I have an idea, and it might seem far-fetched, but I want to give it a try. I hope you will participate. I will need your help to make this work.
This coming year (2011) I will dedicate 50% of any print sale made through my website to one of the charities listed below. You purchase the print, you pick the charity, I donate the money. I’m not talking 5%, or even 20%. I’m committing to a whopping 50%.
I’m still working on setting my prices and figuring out the details, but it will work something like this – purchase a 16″ x 24″ print for $100, and I’ll donate $50 to the charity you select. I plan to set reasonable rates that will encourage sales, and I’m hoping we can make a difference, together.
Why do it? Well, aside from the obvious, it’s motivating. I spend a lot of time outdoors, and this seems like a wonderful way to bring more meaning to the time and energy I invest in making these photographs.
I will post more on this subject soon, but if you have any questions or you’re interested, please send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss.
