When we started planning this year’s walk, I had a meeting with my staff about finding a way to use this worldwide event to help feed the children at the Springs of Hope Kenya Orphanage (an orphanage that the readers of this blog have adopted, and helped to build over the past year, and it’s scheduled to open in just over a month).
We were looking at different ideas, when out of the blue an email came in from Rob over at Towner Jones Photography with an incredible idea; create an official Photo Walk T-shirt and have the profits from the sale of the shirts go to “Springs of Hope, Kenya.” As soon as I read his email, I knew this was it!
Well, with lots of Rob’s logistical help (and some clever design work from our own Nicole Procunier), we now have two official shirt designs to choose from, seen above [click for a larger view] along with some other cool Photo Walk gear.
For each Official World Wide Photo Walk t-shirt you order, $5.00 will go to the Springs of Hope, Kenya orphanage. Here’s the link to Rob’s CafePress.com page to order yours, and not only do you get a cool shirt, you get to help feed some kids who so need our on-going help.
NOTE: There are also special t-shirts just for walk leaders with your choice of fronts, but they include our new official Worldwide Photo Walk logo design and the word “LEADER” in big letters on the back (as seen above). You can find those here.
A big, big thanks to Rob at Towner Jones Photography for coming up with the idea to help the kids at the orphanage, and seeing this project all the way through (here’s a link to Rob’s blog). Also, my thanks in advance to everyone who buys one of the shirts to feed some very deserving children.
