The Anniversary that feels like Christmas

So, I was finally able to catch up on a few things today, including picking up the mail for ONE-SHOT. Really, it’s one of my favourite things to do, because the mail is full of the most carefully wrapped packages, filled with your old cameras bound for Kurdistan. It feels like Christmas every time! In […]

Hey everyone!   We’ve been blown away by the support we’ve received!  Here is an update to let you know how things are going:   -We’ve had cameras donated from many different countries, coming in the mail, and via friends and volunteers.  I can’t tell you how excited I get when I go to the […]

1 camera + 1 memory card = super happy kids

Wanted to give a shout-out to the kind folks at First United Church in Sherkston, Ontario (Canada). They asked me to speak at their Christmas luncheon today. It was a lovely time. Not only were they gracious, asking lots of questions after my talk, but they also gave a donation toward the project. Thank you!!

In the meantime, we’ve been working on some administrative details. I’m happy to tell our American supporters that we have a new U.S. address to receive donations of […]

Friends + Family + Food = Cameras for Kids!

friends+food+family = Cameras for Kids!

This past Tuesday, the most amazing group of folks got together in support of ONE-SHOT. Linda Crago, a friend and farmer, hosted an event at her farm in Wellandport, ON, Canada. Linda knows that people who support local farms and who love good food are some of the most generous people around. She’s right! Linda […]

Volunteer Update – Thank You!

Some of the future students for ONE-SHOT Workshop 2011.

One of the most exciting things about being involved in The ONE-SHOT Project from the early days has been watching people from around the world get excited to be involved. Just this week we’ve been contacted by photographers/teachers from Australia, the US and The Netherlands. We’re looking forward to seeing how some of these relationships […]

Encouraging News for ONE-SHOT! (Update)

Wow, it’s been 4 months since we launched this website and finally we have some news to share with you. Let me start from the beginning… at the moment ONE-SHOT is the effort/result of my family, IGVP, and my NGO team, but since my family and I are on a break in our home country, […]
