GIVE A LITTLE - GET A LITTLE :thumb43135661:
Most of my eBay auctions are set up to donate 10% of the final sale prices to various non-profit organizations that help the world in all kinds of different ways. So if you find something you like in my auctions, please bid for good causes! This way, you end up with things you want, you help me, and you help people make a difference.
If there are any non-profit organizations that you would like me to add to my upcoming eBay donations, please leave the link in the comments of this journal entry. I'll keep your suggestions in mind for my future auctions. If I really like a suggestion, I'll probably make a stamp for your cause as well, and I'll give you credit at FantasyStockAvatars in the description of the stamp with a link to the org. Maybe we can make make the world a little brighter.
Each time I update my journal I like to feature an artist that has used my stock in their art. This week's featured artist is...
Quna recently celebrated her first year anniversary at DeviantART! Yuo can read and respond to her thoughts about the dA experience here. But this isn't the only reason I'm featuring this artist. Her gallery is fully of gorgeous photography, fractals, traditional art, literature, and she's even used my stock in her beautiful photomanipulation art. She also has a very cool hair tutorial, which makes it look so easy that I may actually try digital coloring again. ...Very inspiring!
Other Art by Quna
ArtistsForCharity is a group run by senior members of dA that make it possible for you to donate your prints to charity! The current charity that seems to have the most focus is The Autistic Self Advocacy Network. Read their journal for more details about how to get involved.
From the group's FAQ:
"...everyone from core staff ($), all the way to general member (~) can donate artwork."
