ANNOUNCING PLUS ONE COLLECTION III CHARITABLE CAUSE
It's with great pleasure and honor that I'd like to introduce you to the cause we'll be supporting with this year's proceeds from the sale of the Plus One Collection photobook we're putting together. The cause we chose is The Samburu Project, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides access to safe, clean and drinking water to communities in Kenya.
What's one thing we all have in common as people in the world? We all need water to survive. While good water is easily accessible to most of us in the developed world, it's a luxury for many people elsewhere and it affects their health, their opportunities and the length of their lives. Let's help!
What are we going to do? We'll use the proceeds to build one water well that will bless the lives of many.
How much do we need to raise? We need to raise about $17,500 which will be used to drill and construct the well. It's a high goal, but I know we can do it and we'll do new things this year we haven't done before. More marketing, more publicity, sale of prints, and a photo exhibit of work donated to the project, besides the publishing the book itself, of course.
To get to know The Samburu Project, please take a look through their websire – http://www.thesamburuproject.org/ and also click on the video I linked.
If you're a part of our project, please continue to spread the word, and share the news with your circles.
