"Ultimately, I want Spirit Day to make just one person feel little bit better about his or herself, to feel safe enough in their own skin and to be proud of who they are" - Brittany McMillan In memory of the young LGBT people who lost their lives to suicide, Brittany encouraged her friends to wear purple on a day in October -- a day that came to be known as Spirit Day. Since then, GLAAD has helped turn Spirit Day into a global event that inspires millions of individuals, celebrities, TV personalities, media outlets, companies and schools to wear purple in a stand against bullying.

I am very happy to announce this year's deviantART Staff Appreciation Week team of volunteers. These are the awesome deviants who will be collaborating until August to bring you a dASAW that you won't soon forget! :dummy: 

I would like to cover a few things before I announce the selected deviants: 
  1. A total of 25 deviants applied for this year's dASAW! (every application was reviewed individually :D)
  2. In total, 68% of the applicants DID NOT help with last year's dASAW, while 32% did!
  3. If you are not selected, that does not mean you are excluded. There is limited space (10 spots) for volunteers, and unfortunately the decision is difficult when you need to cut 15 people. You will still be able to participate even if you are not a volunteer, and we might even ask you for your input or for some help later in the process! ;D
 

Thank you again! Here are our volunteers this year. :happybounce::happybounce: 

* this indicates that this deviant is a veteran of last year's dASAW and is being asked to return as a mentor for new volunteers. 


Once again, thank you to everyone who volunteered! If, for some reason, a chosen volunteer declines the invitation, I will move onto the other applicants who remain. Do not be offended if you were not chosen. Please congratulate this year's dASAW volunteers, and let's all look forward to a great week this August! :happybounce:

I can't wait to see what you guys have in store this year. :) Sorry I missed the application period though. I'm not sure if you'll be using the same chatroom for events, but I've added this list of volunteers to the chat. :nod: I won't be in there anymore however, so I won't be interrupting any of your plans. :D

Unless you're using a different room, in which case, okay :dummy:
