Raising Money - Important

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 6, 2017, 6:02 PM


Update 2:
Well, all the last donations have come in, or so I believe! I just made another donation. This one was very small. I forgot to check the box that lets others see the donation, but I got a receipt in my email. So I'm just providing this as proof:

Thank you all so much for your help and support :heart:

We helped raise $463 so far. I'm still waiting on one more commission payment to come through, about $30; I also was sent another $8. I'll wait to see if any more donations or payments come in, and then I'll donate those in a little batch, also.
But this is the first donation I made. The GoFundMe now has $2,073 out of $5,000.

---------------



So...earlier today Tellastar and I found out that a dear friend of ours, paulmccartneys passed away a few weeks ago. We don't know why, we don't know any details. We looked everywhere for possible answers. However, unfortunately, their passing was confirmed because Frosty found a GoFundMe page that their family put up, in order raise funds either for support or for a service. I'm not quite sure.

So, I'm selling some things in the hopes of being able to help the fundraiser.

I'll be donating whatever money I make to the GoFundMe to support them. I won't be sharing the link because I don't want it to become an invasion of privacy for the family, since there is some personal information written in the GoFundMe. It's just to protect my friend's privacy, as well as their family. They were always careful about their privacy around the internet, and I feel it's important to respect that. Please, leave your negative thoughts and opinions to yourself.

Thank you for your time, and I hope everyone is okay.

*Note: You are welcome to just send a donation, if you don't wish to buy anything but wish to help. You can note me about it and I'll tell you where to send the funds.

Collab commissions that Tellastar and I are hosting:

Important...Please ReadSo, earlier today around 10 am I found out some very disturbing news. One of my friends paulmccartneys passed away around two weeks ago and it's only starting to become known to the public now. We don't know what happened, we don't know why it happened, but it did. Her other friends and I are devastated, since we at first didn't believe it, but this evening I found the go-fund-me page her family set up because of her passing. I will not be sharing this link to keep the family's information private, however Cynderheart and I will be raising money to help her family.  
Steph posted a journal about selling some slots and genos for Draco Stryxs as well as some characters for sale, please take some time to look at them here:

Sooner than later, Cynderheart and I will be opening collab commissions of busts and headshots (I may offer a full body or 2) to help raise money. We will release information as soon as we get everything sorted out, for now I will try t

Devious Journal EntryI honestly have no idea what to say.
I only just found out that paulmccartneys had passed away. No one is sure of how this had come to be, she was only 21. I..am not going to pretend I knew her. I have talked to her a few times, she even drew me a lovely picture of Zero back when I was hurt about people judging my decision on her wings. Every time I read her comments she was so nice. I...am deeply regretful that I didn't get to know her more.
That being said...take the time to be kind and get to know those around you guys, you never know when a soul will be taken from this world.
I hope you rest in peace. I'm sorry to those closest to her are suffering more over this news. I pray you'll find peace and overcome your sadness.
I can't offer a lot right now but anyone who buys these two adoptables:


All the money will go to Cynderheart or Tellastar to contribute to her gofundme. I know it's not much but I want to hel

Okay so I have a reserved slot for a collab commission.  I never got an invoice for it.  So you will get money from me too unless you don't have time for it which I totally understand.  I am still interested in donating even if you can't do the art.
I give you and Kate's family my condolences.  Rest in peace Kate.

I'll let you know again when they open up!

I didnt know her myself, so I cant say that I am absolutely devastated, but I know how hard it is to lose someone and I am just hoping that you guys will be alright.

I can barely afford all the stuff I need myself right now, so unfortunately there is absolutely no way I will be able to give any money.
But the least I can do is spread the word.


If it is any help, try listening to these songs. You will probably cry, but feel better afterwards (I know from experience)

I seriously don't want to commission you nor anyone (I actually feel weird doing so for that... it's like... IDK... feels weird... like not caring, just trading... and I would feel weird having a character bought on such bad occasion :c).

So still, can I donate instead? Whom to?

Certainly. I really apprechiate what you guys do for her and her family. And even though I didn't know her well, it still feels like the loss of a distant family member whom I'd have liked to meet. And as I am part of the DA family, this might not be far from reality.
I wish you good success with the campaign and commissions :)

Im so sorry for your loss sweetie. I wish I could donate to the cause but bills and such. But I will make a journal and post a link to this. I wish I could do more. :( I'm very sorry.

I wish i had gotten to meet her at some point sooner, she was a talented artist and seemed to be a very kind person. No one should ever have to loose a friend, I've got a very close friend too and I couldn't imagine liveing without them. All my prayers and love goes out to you and your friends family. ♡
