I tried writing to moderator Catchlights to seek permission to post an appeal for volunteer photographers but his mailbox is full.
Can't find other mods here to write to urgently, but I have been certified as a bona fide social-work staff in a recognised charity so this is not a scam or anything.
Anyway, here goes:
I have an urgent appeal for a volunteer photographer at the last minute. We have tried for 2 weeks to find existing volunteer photographers in our database to do it but failed at the last minute due to unforeseen circumstances. If anyone is able to use some decent DSLR equipment to capture some memorable moments for my charity organization for the elderly, we'll be most grateful!
Date: Friday 23 Oct
Time of event coverage: 8am to noon only.

Contact details: If anyone is keen, please sms to 97214186 and we'll get back to you asap to see if there is a job match.
Dear mods: If you need further verification of my employment status in a certified charity, please contact me via pm. Please don't penalize me ok? Your kindness and tolerance is appreciated!
