BIG HUGE UPDATE ON WARM WINTER PROJECT!

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 25, 2012, 8:42 AM


GUYS! I have to update on the Warm Winter Project. Now, I completely forgot that with Black Friday, there would be a sale. When I saw the 30% off ALL PRODUCTS sale and the note in the announcement showing that the 10% Premium Member would be added on as well, I figured if I got 40% off my entire order, why not go ahead and order some of the hoodies?

So, I originally intended to order 15 Medium Men's and 15 Medium Women's hoodies, but when I saw that I would have PLENTY left over, I went ahead and put a total of 25 of each in my order. Unfortunately, my order couldn't go through when I received a notice saying there were only 16 of one and 19 of the other. I went ahead and filled the order to it's max and order the remaining 16 of my 50 hoodie goal in another design.

WITH YOUR DONATIONS, THE BLACK FRIDAY SALE, AND MY PREMIUM MEMBER DISCOUNT, AS OF TODAY, SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2012, I HAVE MET AND PURCHASED MY GOAL OF 50 HOODIES.

As for the deviant $taff's offer to match my purchase up to 50 hoodies for free, I haven't sent a message to anyone to work that out yet, considering I was expecting to have to do it a month from now. I have to go finish getting ready for work, but as soon as I get back from work, I'm going to send a Note to someone and as about working that out. And if they can't with the holiday rush, then trust me - That's perfectly fine! It was more than generous of them to even offer earlier this year, and with me getting these off at almost half the price, I would completely understand and be okay with that. I - NO. </b>We, as a community, met our goal a month early.</b> I am VERY happy and excited to receive them to donate this season! And it's getting very nippy, so this is the perfect timing.

I figured this announcement would suffice instead of doing a feature this morning. I have everyone has a FAN-fucking-TASTIC day and that even though tomorrow's Monday, this makes your week, month, rest of the year! like it does for me. Thank you all so, so much for everything you've done to promote, donate, spread the word, encourage me, and just overall help with this in general. I have 5,770 points left over and haven't decided what to do with them yet, but once I figure something out, I'll post a Journal about it. I do know it's going to involve giving back to y'all in on way or another. :giggle:

We did it. Congratulations, deviantART!

Mmhmm! All donated and given to people in need! There's another 50 on the way for free thanks to deviantART $taff's offer to donate 50 more on them! I'm just waiting on a reply in an e-mail about all the details! :dummy:

that's awesome, i'm so happy this went well. it's such a beautiful project, a very beautiful and kind act from you, and i'm glad so many people helped out.
i hope those hoodies will be very warm and cosy, and bring some joy to the people who needs them and gets them, knowing that people out there care.

Hey, don't sell yourself short! Most of the donations came from smaller amounts accumulating over time! If I had relied solely on big spenders, I wouldn't have been anywhere near where I was!

Hmmm, well to be honest, I'm not expecting to get many future donations since I met my goal in full! :O But, as I'm discussing with :devsavagaefrog: right now, I'm considering going between a Giveaway; grating wishes at #dAWishingWell, or doing Secret Santa things with the points left over. If I do get any future donations between now and the end of the year, I'll just do the same with those. :dummy:

(If deviantART had beanie hats, I'd buy those to go along with the hoodies, but they don't. T.T None that I saw, at least, lol)

Beanie hats would be cool. Maybe you should note £deviantARTGear as a suggestion. :)
