The following Comments are from Other Friends of Tea's
The Shelter Project is something that is very dear to Tea. She has taught many of us that it does not take much to support our 'furry friends' As I got to know Tea I found through her hard work and determination, we could do just a little bit and it would go far. I ordered some of her shelter project cards. Not only are they inexpensive but they are beautiful. The photography, which several are taken at the shelters themselves, are very personable on these cards. Many are of cats and dogs are waiting for a new home. A little goes a long way when you support this project. And I know, as her friend, this is not just a project but a life long passion.

Today I would like to take the time to tell you about a wonderful person who's soul objective is to help animals through the shelter project.
For those of you who don't know who she is yet here on DA, let me intorduce you to She makes cards with images of animals from the:
The South Coast Humane Society: www.deviantart.com/users/outgo… where she currently volunteers. From those sales she give a portion of the moneys to the shelter which helps with the costs of caring for the animals until they can get adopted out to a loving home. The rest of the money that she makes then goes right back into buying supplies to make more cards.
You can also buy cards without animal images on them and pick some images from her galleries.
So please go and check out her and help her save more animals who desperately need a loving home!
Tea is an animal's best friend, she takes such loving photos of each animal which showcases the animal's beauty and helps increase the chances of being adopted. Her photos help raise awareness of shelter pets also.
Tea has a heart of gold and I adore her as well as many others.

I sometimes support Tea with points for the shelter and make an item in my journal. This is what I think about the project;
The Shelter Project is a project that has a place in my heart, the way Tea cares about these animals is very special. She's a kind person, not only for animals but for people too.
First of all I want to say some words about Tea herself. For me she seems to be an angel who fell to the Earth by some mistake. I always admire and respect her love for the nature in all its glory and sorrow. She is eager to help those who suffer and support those who need it. She is an amazing person and friend! I know there are a lot of shelters all over the world and many people try to help them by volunteering but I know no one who does it in the same way and with the grace of Tea.
The story about cards:
In the first place I wanted a birthday gift for my dear Lin aka who loves animals, especially cats. In my town we also have a shelter for animals and when it's possible I donate money there so I thought why not to help Tea to gather money for her project and get wonderful cards for Lin's birthday! That is the story!

I came about Tea's Shelter Project when I saw one of her deviations about her cats and dogs -- and since I love animals in general I chose to feature the project on my profile page.
There was this cute little poodle I'd love to adopt if it just were possible for me to have pets on my own -- and if wouldn't be over-sea and so very far away.

I ordered a set of cards from Tea to benefit The Shelter Project. The cards were absolutely beautiful! Some of the cards have poems that are so very touching. One card in particular titled "Home?" fav.me/d2cv99v almost made me cry! I believe it sums up the whole purpose of the Shelter Project.
Tea has some new cards for Christmas and I plan to order again for the holidays. I also have a link to The Shelter Project on my DA page to help promote this very worthy cause.
Tea is a part of my heart that I just simply could not do without. I "met" Tea when I first joined dA, several years ago. She was one of my very first dA friends. We have since found that we have so very much in common, and often comment to each other about our "Parallel Lives." Tea gives with all of her heart to anyone in need, whether it be an animal or a person, and whether she has enough for herself or not. She's the most beautiful person I know. Inside and out. She's all heart, and like I said, she has a big piece of mine!
"The Shelter Project is a wonderful, very humanitarian project for a very worthy cause, and Tea's initiatives and effort in creating and sustaining it it are awe-inspiring"
This poem portrays a dear friend who knows how to make a difference : Tea
I Have Done Something
I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter...the cast-offs of human society.
I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness, and betrayal. And I was angry.
"God," I said, "this is terrible! Why don't you do something?"
God was silent for a moment, and then He spoke softly, "I have done something," he replied. "I created you."

"Saving the life of one animal may not change the world, but the world will surely change for that one animal"
Thank you Tea by your example of kindness and compassion ... for that GOD created you!
As says Dalai Lama :
"Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them."
Since I know Tea, I was amazed by her personality and style.
I also was amazed by her determination and power of work, her beautiful capacity to make a virtual world closer to the reality that we all live every day.
Tea is a beautiful and talented young woman who have a wonderful good soul and which
everything she touches, touch with love and this is a real gift.
Looking at Tea's photography you can easy see love, love for her family and friends, love for nature, love for the joy of life, and love for animals, love for animals regardless of their condition.
My last sentence says in very few words, many things about the character of a person.
I think many people love animals, but most of us, we do this unconsciously, selfish!
Each cat, or dog, or rabbit, or monkey, must be healthy, cute and eventually come around us, only when we are well rested and happy...
Tea, by Shelter Project, shown to all of us, What Means Generosity and Unconditional Love!
Also she made another wonderful thing, in the name of love, Tea, managed to eliminate the boundaries between this world where very few of us have met face to face and the world where some of us can easy meet, and this is really wonderful, because this means Trust!
Who really knows Tea, know that every word I say is true and above all, know that beyond a photo,a project, or a postcard, Tea is a real person who with devotion Do Something!
I think it's a great cause; people should take the responsibility for the environment and most certainly for animals who are depending with their life on care of man... in my journal I have a section titled "for the good cause" and T E A is there with each week's update, to make more fellow artists see what she's doing and either donate to the shelter or help spread the word... I sincerely hope her efforts will be successful - from her part it's a selfless act that surely deserves support
Be sure to check back here each day as their may be some more added!
