I have really good news, and even better news. First, the good news:
(1) Through sales of the official Worldwide Photo Walk t-shirts, this year once again we raised just over $7,000 for the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya. How cool is that!!!! Now, the even better news:
(2) We’re not done. Rob Jones, of Towner Jones Photography (the wonderful, big-hearted guy who coordinates our whole t-shirt store) really wants us to hit our goal of raising $10,000 for the children this year, and here’s his plan:
For every Official Worldwide Photo Walk t-shirt you buy before the end of November, Rob (and Towner Jones Photography) will kick in an ADDITIONAL $5 per shirt to the Orphanage. You have to love a guy with that kind of heart and compassion (Rob, you SO rock!!!!!).
Here’s the link to the Official t-shirt store.
If you participated in a walk this year, I hope you’ll consider buying a shirt (or two) to help feed and cloth these wonderful kids (which is an on-going struggle for this small orphanage). Your donation helps more than you know (plus, you get a cool shirt besides). :)
If you already have the t-shirt, or just want to make a Direct Donation to the Springs of Hope Kenya Orphanage, click right here (and know at that moment that you’re about to do something that really, really makes a difference in the life of a child).
Thanks to everyone who already bought a shirt, and to everyone who will graciously help and buy one today, and a big thanks and hug to Rob Jones who year after year has dedicated himself to this project, with both his time, talents, and generous donations.
P.S. I’ll be posting the winners of the Photo Walk LEADER CONTEST by 12:00 PM Noon EST today!
