CALL TO ACTION FOR PHOTO PROFESSIONALS EVERYWHERE!

I have compiled a small list of fantastic non-profits that need your help. I challenge my fellow photographers to pick an organization (or more than one) and donate your time and talent for a wonderful cause! It can be as simple as once or on a regular basis. Please check out these fabulous organizations.

Photographers without Borders: Professional photographers donate their images from across the world of people and landscapes to be sold and proceeds benefit the locations the images were taken in. www.photographerswithoutborders.net
