It does.. and they never tell youmuch but expect you to find them.. or buy some book to learn. Well this vanity name is ours for KEEPS!.. no one can have it now and also if we delete it..it will not be given to anyone else. If Clubsnap has the same situation.. best go get their vanity name too. Already somneone took Clubsnap. So moderators.. come up with a name and put clubsnap with a proper URL instead of the long string of codes... hard to remember.
May I suggest Mod states the venue in this thread for this coming weekend.
photography makes one sees things from all angles.
Hi folks, looks like Clubsnap is doing some good work.
I'm with Relief 2.0, independent units on the field filling the gaps of NGOs, http://www.relief20.com/ and I'm in Ishinomaki, Miyagi prefecture, and yes, Tohoku, Ishinomaki and northern shore area are hit bad, but the NGOs seemed to be concentrated in Sendai. Sendai city is not affected much at all, and the coast around Sendai is filled with lots of NGOs, NPOs and army people, and they do not seem to be up north.
I'm also trying to raise funds, and I've a lot of photos of Ishinomaki to share. I was wondering if I could do some fund raising for Relief 2.0 along side with you guys and sell some of the photos I've taken at Ishinomaki a few days ago to raise funds to help the people there. I do not mind coming to talk about the ground situation, and show some maps and photos, as well as videos taken.
Any suggestions on whether I should come and meet up with you guys or take it elsewhere? I've talked to some places and they are all going with the big boys, like Red Cross and Global Giving, and it makes raising funds really hard. Pls advice.
Thank you for your words of encouragement.
I am sure Clubsnap members would benefit greatly from your experiences and photos in Japan. Please do share them in the Reportage Forum.
Unfortunately after much deliberation with the team, we regret to inform that we are unable to cooperate for Ganbatte Japan. Please allow me to explain further.
1) We are working exclusively with Mercy Relief. Mercy has been most generous and supportive of our campaign from the very beginning and we have informed all sponsors and donors that all proceeds are for the Mercy Relief. It would be most complicated to involve other charities now and split the donations.
2) Our sponsors Nikon Singapore and Noritsu are informed of our exclusive arrangement with Mercy Relief. It is difficult to change the proposals and re-seek approval when we are already mid-way in the campaign.
3) Finally Ganbatte Japan is based on two principles. Primarily to use portraits of encouragement to raise funds. There is no sales element. Hence we have rejected many supportive photographers and printers eager to use CS as a platform to sell or auction their prints. Likewise we have to reject offers for flea markets, donations of toys etc etc.
I hope you could understand our position.
Nevertheless we wish you great success in your fund raising campaigns and we look forward to your sharing.
BTW, I received an event in FB that 2902 Gallery is giving away some frames. Not sure if it will be useful for us?
