I volunteer with The ONE-SHOT Project. We teach photography, storytelling, and peacemaking skills to kids on the margins in Northern Iraq. We need help to spread the word that we’re looking for camera donations for four workshops we’re running this summer.
We know what photography geeks are like… we upgrade our gear, and tuck away our old gear as a back-up. It doesn’t take long for us to accumulate a lot of back-up gear. There are millions of cameras tucked away and never used. 35 lucky ones could be donated and sent on an amazing adventure with some amazing kids!

Our current needs are for 20 point & shoot cameras, and 15 DSLR camera bodies with lenses.
If you’d like to see a slide show of images our students made last fall, you can see it at our blog. None of our students (between 10-15 years old) had held a camera before the workshop. All of the images are straight out of the camera.
I appreciate any help you give to spread the word! Drop me an email if you have a camera or memorycard left or if you’d like to donate money.
