6) Giving Back

For many of us, it's the "holiday season," and for a lot of people that means giving and receiving presents, big dinners, decorations, family, friends, and all the other fun stuff. But for other people around the world, this time of year doesn't really mean anything special. For some, it's even a question of survival. In places like Liberia, in Africa, diseases like malaria are front and center, claiming over 1 million lives per year. It's a sobering thought. While we're celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Festivus, Kwanzaa or whatever we celebrate this time of year, 3,000 people a day are dying from malaria.

As I'm sure you're aware (I've sent out a bunch of messages about it already... and I'm not going to stop until the fund raiser is over), we're raising money by partnering with the Canadian Red Cross to purchase pre-treated mosquito nets to help prevent the spread of malaria. It doesn't cost $100 for a net; not even $29.95 per month. We're talking $7 a net (and that's even $7 CDN, which is around $5.50US). For those of us that love photography (and that's pretty much all of us, isn't it?), $7 to save a life is practically nothing when compared to what we spend on photography. We can afford $7. That's the bottom line. We have $7, and $7 can save a life. It seems like a no-brainer to me.

You can read more about the fund raiser here: http://www.photographycorner.com/blo.../malaria-bites and you can read an update on the fund raiser here: http://www.photographycorner.com/blo...-raiser-update On December 23rd we'll announce the totals, so we'd love for you to get your donations in by then. And, as an added bonus, for every net that you buy, I'll send you a free PhotographyCorner.com pen. Save a life, get a cool pen. It's a win-win situation. Make a donation today: http://my.e2rm.com/personalPage.aspx?SID=2027040



See you around the Corner,
