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!

Dear =srag linked your journal to us, asking if we could help...
I do like to thank you for your caring, and i suggest UNRWA [link] , Oxfam [link] , and Mercy crops [link]

Donations will help them re-building Gaza, as well as enabling daily requirements for those who badly affected by the war ...

Thank you dear for your caring.. :rose:
FantasyStock's avatar
Thanks for your suggestions! I added UNRWA, Oxfam, and Mercy Corps Emergency Response to three auctions selling paper. If I have time later I can maybe make some stamps for you as well. I'll try to get to that this evening if I can.

Deviant, Tina and her husband Mike could use financial help, so the bank will not forclose on their home. [link] There is not much time left to raise the money and any donation helps.
FantasyStock's avatar
Oh! This is sooo personal that I wish I had money to chip in. My husband has been laid off for the past year, and we've been just barely able to make do. I understand how tough it is for people right now. I fav'ed the article. If my eBay sales yield enough money to help with our rent, I'll be sure to drop them an extra $10, but I can't promise!!
H3-six's avatar
Of course, that's understandable, just getting the word out to people can help.

Does the Salvation Army count as a non-profit organization?
FantasyStock's avatar
Yeah, I checked, and they appear to be registered as a non-profit. I've made a simple little stamp for you to use to promote this cause: [link]
mmpratt99's avatar
Wow! Thank you. I'll put it up in my journal.
FantasyStock's avatar
You're welcome! :rose: This was the first suggestion someone gave me here that I can find at eBay, so I listed some red paper with a donation to SA.
Dr-Murdock-Kawfi's avatar
I think its so awesome that you do that.
FantasyStock's avatar
Oh, yeah! UNISEF!! :) I ws surprised that I didn't find any stamps already made for this organization. Here's one I made that you can use in your notes to friends to help stread the word about them: [link]

You're welcome! :)
