Seeking donations for youth photography workshop
Dear GetDPI friends,
With the gracious permission of Guy and Jack, I am writing to solicit donations for a youth photography workshop I will be teaching this summer. We are looking for digital point & shoot cameras and memory cards for 15 students. If you have an older p&s camera lying around, we would gladly put it to good use. All donations will be tax deductible.
This will be the fourth consecutive summer that I am teaching photography to inner-city teens at the Hyde Square Task Force in Boston ( http://www.hydesquare.org/ ). If you click on the "About Us" link, you will see that I am on the Board of Directors. In the past, the class was limited to 6 students and we were using Rebel XT cameras with a few different lenses. The program is expanding this summer (in part as a response to the cutbacks in summer job programs), and there will be 15 students in the class. Since we do not have any funding for the class yet, we decided that it will be easier to gather p&s cameras than additional Rebels and lenses.
So, if you can help us out, please send me a PM. If by chance you want to make a money donation, please go directly to this page http://www.hydesquare.org/get_involved/donate.html , and be sure to indicate that the donation is for the Youth Pix program.

I forgot to mention that we also need USB memory card readers.
Many thanks to those who have contacted me.
