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.
