Flowers for Charity

The Charity
Drop by Drop is a novel project created in support of clean water and sanitation systems in Kenya through various initiatives. Its concept extends far beyond that of a simple fundraiser. In actuality, it embodies a lifestyle philosophy. It embraces the idea that true progress is accomplished little by little, person by person, drop by drop. As youth, we are powerful beyond measure, and positioned in manners which allow us to effectuate change in our local and global communities.
The Project
thegnat learned how to make little paper flowers about a year or so ago and realized how beautiful they look on a desk or a night table. They also make great little gifts (she's given several "bouquets" away to friends and they loved them). So here's what she's offering.
A $10 donation will get you 5 individual flowers with your choice of colour from the list below. $5 will automatically go to

Working Together to Make Change
Canada
Drop by Drop is a novel project created in support of clean water and sanitation systems in Kenya through various initiatives. Its concept extends far beyond that of a simple fundraiser. In actuality, it embodies a lifestyle philosophy. It embraces the idea that true progress is accomplished little by little, person by person, drop by drop. As youth, we are powerful beyond measure, and positioned in manners which allow us to effectuate change in our local and global communities.

Personal Quote: "If an idea is not at once absurd, then it has no potential."


When starting Drop By Drop, I had a meeting with my colleagues, where were established the initial direction of the project. It was without much thought that I brought up the prospect of working with DeviantART, an organization unheard of by the majority of my partners. After educating them about the DeviantART community and highlighting the creativity it embraces, we all became very excited about planning initiatives with DeviantART. Natalie Juhlke, a fellow deviant and close friend, expressed interest in assisting in the project from the beginning. Since then, Natalie has brought big ideas, inspiring and improving upon existing plans created by Drop by Drop. The Drop By Drop team would also like to thank Fiona, fourteenthstar, for all the direction, advice and support that she has given to our team.

However, we regret our mistake in creating an account on DeviantART. When it came time to choose a username we saw that "Drop By Drop" was taken, and we needed to make an alternative. Immediately, we thought of the username "DropByDropCharity." By doing so, we unintentionally produced a misinterpretation that was not noticed at the time. Including the word "Charity" infers certain assumptions that do not hold true. This account is still in existence, but is no longer the main account of our project.

Drop By Drop is a philanthropic project created to raise funds for Free the Children's Adopt-A-Village program, while concurrently promoting leadership and youth activism. Drop by Drop fully intends to become a registered charity through an official application to the Government of Canada, a process that is currently being completed. However, we have yet to become a separate entity, and in the mean time, it is wrong for us to in any way allude that we are a charity.

We apologize for our mistake and hope that this error will not damage future partnerships. Drop by Drop is sorry for any confusion that may have resulted, and we understand the breach of trust with deviants. We would like to stress that changes are being made to resurrect the situation. Starting January 6th, 2009, the dropbydropcharity account will be officially moved to our new username that better reflects the iniative: DropByDropProject. We ask you, as you have shown interest with the project, to show your support on this new account by watching it and participating in its future activities. This same letter will be posted on the present account, and all future information will be directed to this location.

The Drop By Drop Team recognizes its mistake and is prepared to work to correct any consequences of our actions. Presently, Drop by Drop is not working with DeviantART, Inc on any official iniatives. However, we still would love the opportuntiy to work side by side with the DeviantART community, together raising awareness in the capacity of one person to make an active and noticeable change. Drop by Drop is not currenlty a charity, as we've previously stated, but it does not mean that our initiatives and actions do not reflect those of a charity. Our team is dedicated to providing clean water and sanitation systems to those of need in Kenya. Regardless of our official standing as a charity, we as just as committed and passionated about making this change.

Thank you for your continued support,

Project Manager/Co-Founder, Drop By Drop

Liaison to DeviantART, Inc, Drop By Drop

P.S. We just want to inform everyone that the CSS Contest Winner will be posted on the new account, DropByDropProject, as soon as possible.
