HEY GUYS! THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT! Please take a minute to read this!
Some good friends of my brother have started a campaign to help raise awareness about the Rio Grande de Santiago--one of the largest and most polluted rivers in Mexico. They want to raise enough money to travel to Mexico and kayak the river from source to sea and film the trip. If all goes well, they want to make a short film of the expedition and enter it in film festivals in Mexico and the U.S. in order to show people how bad the pollution has gotten, and what they can do to help.
See their starter campaign and watch their video to learn more: www.indiegogo.com/projects/hea…
The Rio Santiago is one of the largest river systems in the country, and over 15 million people live in the river's watershed and are affected by the pollution being dumped into the river. Millions of people in the U.S. are affected too--lettuce, tomatoes and other food exports are grown in the same watershed and are then sold to us. This doesn't just affect the people of Mexico... it affects all of us.
>>So where do you come in?
These guys don't have the money or resources to do this themselves. They need as much help as they can in the form of donations. So, I'm opening special commissions and every penny I make will be donated to this project.
>>What you're getting from me:
For $15, you will get a colored and shaded character of your choice on either a plain, transparent, or semi-textured background. You have the choice of either cell-shading or smooth shading. Examples can be seen below:
If you would like to purchase a commission to help fund this project, please note me!
>>Don't have the money to donate?
No problem! Everyone who advertises this in their DA journal, on their Tumblr account or FurAffinity account or wherever gets the most traffic will be entered in a raffle to get a free colored sketch from me. Just link me to where you posted it and I'll put your name down. The main point here is that I really want to spread the word so I can get as many people to help with donations as possible.
Also, if you have money to donate but also don't want to spend the $15, you can donate whatever you can directly to them!
This really means a lot to me and I want to do what I can to help. These guys need a hefty chunk of change to make this happen, but it's absolutely for a good cause and these are really good guys too--you'll never find a group of boys more dedicated to making the world a better place.
Thanks again for reading all of this and PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD AND/OR DONATE!!
