:wave: Hello and Thank You to Anyone who has a chance to read my journal.
I know time is precious. :aww: :rose:

~:rose:~ GIFTS ~:rose:~

:thanks:  Thank you to my good friend Kai :iconeuroxtc: for this other most gorgeous gift: Green is Life - For Tea by euroxtc :rose:
Kai is so especially talented, and of course I love this with all my heart! :heart: Kai is such a good friend, but not just because of his gifts, but because of the other ways that a friend can be supportive, and that's just how he is. A real sweetie. :heart:  Kai is also a  fantastic Artist!
Please visit him HERE: euroxtc.deviantart.com/ :heart:

:flowerpot::flowerpot:~~~Special Thank-You's! ~~~:flowerpot::flowerpot:

First of All...
THANK YOU, [AGAIN] to those who have :+fav:'d "Part 2" of THE SHELTER PROJECT, HERE: The Shelter Project: II by TeaPhotography
The Shelter Project was presented first, HERE: If Only: The Shelter Project by TeaPhotography

You may not think a :+fav: is a big deal with a project like this, BUT it IS, because by :+fav:'ing it DOES at least spread the word, and for such a good cause.

:new: From now on, the names of those who have taken The Shelter Project further in a variety of ways, through their various types of features of the Project, :points: on behalf of the project, and Purchases DIRECTLY through Tea Photography© will be placed on my Profile Page with the Custom Box[es] associated with the info. of both Project 1 and Project 2, as well as placed inside, in the Artist's Comments sections of each one. That way, they will always be there, in case one or both Custom Boxes are moved.

I want to give SPECIAL THANK-YOU Features to two wonderful Artists who have recently promoted The Shelter Project on their Journals. I hope they know how much this means to me, and the animals this has the possibilties to help! :aww: :rose:'s :heart:

:note: The Extra Special THANK-YOU Features for DIRECT PURCHASES, are on the Profile Page, on the Left-side. :icondanaanderson: and :iconjenna-rose: ARE now included there with the other permanent/semi-permanent features! :heart:

:iconphilippel: :iconjocelyner: :iconmeljean1: and :iconartbycher: are still there, and remain there, for their business AND repeat business of my work. :happycry: :thanks: :rose: :heart: :thanks: :rose: :heart:

Repeat business, is not even all that a few of them have done, even though that's thoroughly the epitome of awesome. But the repeat promotions, in News Articles by Jocelyne and the ongoing promotion on her page, and Philippe's repeat promotions in his Journals & News Articles with commentary to the work he's received by me... and Cheryl's and Dana's promotions, too as can be seen on their Profile Pages! :aww:
They have worked so hard to help with this, and be very active participants with my work. I never could have imaged, not just better customers, but as if partners, throughout this whole Project. :nod:

The PASSION for COMPASSION Box


I do not need to tell the overwhelmingly devastating story of the people in Japan. :(   It's just amazing how ongoing that this story is...
Here is a LINK to a page that contains all the links to well-known donation places, all in one place!
How to Help Japan: :pointr: news.yahoo.com/s/yblog_newsroo…

You will find on one page links to: American Red Cross, Global Living, Save the Children, Salvation Army, Americares, Convoy of Hope, International Medical Corps., and Shelter Box.

IF YOU CAN, any little bit helps, as always. :heart:
Of course there are always other ways and other organizations to donate through-
please just be careful and do your research, to make sure the place is legit, so that your donations are really going where you want them to go. :aww:


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ :rose:


EDIT: The PayPal Account for this Need, is STILL Active. Thank you for those who have taken an interest in this case. It is very important. :nod:
Feel free to read below:
This is from a NEWS ARTICLE HERE:news.deviantart.com/article/14… written by my dear friend Martha :iconmarthig: who is a very compassionate person trying to help out her friend Light :iconsuicidebysafetypin: who is working very hard to  help her sister have her children back with her. Feel free to follow the links to see why they are asking for donations. The total amount they are in need of is $460 USD.
Of course EVERY tiny bit counts- or at least feel free to help spread the word. :aww:

