  While our mentor program can focus on art and art creation, we aim to provide support in the community as a whole so we're looking for mentors who are familiar with certain communities and or sub communities and or running projects or contests within them.  
If this sounds like something you'd like to help with, have a read over our program here to see how to apply to be a mentor.  




Planning any Community Projects?


CRCommunityProjects is here to help you with your projects by giving them some extra promotion, or even help you brain storm your ideas so that you can get your project off the ground.  If you are planning any contests or projects, or are currently already running/hosting one feel free to shoot us a note to see how we can help you breathe extra life into it or help you with any problems you may be having.  

Want to be featured in next months round up?  Send CRCommunityProjects a note detailing your project and let us know you'd like to be included in our next round up.

Contest *550+ points*

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 1, 2014, 1:10 PM
So, since I did a contest for some of my OCs, I figured why not do it for my other OCs.

Rules:
-No limit to entries
-You can only draw for 2 OCs
-No combining entries
-You can only win one prize
-Make a journal/poll about the contest before entering
-You can draw one of the OCs in different than normal clothing BUT consult me first to see if it is in character
-If not enough people enter to create a prize, all entrants will receive 15 :points: worth of commissions
-If you have any questions just ask ^w^
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Judging:
I will be doing the judging, and I might ask the opinions of some of my irl friends.
Accuracy > Skill
I will look more favorably upon an entry that has my OCs personalities correctly but is not as well drawn than one that is beautiful but innacurate.
Entries that involve some creativity (i.e. the character doing something versus just standing or a simple headshot) have more chances to win.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Alyssa: :thumb468841907:
Alyssa is the epitome of sweet and innocent (even though said innocence means that sometimes she pisses people off without realizing it). Born blind she met Clover at a young age and soon became quite dependent on her. Before that her parents were essentially her world as they were extremely protective of her. Adding to her sheltered life was the fact that she never was bullied or anything of the sort because ever since she was in school she had Clover to protect her from any hurtful comments. Alyssa loves loves loves cotton candy and adores small fluffy animals. She keeps her eyes closed most of the time, but when opened, they are a very pale violet. She is 21 years old. 

1st place (unlocks at three entrants): 75 Points + 25 Points worth of commissions + watch + llama
2nd place (unlocks at five entrants): 50 Points + 10 Points worth of commissions + watch + llama
3rd place (unlocks at seven entrants): 25 Points + watch + llama

Magenta: :thumb471969753:
Magenta is a smeet (child irken) and if she was human, would be 12 years old. She wears long sleeves covering her hands (I haven't had a chance to post her ref sheet yet DX) and can be described as uptight. She was created through a program sanctioned by Tallest Red and Purple. The program was to create many smeets from the D.N.A of the "best" irkens, such as the Tallest and the most successful invaders. The resulting smeets (all named after colors keeping in with the tradition that Red and Purple said of having the Tallests be named after colors) were put through a training program to have them learn to be succesfull invaders/tallests. When the smeets reach full maturity, the tallest(s) will become future Tallests and the rest Invaders or Elites. TL;DR the program is one to gentically engineer an upperclass of irkens. Magenta fully believes in following the law or any rules to a letter and is a perfectionist in all tasks she takes on. She abhors anything she deems to be "unsanitary" and doesn't get along well with those who are carefree/hyper.

1st place (unlocks at three entrants): 75 Points + 25 Points worth of commissions + watch +llama
2nd place (unlocks at five entrants): 50 Points + 10 Points worth of commissions + watch + llama
3rd place (unlocks at seven entrants): 25 Points + watch + llama

Lyn: :thumb465322204:
Lyn is well...an adrenaline junkie of sorts. She enjoys being scared and is constantly on a hunt for horror movies, creepypastas and haunted houses. That being said, she does have a stronger stomache than most when it comes to gore or scary things, which is part of the reason she looks for scary stuff; she wants to see just how scared she can be. Lyn also loves amusent parks and more specifically the rides there. Other than that she likes comfy clothes and lazying around. A favorite pasttime of hers is scaring her friends by sneaking up on them and jumping on their backs or forcing them to watch horror movies with her. Lyn's friends know not to open any links sent to them by her.

1st place (unlocks at three entrants): 75 Points + 25 Points worth of commissions + watch + llama
2nd place (unlocks at five entrants): 50 Points + 10 Points worth of commissions + watch + llama
3rd place (unlocks at seven entrants): 25 Points + watch + llama


Grand prize (one winner chosen from all the categories): 100 Points + 1 month feature on my page + 25 Points worth of commissions + watch +llama

The night amazing in all of its glory, the stars glistened, fire flies twinkled in the tall grass, accompanied by a cool breeze that tickled Donnie’s neck, it was beyond words for him to even try to describe.
 
Spring… fresh and new, with an earthy aroma in the air, which lured the purple clad turtle to stay outside to relax under the old oak tree located on the farm house, that Donnie called his second home.
 
(It can’t get any better than this.)
 
Oh how he loved visiting the place, time away from the noisy city, leaving all his problems, worries and fears behind.
 
