Hi gang: Here’s a quick update on how we’re doing with the Worldwide Photo Walk:

The Numbers
Wow!!! We’re at nearly 600 walks around the world, and by the time you read this, we’ll have almost 10,000 walkers registered in walks (to put that in perspective, that’s way more than we had for the first walk by a long shot, both in number of walks and walkers!). If you haven’t signed up for a walk, it’s not too late, and if there’s not a walk in your area yet, and you want to lead one, it’s not too late either. Here’s the link to get all the details, or sign up for a walk.

The Shirt
We’ve got some really cool t-shirts for walkers and leaders this year (see above), and once again 100% of the profits go directly to the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya (last year we raised over $7,000 to feed and cloth the children), and this year we’re hoping, with your help, to raise even more. Here’s a link to order yours today (The link for Walk Leaders is on your Leader Dashboard).

The Love
If we didn’t get another city, my Publisher Peachpit Press would still be shipping over 1,200 copies of either my Lightroom 3 book, or my CS5 book, all over the world, and that they would be willing to do this to support the walk, is just amazing (I can’t imagine what that all costs. Well, I can, I just try not to), so do me a favor and check out their site here, or follow them on Twitter, or Facebook. They publish the very best books on Photoshop, Photography, and all the stuff we love, so please join me in giving them some big love, because without them, we couldn’t make all this happen. Thanks Peachpit (Nancy, Scott, Ted, and crew!!!).
