TreeLovers :icontreelovers:
This awesome group is holding a great year-long project:
"ART FOR TREES"  
:icontreehuggerplz: Art for Trees - project:iconspringtree-1plz::iconspringtree-2plz::iconspringtree-3plz::iconspringtree-4plz::iconspringtree-4pl5:
"When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. The second best time? Today."
- Chinese proverb
2014: This is the 3rd year of the project. There are many people supporting it, featuring it in their journal and offering art. BUT... There have been NO trees planted for it in the last year (I don't count mine). So, instead of talking about it, how about getting up and actually planting a tree, if you are able to? There is a lot of wonderful art waiting for you as a reward!
Trees are important, valuable and necessary to our very existence. It's not too hard to believe that, without trees we humans would not exist on this beautiful planet. Trees are the largest and longest living organisms on earth. To grow tall the tree has become a miracle of engineering and a complex chemical factory. It is able to take water and

deviantHEART :icondeviantheart:
This Group I love to work in that promotes Positivity,
promotes various Positive Projects around dA...
It is where I found, and continue to support:
"The Warm Winter Project"
:aww: UPDATES CONT. - Warm Winter Project: 2012UPDATE 9 - As of Sunday, November 25, 2012, I WAS ABLE TO MEET AND PURCHASE MY DONATION GOAL OF 50 HOODIES thanks to deviantART's 30% off Black Friday sale as well as my 10% Premium Member Discount. Congratulations to us and thank you to everyone who helped out!
UPDATE 8 - As of Saturday, November 17, 2012, we are at 125,125 points, with only 34,875 points left to go! I was able to purchase 2,000 points a moment ago to put directly into the pool myself. My original intent was to get 8,000, but I ended up working less than I expected this week and was unable to, but as of my next paycheck (in two weeks), I will be able to purchase 8,000! That will leave us with 26,875. And after TimberClipse's AWESOME point doubler, like the one that helped out and did so amazingly earlier in the year, that will be another 8,000, leaving us with only 18,875! And his doubler is already halfway full with much thanks to rainylake for immediately putting 2,000 points in
:aww:
and ways for matching points...
:la: To Help ToxicAlice92 - PROJECT COMPLETED:new: :omg: Due to some amazing final donations... The full 10,000 points have now been donated to ToxicAlice92 :iconsupereagerplz:
Thank you all for your support, I am so glad that this was completed with such great support. Thank you to everyone.
:new: Please fave and comment on this journal to help others see it!
I almost never buy "extra" things, for me this includes items like points :points: from deviantART. However, that has changed as of today.
Earlier this year, ToxicAlice92 announced a project
On my profile, in the top right, there's a donation pool. I want to spend the entire year raising up enough points to buy 50 Vertical Zip hoodies to donate to the nearest homeless shelter at the end of the year next year.But that wasn't it!
UPDATE 2 - I also received a note from Heidi earlier today (1.4.12) letting me know that deviantART would like to match my donations on their behalf!! That means when I reach my goal of 50, I will be receiving 50 more
:la:
:iconeagerplz: Blurple's 'Warm Winter Project: 2012' Challenge:star: A :+fav: goes a long way! :star:
If you didn't know, ToxicAlice92 started the
Warm Winter Project: 2012
at the end of last year. It is her goal to raise enough :points: to purchase 50 devWEAR Hoodies to donate to a local homeless shelter at the end of this year. When deviantART heard of this they offered to match her purchase. That is a possible total of 100 hoodies!
To help her toward her goal I present to you a challenge.
I am now collecting :points: on behalf of ToxicAlice92's project. I will personally match this amount
2x
up to 5,000:points:.
This means that your donation of...
1:points: becomes 3:points:
20:points: becomes 60:points:
100[Points] becomes 300[Points]
..and so on for a possible total of
15,000[Points]!
To add to that, I will be randomly giving away subscriptions to donors (of any amount) without notice. :D
Details
This challenge ends on June 6 @ 11:59PM EST or when the 5,000[Points] limit h

:bulletblack: The South Coast Humane Society here, on the SW Coast of Oregon IS keeping me very busy these days... I do the photoshoots of their animals for adoptions for "Adopt-a-Pets" and "Pets-of-the-Week" for the newspapers, plus I work on the photos for the animals and upload them to their page at Petfinder.com. The same photos go their fb page. I share SOME, of these same photos with you here on dA! :heart:

It's always busy! :nod:


:iconcatearsplz: The Shelter Project! :iconcatearsplz:
REMEMBER- The South Coast Humane Society here,
DOES welcome The Shelter Project: teaphotography.deviantart.com/… as an official fundraiser of theirs. :aww:
:boogie: :party:
They are happy to have this, and help of any kind. :aww:

:flowerpot::flowerpot: EXTRA 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

:new: Most recently I have updated with: On Behalf of The Shelter Project by TeaPhotography as a SPECIAL Thank-You to ALL dA Affiliates of the Project. :heart:

Thank you to all who continue to :+fav: the Project to at least simply spread the word, about helping animals in need. :heart:

Even a :+fav: is a big deal with a project like this, because by :+fav:'ing it DOES at least spread the word for a good cause. :aww:

An Extra Special Thank You to the Following Artists who have recently featured for the FIRST time, or re-featured The Shelter Project on their Journals or Profile Page. :love:

[Sandy always finds creative ways to support The Shelter Project.
She recently surprised me with a project that can be found on her Profile Page-
a COMMENT BOX from my friends about THE SHELTER PROJECT, :omg: :blushes:
complete with a feature of various shelter animals...]