With a pleased smile, Donnie closed his eye

Fandom: TMNT 2003
Donatello will remove the goggles that mark the rim of his eyes. He will quickly glance at his homemade clock; informing him of yet another sleepless night. He will stand, a few old bones cracking, and habitually make his way to the kitchen. He'll make his usual no-sugar coffee and from there, he'll continue this not-so-normal day.
As usual, he'll walk by his bickering brothers. He'll ignore their venomous words. Not hear the hatred that plague their words like raging thorns.
He'll walk past his cheerful brother. He'll try to ignore him. When that fails, and when the suspicions arise, he'll smile that fake smile of his. Make everyone believe that everything was alright.
Later on, he'll listen to his brother for the umpteenth time about some threat. How some enemy is trying to terminate them. Destroy them.
And even later, they'll be on a mis

F.   Deep Pools of RedDonnie screamed in rage and in sadness, he never experienced so much pain in his life. After the deadly yet dangerous fight with the Kraang AND the Foot Clan, he had bruises and small cuts on his arms. A bloody head and a deep wound slashed across his plastron. It was hell for him, he felt like he was going to die from a acceptable amount of blood. 
Donnie stopped screaming and gasped for air, clenching onto his stomach. He needed to get to the lair fast, but the lair was a far of a distance for him because of his bloody body tearing his life apart. It was too much for him and he had to ponder about it, something he was really amazing at.
He thought about his love of his life April, his brothers and his father; remembering the great times with them. As he thought that Donnie scolded himself for pondering like that, he needed his rest. He wasn't thinking right.
Donnie lied down on the cold hard ground, trying to close his bloodshot eyes, sleeping into peace. He could

G.    Fire on the Mountain-(One Shot Maybe)TMNT FicDonatello's footsteps fell silently on the snow as he walked out of the sewer entrance, leading away from the city. Everything seemed to start to fall apart a few months ago;after the accident. April & Casey had been visiting them, Casey and Raph had been goofing off  near the lab doors then Raph sent Casey sliding across the floor into Donnie's Lab table now they had a fifth turtle on their hands. It hadn't been his fault and yet everyone seemed to be blaming him. At first everything was okay  Donnie needed a canister of  mutagen to make a retro injection. It didn't take them long to find one but when Donnie finished that batch of retro mutagen, and injected Casey  it hadn't worked ; in fact it had  mutated him further, causing him to become almost primal in nature.
He set about trying to make it right spending Hours, days weeks in his lab not eating, or sleeping then April had the nerve to try and tell him he was taking so long on purpose,  it had been a

Summary: Don’s genius is pushed to the edge in the protection of his family
The world was a great black pit, cold and cruel to those that were different from the norm and mutated turtles were certainly different. Don understood this harsh truth, probably better than any of his brothers did. He didn't just know that their enemies would like to capture them and exterminate them; he knew all of the painful and agonizing ways that they would do it too.
The scientist in him knew every procedure that would be used in order to find out just exactly he, his brothers, and his father ticked. Not only would it hurt to the point that they would be begging for death but it would be an incredibly slow procedure too.
In the past few months it had been made clear to Donatello that this was the fate that awaited his small family. Almost every time they ventured out of their home they were set upon by Foot ninjas, Purple Dragons, and random citizens that just feared what they

Donatello looked at the book he held in his hand. The flow of images from the repair manual never pausing for a moment. It all came to him perfectly crisp and clear, so intricate and fascinating that he only glanced at the occasional images to confirm he labeled parts he had only seen so far correctly. His face lit up with excitement at the new useful concepts. What he learned now could make a difference next winter! He read on eagerly, devouring the pages, each concept fitting into the next. Only slowed by stains and the need to use a lantern to read the fine print, he continued into concepts he wanted to start work on next week. The notepad at his elbow filled up rapidly with rough print outlining the steps needed to make repairs. With a little luck and a bit of supplies already at hand, the

April was standing on a roof top, watching over the big city. She saw something most people would think was some kind of light show but she knew better. She ran and jumped from roof to roof until she was on the same roof as him.
Donnie was ice sculpting, something that looked a like a snake or a lizard. But then she saw the wings and realized it was a dragon. Kinda like that dragon she had seen in a fairytale. A snake-like body, short but strong looking legs and big, strong, awe wings. And from the sides of its nose was a long mustache.
"You're getting better at stealth, I'll give you that." She jumped when she heard him talk. She had been looking at what he was doing and had almost forgotten that she was there. He turned around and looked at her with smile. And she got a full look of the dragon and it was a beautiful in every detail. She stepped out of the shadows and walked up to him.
"Heh, thanks. I guess I've gotten better in my training." She looked at the

S.   FearFear
If you asked Hamato Donatello if he ever felt fear, he would say you were insane. Emotions such as fear should be unknown to a rational mind such as his. But as he tinkered in his lab, Donnie realized that even he couldn’t deny that he knew fear all too well.
The thing he feared most of all was letting someone down, not being good enough. Not being as skilled a ninja as his brothers. Not worthy of April’s love. Not smart enough as a scientist to keep them alive. These fears kept him awake at night. One wrong move, one mistake, and he could lose it all.
He had failed before. Like with Timothy. No matter how many times people tried to convince him Tim brought it on himself, he knew it was all his fault. And he still felt responsible, even indirectly, for Kirby’s mutation, and losing April. Donnie was eternally grateful that it wasn’t forever. But it could have been.
Donnie sometimes worried, irrational as it seemed, that if he failed, not only could his loved
