Thanks for volunteering your time and effort.
I'd appreciate if you've volunteered (and updated the database) and for some reasons you have to pull out, be it 2 or 3 April, please update the database again.
It'll really help us to work on the logistics and deployment, eg. how many teams of photographers we can send out, how often we can give breaks to the teams (it can be tiring job but meaningful) and such.
In addition, I also seek all volunteers' co-operation to focus on the task at hand once we're on the ground. We're there to encourage as many prospective donors to donate to help in the relief and rebuilding efforts as well as taking their photographs (with encouraging messages) and posting them in FB.
I understand as photographers, we tend to get distracted should we come across interesting subjects which we'll side-track and end up doing street-shooting and such.
I'm urging all prospective volunteers to focus on the task at hand as we really hate to come over and 'ask' you to concentrate on your job. However, should you find the task becoming uninteresting, just let us know. You just need to return the lanyard and carry on with what interests you with no hard feelings.
So far, it's been an enjoyable but tiring first weekend @ Far East and Pacific Plaza. We're looking forward to another one this weekend @ Orchard Central and I believe as long as we stay committed to the cause, play our part as professionally as possible, I'm sure it'll go down as one of the most memorable encounters which you'll ever have ...
