    I kind of want to make a charity action to help with the search for cures for Psoriasis and Eczema. This is important to me because I have had severe plaque Psoriasis since I was five. No kid should have to go through the looks and comments thrown at them. The customs would all be based on the looks of WfC. What are your thoughts on this? Any feed back is welcomed.

    Also, does anyone know which charity to donate the money to? There's a couple of organizations that show up when I search.

    Maybe talk with your parents and see if any of them helped your family out when you where a kid. Also do research on the different charities. You want one that has where most of the money raised goes to research and not operating costs.

    Good to hear someone caring about eczema. That's one hell of a thing to have/go through.

    I wish you the best of luck, may I suggest a theme of, um, acid/cosmic rust affected transformers? Or some other environmental thing that eats away at you slowly over time?

    National Eczema Association
    National Psoriasis Foundation - Dedicated to finding a cure for psoriasis

    I'd say those two sources would be a great starting point. Perhaps with your own personal experiences you'd have some sources that others may not? Hopefully, you can make some emails and phone calls to help you out!

    As far as customs ideas go, I really think the Cosmic Rust motif would be good if done well. I think there should be a series of bots affected with Cosmic Rust as well as bots that have been cured with corrostop. Personally, I think it is in bad taste to only have a custom that's reflective of the condition or disaster it's trying to raise funds and awareness for. I think coupled with a solution, though, it offers hope through a cure.

    I wish you well with your endeavors on this. I'd recommend chatting it up with some other artists here who have done similar types of "charity" types of auctions. :thumb
