|Welcome, our goal is to help raise awareness for all types of abuse, please help spread awareness by joining and contributing. |
If you break the rules you'll be given a warning; if you break the rules a second time you'll be suspended briefly, any further violations will result in your permanent ban.
No flaming, spamming, derogatory comments.
Submissions are currently unlimited, but as the size of the group increases, we may limit the number of submissions per day. If the group is flooded with submissions, particularly by one person, we will accept these submissions slowly. If your submission expires you may submit it again.
We only accept art that is related to the awareness and prevention of the following causes:
Domestic violence of any kind
Please make sure your submission is clearly related to one or more of the above causes. Submissions that have vague meaning or appear to be unrelated will be declined. Declinations are based on content, not skill.
Note: Remember, this group is to promote awareness for a cause. Unlike other groups, submissions are not judged on talent, but on relativity to the group and on content.
If you have any links, phone numbers or information regarding these causes please comment, note the group, or note me, IntelligentZombie, thank you!
Prevention of child abuse is a cause close to my heart, as people I know and love have been affected by child abuse, including dear friends and family members. I'm researching international aid and I'll be adding links for different places as I find and research them.
If you have links to anything regarding this subject, or if you have artwork that represents it, please don't hesitate to note me, IntelligentZombie and I'll include it below. My goal is to raise awareness of the help that is available, as well as promote activism and to encourage people to read the literature regarding abuse.
This isn't just about children reaching out for help, but also for people reaching out to help children. Never think you're powerless. There's a hero inside everyone.