I've not been in this exact situation, but I have always been on correct side of the law, never in trouble in the least, and yet, I have been in situations where laws were not meant to help, but have hurt and made much more difficult the life/lives of the good person/people involved, rather than defend against or pursue those involved who were actually breaking the laws and performing unethically and underhandedly.
There are a LOT of strange laws like this, and the system is just "funny" like that.  :hmm:


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ :rose:


EDIT: My friend Gypsy could still use some support. It's going to be a bit of a road for her. :nod:
What Happened:
My dear friend Gypsy :icongypsyh: took a BAD fall down a CONCRETE flight of stairs on Feb. 14th, rendering her quite injured. :hmm: She's mostly okay, but recovery is not easy as her body was badly bruised all over, and she's been in much pain ever since, and it will take a while to be well again.
A fall such as this can take a toll on a person's body the way that certain car accidents can, and in some instances may have some lasting affects- NOT saying that the latter would be true for Gypsy.
However, I have been very concerned for my friend, and I am already happy to see she's been getting some support from here on dA, which is wonderful, and is just one reason I do love dA. :heart: :love:
IF you know her, or even if you don't YET, feel free to pop by her page, and give a "Get Well" comment if you wish... I'm sure she'd appreciate it! :D  
[ :note: It is taking her longer than usual to get around dA, due to recovery... ]


:note: PLEASE, feel free to NOTE ME, anytime you hear of someone you know on dA, who is in need and needs the awareness/info. spread, for help to be gathered, OR if you hear of anyone who does good deeds, or who has done a good deed, OR if you have or know of a very worthy cause-- simply think COMPASSION. If it fits THAT bill, I would be more than willing to consider featuring it/the person/the issue, and possibly the art [depending on how or if that relates], HERE- in The PASSION FOR COMPASSION Box! :aww:

Tea sweet girl I wasn't expecting this at all :wow: Your a very beautiful person for the great lengths that you go to make sure everyone is appriciated for what they do. I'm honoured to help you and over time get to know you through DA. Thank you from the bottom of my :heart: for the feature it means the :earth: to me.
As winter melts and spring comes to Saskatcehwan I'm going to be doing allot of work at bringing attention to allot of birds that are on the edge of becoming extinct. Saskatchewan does allot of work here at trying to maintain habitats and areas for these beautiful wild birds...so I'm going to try and bring that forward and into the light here on DA. I'm excited to get out there!!!
Again Thank you Tea :hug: :cuddle:

Hi Crista!!
I know you weren't expecting this, I can already tell by your wonderful heart. :aww: :heart:
I was so surprised to see what YOU had done for me on YOUR journal... :rose:'s
Anyway, it's the least I could do, really... :D
I love what your plans are for birds on the edge of extinction in Saskatchewan... and bringing this awareness out. It's really awesome! I look forward to seeing more, as you get more involved with it. I loved what bird photography I already saw, too. :aww:

I will be in a different area, actually soon, [hopefully... haven't officially announced it, but I've been waiting to be able to do so, actually...] and where I will be is in a MUCH MORE natural environment, away from living in the city, and one thing I am hoping to get more involved with is taking photos of birds, myself, and learning more about them.

[this won't affect The Shelter Project, though... ]

I'll tell you more laaaaater on.

Anyway, thank YOU again, too. :hug: :heart:

Getting away from the city will give you a new perspective on Nature. Being in Rural area is very soothing and you will notice that things will naturally slow down for you in your soul if you know what I mean.

One of the birds I will be doing allot of work on is the burrowing Owls...they are so small and very dependant on abandoned burrows to live in. It should be fun :D I hope you get into bird photography it's allot of fun and you will soon discover you will connect with them. I love it :heart:

Again thank you for your warm :heart: and I look forward to future conversations with you :cuddle:
