After so long, I'm happy to announce that Victoria's father was able to be reunited with his family once more. Thank you all for the support! It truly meant a lot to all of us.

This is a 100% true story about the plight my friend is currently going through. It is complete injustice and no one should have to grow up without a father, especially not someone as kind and caring as my friend. She has been working so hard to reunite her father with their family, but there is only so much one can do. If everyone helped just a little by signing the petition and spreading the word, we can make a real difference.

Father by `yuumei "Not only is it artistically and technically beautiful, but it harbors an important message. It reminds us to be grateful, and that there still is injustice in the world that needs to be brought to attention. Yuumei does this with use of subdued colors and emotional drawings, and, for a brief moment, her friend's plight for justice for her father." ( Suggested by jlucydaisuke and Featured by nasakii )

I just want to say that I think it's pretty damn awesome that you use your art as a way to help your friend and other causes, like saving the wolves. Usually people just upload art to show it off, but you genuinely try to make a difference using the considerable talents you were given, and that's kind of wonderful.

That's really nice of you to do a flash comic for a friend.. And that's quite some bullsh*t they do towards her father... Reminds me of politics and such. Welp, I now feel relieved they've been reunited. ( icrievertim )

I remember signing this years ago, and after my hiatus for a few years I come back to look at some memorable arts and artists. This was one of them, I'm glad that she was able to reunite with her father. This makes me happy and know that even if I'm surrounded by lots of evil and bad things that happen in this world. If there's at least one of these things where it works out in the sea of negative things happening, it gives me hope that there are still good things in the world.

did the petitions really help free her father? Was the chinese government even fazed a tiny bit by the petitions or was it just an independent decision that they made when they chose to finally release Dr. Hu?

This story is not impressive to me., I live without my home and I miss my father if smiling once and my mother do not cry on our money that was stolen by someone vile villain.And I wish I smile and my father, despite the loss of his dreams and success and hardship that did it for us in order to be happy lost and lost our joy and lost work of the father of any that he became unemployed and the state did not accept his appointment in any field even though he was the first on the university in the branch of aviationand although that has five terms of reference in this section
And I wish I once would go back to my house and I guarantee that I will live in peace and the end of the war and killings
I'm from Syria:( (Sad)
