I don't know about you guys, but one of the reasons that I love deviantArt, is because of the feeling of community that I get when I visit.  I have made some really good friends here who share my love of Doctor Who.  I don't think I could have found that anywhere else.

But behind all of these digital smiles and manipulations of pixels, we are real people.  I think connecting with those people is what really makes this place special.  And now a fellow Whovian needs our help.  

I found this piece entitled, "The Fiddling Doctor", and the story behind it really moved me.  A Doctor Who fan, Ryan Jones, has been hospitalized and his friends are selling t-shirts of that image to raise money for him.  Now, I don't know about any of you guys, but Ryan is lucky to have true friends that would do that for him.  We should all be so lucky.

I don't know any of these people in the real world, but I can't help but feeling a camaraderie with them.  I wanted to spread the word about what they are doing and encourage my watchers to do the same.  Buy a shirt if you can afford it!  (I'm sure they will make great xmas presents for that Whovian in your life!)

I know how easy it is to log on, type a few comments, and then go about your day.  But I'm hoping that a few of you will be moved like I was and help if you can.  It's what the Doctor would want us to do.  :D

Whovians United!!

You guys rock SO much! I'm new to the Whovian community myself (thanks to Ryan), but I've been overwhelmed with how much love and generosity is in this fandom. There's There's a quite a few versions of the shirt too on that website (one for men, women, and the design in Tardis Blue and "Master" black. :P ).

I would like to think of Whovians as a closely knit group. I'm glad we can help. Tell Ryan we are thinking about him.

I'll try to spread this around Facebook and LJ as well. :)

Whoops, your link is 'not found'. You might want to try again :) But yes, that's one of the main reasons I love to be online is all those FANTASTIC Whovians. Wish I wouldn't have stopped roleplaying, made some great friends that way :/

Yup, working now! I don't have any extra money to buy it but I shared it on my facebook page with over 500 members so maybe some will get it! :)