:pointr: PLEASE NOTE: SANDY, HAS HER OWN PROJECT, which also involves CARDS, called:
"The Card Project"
:boogie:
She states, it goes to pay off her horse, and advertise her photography, BUT she also plans to donate to a great cause called RDA: www.rda.org.au/

For A LOT more DETAILS and PRICING, PLEASE see her PROFILE PAGE, on down the LEFT-SIDE! :nod:

I am very excited for Sandy, and super proud of her!
:heart:

:iconsecrets-of-the-pen:
I was recently contacted by this amazing artist to draw some of my photos- most of them likely to be from "The Shelter Project" which in addition to crediting me/my work, she said she'd be mentioning the project, which would further support it of course.
But in learning that HER work, would be going to make special cards for a charity, and one that I STRONGLY favor, I was 110% enthusiastic! :D
Here is the FIRST result!! :heart:
Day 116 - ACEO Drawing Project by secrets-of-the-pen = If Only: The Shelter Project by TeaPhotography
About the Charity:
My 366 Project - ACEO Sketch Cards for CharityFor every day of 2012, I will be drawing one ACEO sketch card. Every single one will be for sale - ALL proceeds to be donated to charity at the end of 2012.
My charity of choice is a local foundation called Alternatives to Violence, who is currently raising money to build a safehouse. This safehouse will provide a secure shelter to men, women and children who have recently escaped physical and sexual abuse.
With the safehouse, 312 individuals every year will receive crisis intervention, counseling, safety planning, advocacy and shelter.
Together, through art, we can help make a difference.
:bulletwhite:The Plan:bulletwhite:
♥My cards will range from $5 to $11 depending on subject and detail.
♥Only my costs(Etsy fees, Paypal fees, Materials) will be deducted and the rest will go to Alternatives to Violence(ATV) at the end of the year.
♥I will share every card I create  - that means a new piece of art to see and share every day, through my DeviantArt, F

Day 113 - ACEO Drawing Project by secrets-of-the-pen



Those who CONTINUE to feature, have featured other times before, or also maintain a Promotion of The Shelter Project on your Profile Page or Journal- Thank you for your ongoing support. :heart::heart::heart:

:note: 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© are 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.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS KEPT AND MAINTAINED PROMOTIONS  OF THE SHELTER PROJECT ON THEIR JOURNALS OR PROFILE PAGES! THIS IS MORE THAN I COULD HAVE EVER EXPECTED! :heart: :heart: :heart:

:note: The Extra Special THANK-YOU Features for DIRECT PURCHASES, are on the Profile Page, on the Left-side.

:note: :iconkurios-kat: is there for the OTHER project that we worked on together, where she sponsored the 5-piece set of framed prints of my images for the Shelter, as asked of me by the manager to donate, HERE: fav.me/d3cxhwn . While not the same as The Shelter Project, "The Shelter ART Project" STILL went to benefit that SAME Shelter! :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 imagined, not just better customers, but as if partners, throughout this whole Project. :nod:

I know Earth Day 2012 was April 22nd., but those who know me best, know how important it is to me, and that really it is a reminder of how to live Earth Day as a way of life .

We may not believe that any one thing that is "wrong" with our planet has happened because of one individual. In other words, we may feel that "it's not OUR fault that things are the way they are"... and while it may be true that not any single person has caused garbage upon the lands, over-use of materials that are running out, oil in the oceans, water unsafe to drink, food unattainable even in countries that you'd think could attain it, deforestation, ozone depletion, global warming, animal extinction & endangerment, domesticated animals that have now been left to their own devices that are now multiplying exponentially, and are homeless, sick and needy... on and on and on-

What happens to one part of our Global Life Community, affects us all. We are as if a tapestry- when one thread of the blanket that is ALL LIVING THINGS, is pulled loose, we certainly do ALL feel it, whether it is consciously realized or not.  We are, in fact, quite affected.

Whether as an individual, we actually caused the problem or not, is NOT the issue. We have a shared responsibility to our Global Community to work together to improve the areas that need help, here on our shared home of planet Earth.

It is a matter health and healing, of current, and future survival for us all, and for our loved ones to come.

There are lots of things each of us can do, to help improve the world, even right in within our own reaches...
even seemingly little things... help in BIG WAYS!
