Help a small family suffering from war in Ukraine by ShimiArt


WE NOW HAVE A GOFUNDME PAGE huuuge thanks to Kreoko!

Hi everyone,

Life got really tough for my friend recently, and this is probably the last chance to help her small family. This girl means the world to me, and I'm trying my best to help her, but since I'm far away from them, I'm pretty powerless alone. Which is why I really, really need your help right now.

My friend and her mom live in Luhansk, Ukraine. Not so long ago a serious war begun there, putting their lives in danger. Now there's no water, no gas and no electricity in most parts of their city, half of the city is damaged and obviously it's not safe to stay there. The family went to Kharkov for a week, but now they can't stay there any longer as well yet can't go anywhere, 'cause the mother lost her job, and now they've almost ran out of money. They need to pay the bills, pay for their accommodation and transport, urgently repay the debts and simply some money for their basic daily needs, after all, and they don't have any - nor the opportunity to earn some in the nearest future. 


As soon as possible, we need to raise $1000 for them.

Raised ~$936 already ($696 + £95 + €60)

We only need $64 more to reach the goal!

- How do I donate?

Donate money to my PayPal. You'll need my e-mail for that, which is (lol, I know, that is one weird name for an email, but it's my side email I had to use for a side PayPal account). My name there has to be Ksenia, which is a name I'm not using anymore and planning to change later in life, but I'm telling you that just in case you get confused. Or you can use the gofundme page 

WONDERFUL people that donated!

In case I accidentally missed your name here, just tell me!

Thank you all so very much! We really don't know how to express our gratitude anymore! That means so much to us, and we appreciate every single piece of support we got from you, you awesome people! <3


$1000 sounds pretty big, I understand, but if you do help, you won't get just a thank you. 

Here's what you can get in return if you wish so:

  • Spread the word: tell your subscribers, your friends or anyone you know, mention this journal in your journal, blog, site or anywhere else and get a mention here and in my thank-you-so-much journal after we reach our goal
  • Donate $1 and get a mention on my page for however long you want
  • Donate $10 and I'll draw you a portrait of your character with no bg/one colour bg/simple gradient bg (+about $7 for each additional character) Charity Commission: Shani for Thereina by ShimiArt
  • Donate $20 and I'll draw you a portrait of your character with a beautiful bg (+about  $15 for each additional character) Kiroho - Commission by ShimiArt
  • Donate $30 and I'll draw you a full body of your character with no bg/one colour bg/simple gradient bg (+about $20 for each additional character)Eany - Kiara and Kovu's Son by ShimiArt
  • Donate $40 and I'll draw you a full body picture of your character with a detailed bg  (+about $30 for each additional character) Sleepyhead by ShimiArt
  • You can also get some art from wonderful people: FlowerOfEden (details here) and Alexeina (details here).

Donated a lot more than that? Maybe want something else? Note me and we'll figure out what I can do for you.

There's no exact deadline, but we have to do this as soon as possible, maybe in a few days or in a week or so. Every single mention, every single dollar counts. Literally ANY help will be appreciated, and we will be so thankful for it.

  • Where do these money go? First to my PayPal, and then straight to the family's bank card so they can withdraw them. Obviously I won't keep a single cent to myself and not a single cent will be spent for anything other than the reasons stated above. We wanted to start a gofundme thing, but it turns out gofundme doesn't work with Russia and Ukraine, so we had to go another way, which is why you're reading this.
  • Okay, but I want some sort of a proof! Note me, and we'll find a way to prove you we're not lying. Also, if you think this really needs a better proof for everyone ('cause I'm not sure) and you have any ideas of possible safe proofs, write them in the comments below, it will be very appreciated.
  • When will I get the thing promised in return? I'll make a list and will do them one by one, trying to do my best to finish everything asap. It will take some time, but I'll make sure everyone gets everything promised to them. 
  • I have some other questions! Note me on dA, comment under this journal or write to if you have any questions or anything to say.


Thank you so so much! And please:
- If you spread a word somehow, if/when I make a journal of how we've reached our goal please please please make sure to delete your journal/post/tweet/whatever or make a new one saying we're done.
- If you donate something, please either add an annotation to your payment saying who you are, or comment here and tell me what you've donated or if you can, comment/note me on what your first name is on your Paypal account for me to make sure it's you so everything's fair for everyone. I'm sorry to ask for extra stuff to do, but there's no other way I can deal with donations and everything and don't get lost in it. I'll also make sure to ask you if you want something in return and what exactly it is.
- Know we're so very thankful. And you'll get a thank you of course. And then another thank you for everyone. And a thank you when we reach our goal. And probably one more thank you. Thank you thank you thank you. Thank you!

AMAZING people that spread the word!

And thank you very much as well! You're helping so much by spreading this, and your kind words and wishes are what helps us get through this! <3


I really hope we can do this. I'm sorry, I wouldn't ask if there was any other way, but unfortunately there isn't. Please help us.

Hope you don't mind a stranger that saw a friend in need sharing the word to help -bows- The war is never easy nor fun I'm glad to at least spread the word as I lay in the hospital bed here -bows- least one can do, I hope you don't mind as said before. Hope you have a great day -bows-
ShimiArt Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2014  Student General Artist
Aww, thank you so much! I have no words to tell you how much I appreciate it. I also hope that you'll be okay, and whatever brought you to the hospital bed, if that is something bad, heals well <3
