Just wanted to give an update to my brother’s birthday mission to help out the Haiti earthquake relief as there is only a few days left! First of all, I am blown away by the generosity and kindness of all of you. I’ve gotten so many wonderful emails and DM’s through twitter about helping out with Billy’s Birthday Mission as well as lots of people helping spread the word. The donations have been wonderful and I’m so excited to meet the readers that have booked the photo sessions through their donation.
Billy has now raised almost $13,000! Amazing right? I am so proud of him! There are still a few more days to donate as he’s trying to raise as much money before January 31st. If you are in the Seattle area, Billy is holding a beginner dSLR workshop and you can join if you donate or have donated to his mission already. If you have a dSLR but still haven’t quite mastered how to use it yet, let Billy help you! Here is his description of the workshop:
I’ll be going to Gas Works Park on Sunday, February 7 @ 3:30PM to do a photography workshop…
Billy also has a few Mariner’s tickets + extra goodies that has been donated that you can get for your donation. Click for information on the tickets.
I am still taking donations for Billy and will send you a print of one of my pictures in return. For a $20+ donation, I will send you an 8×10 of any of my pictures, your choice. I’ve had a lot of people pick my shoe pictures and lots of love for my Honolulu picture as well. You can pick anything from my flickr but here are some of my favorites that you can pick from.
Thanks again for well, everything really. I am so grateful and thankful to so many of you for helping me out with this as it is something that is so important to me and I am just blown away by the kindness that everyone has shown to me and Billy and especially the people that were affected by the earthquake.
One last thing, the wonderful Gina of Clothes, Inter Alia, has offered to donate $1 to Doctors without Borders for every comment she gets on this post. She wrote a wonderful post about Billy and his photography that you should definitely check out and oh yes, please leave a comment! 🙂
