t-shirts

Be the envy of your fellow walkers when you show up to the walk sporting your stylish, official Worldwide Photo Walk T-shirt.

Not only will you look particularly snazzy, you’ll have done something bigger than just showing up your fellow walkers — because 100% of the profits from the sale of these t-shirts goes directly to the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Nakuru, Kenya to feed, clothe and care for 31 very awesome kids.

But it’s not just t-shirts. It might be chilly in some parts of the world. That’s why we have…

Sweat Shirts (in White and Ash Gray), long sleeve t-shirts, and even Hoodies (in White, and Heather Gray). They all look awesome, and you will, too (both inside and out). :)

NOTE: A special thanks to Rob Jones at Towner Jones Photography for hosting our t-shirt store each year. Rob is the man!

But what if I don’t want a t-shirt?
You can still help. You can donate directly to the orphanage by giving $1 (if each photo walker gave just $1 we would hit our goal no problem), $5, $10 — really as much as you want to give. They have huge needs at the orphanage, and they need our support (right now, they need a small bus to transport the kids to school, and we’re going to help).

Here’s the link to donate — do it right now (btw: you will feel awesome if you do this!)

So, what is Springs of Hope Kenya? 
Watch this short video from Molly Waits and the kids themselves. Just watching this will help.

Think of how much we all spend on gear…
…and then think how little it would take for each one of us photographers to give some hope, food and a future for these deserving kids. Please give anything you can. Even just one dollar makes a difference. It matters.

Thanks everybody for opening your hearts to this orphanage. Since 2009 we’ve raised more than $100,000 for the orphanage and this year, they’ve got some really big needs — please join with us in helping them. This is the stuff we are called to do.

Have a great weekend everybody and….order those shirts! :)

Best,

-Scott

 

 

 

 

 

I am excited beyond excited!!! When I got the call from Rob Jones last night that the profits from our t-shirt sales from my Worldwide Photo Walk broke our all-time record and that we had raised $12,000 for the Springs of Hope Orphanage, I about fell out of my chair!

But there’s a little more to the story than just that. While it’s true that we broke our record, (the t-shirt sales by themselves raised $9607.48), Rob wanted to make sure we hit $12,000 so his company “Towner Jones Photography” kicked in an $2392.52 on their own. I am truly touched (but not surprised — this isn’t the first time Rob’s done something like this).

Rob has run the entire t-shirt sale part of the Photo Walk from the very beginning simply out of wanting to help others less fortunate and we are blessed that he saw a need and pitched-in in a big way. Please join me in thanking Rob for the tens of thousands of dollars his efforts have raised for the Springs of Hope Orphanage by leaving him a note here on the blog.

Also, if you didn’t get a chance to get one of the shirts, but want to help the Orphanage, you can make a donation right here. 

My heartfelt thanks to Rob Jones for just being awesome; to my good friend and our Creative Director Felix Nelson for the cool logo he designed for the shirts, and to everyone who bought a shirt to help out the Orphanage. After the past few weeks, I think we all need to celebrate a win of any size, so please join me in thanking Rob, and here’s to small victories that mean a lot. :)
