Post 100 - For a Good Cause

Yay! So this is my 100th blog post! I couldn't be happier than to use it for a wonderful cause: the Through Their Eyes project.

A fellow photographer is holding a special blogathon today for his "Through Their Eyes" Africa project. This project benefits areas of Africa where it seems most or all adults have died (generally of aids and malaria) and the children are left with little aid. His team of influencial photographers will be partnering with Global Hope Network International (GHNI) in their aid trips, and will be working to give people in these areas a voice.

The photographers will provide members of the villages with equipment and training so that they may photograph their lives, and give them a global voice to tell the world about their community, and the conditions they face. The photographs will be collected and exhibited around the world, in order to bring awareness and relief on a scale that could not be accomplished with one organization.

Through photography, the people will have a way to communicate their lives, their needs, their culture, and their joys...without the need for a translator.

This project can't move forward without funding. To learn more & to donate, please visit:
