Group Info

RULES
1. Respect members and staff of the group. Any inappropriate behaviour from anyone will result in a warning. If it continues, the person will be banned. We would hate for this to happen, so please abide by this.

2. No foul language of any kind. This coincides with respecting everyone. This is a group created for charity; it's not a bar.

3. Staff reserve the right to decline any art submitted to our Gallery and Favourites. We will consider each piece fairly, however, before we make this decision. Please respect this.

4. As all art pieces that get donated to the Gallery will be printed, it is important that submissions relate to the group's aim. Will someone affiliated with a certain charity group appreciate this piece? This isn't a group to gain exposure of your pieces.

5. Any art forms beside literature are accepted in the Gallery. Literature and Journals can go in the Favourites.

6. Anyone can join this group - you don't have to be in Australia! While most of the charities we aim to help are Australian, we will also donate to International charities where possible. Anyone with a good heart and who wants to help our cause is welcome.

Hello and welcome to all!


Welcome
Greetings to all the new members, and thanks for joining the cause. Any way that you can help will be greatly appreciated.
Remember that there is a list of roles in the Welcome blog entry.


Updates
You may have noticed some small changes, such as the implementation of a new rules system, as well as a couple of new Affiliations.

The rules have been updated to maintain some specificity and to make everything as clear as possible.
Please do check out our Group Info on the main page to see them, and feel free to ask if you have any questions or concerns.
These rules may be added to over time as necessary, as more members join and the group expands as a whole.

As for the Affiliations, two new groups have been added.
Charity-Commissions "is a group for deviants who donate all or a part of their commission money or material to charity or do something in exchange for commissions." While this isn't an Australian group, it's a fantastic one and great for artists who want to help out charities while also gaining exposure.
Canberra-Arts is exactly that: a group specifically for artists in Canberra. While it has a small number of memberships, it has good potential to expand. Go check it out if you're in the area!
Affliation requests and inviations are seriously considered, but are always welcome. If you run an Australian group or a group with a good cause, don't hesitate to send over a request.


Admins and Members
New members are always welcome here, and you don't have to be from Australia.
It would be fantastic to be able to get this group off the ground and running as it should, but help is needed.

This brings us onto Admins.
One or two Admins to help run the group would be extremely helpful, especially ones that are able to conduct fundraising DevMeets.
If you are interested in helping out as an Admin, please contact myself, LifeIsZealous, to apply.



If you have any questions regarding any of the information above or anything else to do with this group, comment below, on the group's main page, or contact LifeIsZealous.


Spread the word, be charitable

Hey there,
I am a local Adelaide artist. I am a contributor of Adelaidians and have stumbled on your un replied comment. I am sorry for the late reply, I will try and reply as to the best of my knowledge. The group I have recently joined is not very active and I am trying to shoot it with hype again.

I am also a community member of a local radio station here in Semaphore, South Australia. What I will tell you now may come as a little bit of a shock- the reason people may not join your group is because as your description says- (in a nut shell), that anything you et given will be donated to charity. These days people use other forms of donating to charity and it's not done through deviantart. Many times people are doubtful of where the money they give will go...If I was to give you $10 who guarantees it will go to a charity and not some one's pocket?

Working with the community doesn't have to be hard and you learn a lot of how things should be structured properly and professionally, there for I suggest that you contact these organisations and get them to approve your group here- there for giving you an account with them and the money or anything that you get will be tracked and there for go to them..

You can pretty much spread the word and not take any money on to your personal account...I know you want to help and it's great that people have joined and that it's going good. :) It shows you care. But I see it from the business side, office work and finical side.

If you are a local Adelaide group then give the team at wowfm a call or email you can find more info at wowfm.org

We have professional community oriented people there who know how to do this right and can assist you with any thing even if it's advice.

Is there anyway for me to mention Angels Goal in Tasmania.
Its an Anti-Bullying charity I am working for on facebook. They are actively trying to prevent bullying in schools and with your help it could become a world wide support system for those who are bullied. [link]

No thanks required. It's what this group was made for.
If anything, I should thank you for asking about it.

Non-Australians can join. It's mostly targeted at Australians since it is a cause for our country.
