58/100 - Charity

For my very first photo of the year, I wanted to try to do something to capture the goal of my Warm Winter Project for 2012. I have several resolutions, but my main one is this - Raise enough points with the help of the deviantART community so that I can buy 50 hoodies to donate to my local shelter for children and adults who are homeless and in need. I also plan on getting blankets and other warm clothes to go with it, but the hoodies are the main goal and foundation of this project.

I'd like to keep them warm next winter and I know that these hoodies are awesome, and I thought this would be an amazing way for the dA community to come together. So here's a photograph of my, holding out a hoodie for someone, the way I will be when I meet that goal and go give those 50 kids hoodies, blankets, and other warm clothes.

I also submitted this to ^thorns Community Complaint Challenge project. If there's a complain you have about the Community, then DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT THIS YEAR!!! I felt that our online family has been quite discontented lately with all the dArama and hate flying around, so I felt this an appropriate entry. I don't care if it wins, but I do care if it gets even the tiniest bit of exposure, and I also care about advertising her project to everyone who watches me, because hopefully, it'll inspire all of you to make a commitment to a better dA community as well!

UPDATES CONT. - Warm Winter Project: 2012UPDATE 7 - As of Friday, June 1, 2012, we have officially broken the 100,000 points mark! I can now say that we have less than 60,000 points to go! This is so amazing, and we;re only on the cusp of being barely halfway through the year! Everyone's coming together so amazingly and so graciously, it's such a wondrous and incredible thing to see! Thank you all so much, and we ARE going to make this happen! UPDATE 6 - As of May 18, `TimberClipse's Point Doubler reached it's goal successfully! I received a whopping 10,000 points for the project and got so much closer to our goal! Thank you all so much for Zev for setting up the doubler, every single sponsor, and each and every person who donated to reach the match goal! UPDATE 5 - As of March 21, 2011, we are already halfway there. The current time is 7 30 pm and we are, at the moment, EXACTLY AT 80,000 points! Talk about teamwork and gettin' it done, guys! This is so amazing and wonderful

Complaint Challenge Contest - Extended!

Update:  Deadline Extension

New deadline:  February 10th at 11:59 PM EST!

I could use an extra week before judging, and my poll suggested people could use a little more time than that. I've decided to extend the deadline by 10 days. Don't forget you must note me your entry to be eligible for prizes. I know I saw some floating around. I do need an official entry note! You may find these other reminders helpful:  http://fav.me/d4mk8a6 If your entry is not in this folder, you are not confirmed and should contact me:  http://thorns.deviantart.com/favourites/47897505 If you have questions, or needed help, and I haven't fully helped yet, NOTE ME ASAP. If I haven't responded I misplaced your messages. (I know there is definitely one I cannot find.) I apologize and would be appreciate a reminder. ^thorns We got our complaints out in 2011. Now, 2012 is about doing something productive with them. I am not going to sit and grumble about my

Yeah, way back in November. That's how I knew that this is the one I should get when I began the project.

This is pretty great, and the meaning behind it is awesome. I kind of wish you had put the hoodie in a box to show that you would have many more though. Also, I think your hands are a little too over exposed...Your hands are part of the message as well after all. :heart:

Ugh. The box is a great idea. >.< Wish I hadn't been so focused on making sure it was folded properly (I always hang up hoodies). Hmm, when I meet my goal, I'll be sure to keep that idea in mind when I have everything and get to give it out and credit you in the description. Thank you for that idea! :squee:

I also didn't notice my hand til today. :saddummy: They were like that in the original picture, no edits needed; Sunlight doesn't like mah skin. Figured since today was the second and it was too late, I might as well go ahead and use it. :cries:
