Wanting to start up a Project to raise awareness for some endangered species and use DeviantART as the tool to spread the word and help make it happen. Anything helps, seriously and all will be majorly appreciated.
Any points left over will be used as contest prizes in my groups, to upgrade groups I'm an Admin of to make them better places, and to give to other Deviants who deserve premium memberships. Thanks a bunch you guys ^^
