The photos you see linked to above are all for sale. I'd like to raise some money to help the people that this event was supposed to raise awareness for. The organizers have not asked for your donations directly, but instead, have asked to be aware. They have not taken it upon themselves to raise the money so I'm doing my part, however small or big that may be. Every single cent above the actual costs of printing and mailing the images to buyers will go to charity. Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns or to place an order.

After asking around and reading up a little bit on various charities doing work in Africa to help make poverty history, I've settled on World Vision as per Howard's suggestion. They are currently taking donations to help fight famine in Niger, West Africa. This is where your money will go. From World Vision:

Right now in Niger, West Africa, an estimated 3.6 million people are in critical need of food. The United Nations reports that more than 800,000 children are suffering from hunger, including 150,000 children who show signs of severe malnutrition, after drought and locust swarms devastated crops throughout the country. The government of Niger has declared an emergency and is appealing for help.

Niger is one of the poorest countries in the world, ranking 176 out of 177 nations listed in the UNDP's 2004 Human Development Report. Every year an estimated 166,000 children in Niger die from preventable diseases and almost 70 percent of the country's 12 million people do not have access to health services.

World Vision is currently on the ground in Niger, responding to the crisis. But we need your help. Your gift today will enable us to provide lifesaving food to children and families in Niger, West Africa. A gift of $60, for example, will feed 13 hungry children in Niger. And thanks to grants from the U.S. government and the World Food Programme, your gift today will be doubled in impact.

Please give what you can and tell feel free to spread the word to anyone who may be interested. Email your friends, write a blog post, comment on a blog post. You can help and have a memento from Philadelphia's Live 8 concert as well. Thank you.
