it’s about saving lives. nailed it! the thirst relief mentor auction is going on right now! February 16th & 17th only! there are a grip of awesome photographers to bid on, so what are you waiting for ;)

what’s it all about you ask?

it’s about you growing as a photographer while saving lives!

i am so stoked to have been nominated to be a mentor for the 2010 Thirst Relief Mentor Auction! what an honor.

Thirst Relief International is responding to the worldwide water crisis by helping thousands of families each year gain access to safe water through simple, low-cost means. A locally manufactured biosand filter or a well repaired by nationals has the power to radically improve the health and well-being of an individual, a family, a community.
more than 1.1 billion people in our world lack access to safe drinking water. (UNICEF) living without this precious resource results in a host of preventable illnesses and even death. each year 2.5 million people die from diarrheal diseases, many of them caused by contaminated water. ninety percent of those deaths are children under age five. (World Health Organization)

Thirst Relief’s vision is simple yet profound—to save lives and change the world.

help me help you help them :)
