dAWishingWell's fundraising

Mon Aug 24, 2015, 6:50 PM by Stygma:iconstygma:


Thank you to all amazing deviants who donated to TheWishingWidget! All those points will go to granting wishes. But since we will need a constant source of point donations to grant at least one core membership each month, we will now offer you some new services in exchange for points.

If you can't donate points or grant point and membership wishes, don't worry! There are plenty of non-purchasable wishes you can help grant, like giving llamas, making features or watching deviants. Your time is just as precious to us! See if you can grant some wishes in The Showcase.

Wishes granted by dAWishingWell


Every month, we will continue to grant core membership and point wishes. If we are short on points, we will grant less or smaller wishes. And we will continue to send one core membership wish to Moonbeam13.

We will lower the amount of expensive wishes granted and we will grant them only if we have enough points for the membership/point wishes and also the supergroup/contest/print wish.

This is the new schedule for expensive wishes :
  • January: 1 supergroup
  • March: 1 contest
  • May: 1 print (on hold until DeviantArt fix their bugs)
  • July: 1 contest
  • September: 1 print (on hold until DeviantArt fix their bugs)
  • November: 1 contest
If no special expensive wish is listed for the selected month, it could be replaced by another type of wish to be granted.

Financing packages


If our fundraising services are popular enough, we might be able to give more core memberships in the future! To help you compare, we will include here the free package you can already get.

Wish packages


You can buy a Recurring wish or a Premium wish by sending points to TheWishingWidget. Since you are allowed a regular wish as well, don't forget to mention the type of wish (Regular, Recurring or Premium) when sending us your note. If you are not sure that your wish follows our rules, you can send us a note to have your wish reviewed before donating points.

Regular wish
  • Regular wishes are free.
  • Regular wishes last until the end of the calendar month.
  • Regular wishes are listed on the Showcase for the duration of the wish.
  • Regular wishes are featured once in one of our weekly wish feature journals.
  • Regular wishes cannot be changed.
Common perks and rules of all the paid wishes (recurring and premium of any length):
  • Unlike regular wishes, you don't need to renew your paid wish every month! It is done automatically!
  • You will receive a note when your wish will expire.
  • If you renew your paid wish, you can keep your wish as long as you want. No need to change it like the Forever wish!
  • Your wish will be featured in one of our weekly wish features once a month.
  • If you choose yourself the deviations to feature (up to 3), or if you ask us to not feature any deviation, you wish will be featured every week instead! 
Recurring wish:
  • Price: 3-month: 75 points - 6-month: 150 points
  • Recurring wishes cannot be changed for the entire paid period, unless it is granted in full! It can be changed if you renew it.
  • The deviations to feature can be changed once a month if you provide them.
Premium wish:
  • Price: 3-month: 125 points - 6-month: 250 points - 12-month: 500 points.
  • Premium wishes are listed on our front page.
  • Premium wishes can be changed once a month or if granted in full.
  • The deviations to feature can be changed once a month if you provide them.
Paid wishes, once granted, can simply be replaced with a new wish that will get the same treatment as your initial wish, and will last for the remainder of the paid period.

Advertisement spots


You can buy an advertisement spot by sending points to TheWishingWidget. If you are not sure that your deviation (journal, advertisement image, poll or forum) follows our rules, you can send us a note to have your deviation reviewed before sending points.

Why are we selling our advertisement spots? dAWishingWell's goal is to advertise and grant wishes. Because we are subjecting our members to unrelated advertisements, we feel it should support our primary goal and ultimately help us grant more wishes. We will make sure our members know that those granted wishes were possible because of your generous donation!

Advertisement packages:
  • 1 journal featured in Whisper's Friendly Bulletin - 1 time: 50 points (free and automatic for affiliates), 1 month: 100 points, 3 months: 200 points
  • 1 journal featured on our front page (Newsboard): 1 month: 100 points, 3 months: 200 points
  • 1 journal featured on both places: 1 month: 150 points, 3 months: 300 points

General rules about the advertisement packages
  • Open to every deviant/group abiding to DeviantArt's and dAWishingWell's policies.
  • We will accept journals, polls, forum posts and advertisement images only (an example of an advertisement image is an image containing commission guidelines).
  • Every submitted piece of news must be DeviantArt related (we will not promote anything outside DeviantArt).
  • This is not limited to community-oriented content; we will also feature personal news. Just remember that your piece of news might be viewed by a lot of people and some of them might not be so understanding of your personal issues.
  • Every submitted piece of news must follow our submission policies (see dAWishingWell's rules). A journal can feature mature content if this content is properly flagged and represent a small percentage of the journal. An advertisement image containing mature content will not be accepted.
  • We will remove a piece of news if:
    • The link is broken
    • The content is out-of-date
    • The account is deactivated
    • The piece of news was updated and is no longer following our rules
  • If the piece of news must be removed before the end of the feature period, a reimbursement for the unused time might be possible depending of the circumstances like:
    • The piece of news was rejected or removed by dAWishingWell
    • The event was cancelled
    • Circumstances outside the deviant control (sickness, broken computer, moving, etc.)

Together, we can make wishes come true! :heart:

Please refer to the group rules.

We are not accepting seniority and deviousness award wishes or wishes regarding mature content, hate, trolling, call out, asking for votes to win a contest, lottery, raffles/giveaways, donate points to a commission widget or anything against DeviantArt policies.

I don't know what you mean... People can enter contests and challenges to get points to donate, but it's not the point of the "Fundraising Content". Fundraising contents are stuff you sell.

This is so wonderfully done, so well organized and laid out. :iconcatlaplz:
The new ideas/rules and reasons behind them are perfectly understandable. These are creative ways to help us continue to do the best we can in granting wishes.

Thank you for putting this together, Stygma :heart:

So if your wish is free, you only have till the end of the month to fulfill it?

It can be renewed the next month by sending a new note. But yes, the wish no longer exists at the first of the next month.
