    Cool Is it realistic to produce a photobook on Nurse's to raise funds for charity?

    What do you veterans think of this idea? Will there be interest or something else will be better? I'm still trying to get a feel at the ground level before reporting back to my in charge. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    raising for who?

    why would anyone be interested in nurses?
    what will the photo book be about? a 101 on nursing?
    how are u going to shoot?
    is there any deeper meaning that you are trying to convey?
    is anyone sponsoring the book prints?
    what percent of the sales will be going to printing?
    how are u going to manage the funds raised?
    where are you going to sell the books?

    i see potential in the idea, but u have to ask urself why or what are u going to show through the books

    this is just round 1 of idea whacking. still need more idea whacking.
    but IF it is really for charity, i dun mind chipping in with the photography. i think its a worthy cause, and i'm fine doing it.

    why not do a photo book on doctors ? they are richer and sure to buy more for friends and relatives ...... even parents whose children are doctors....... sure buy by the carton to give their relatives and friends if their doctor son/daughter is featured

    We have yet to get a list of charities from our corporate comms. As for the photographers,I'm just a tiny contributer. We already have the ST chief photog and our organisations own official photog. We're trying to produce a photobook for a variety of reasons. For career counselling in schools,to showcase the different career paths nurses have,technologies involved etc.

    We are not really sure if this is a good idea therefore I'm trying to get different opinions. We don't have a theme yet either.

    *facepalms* u all got ST chief photog (huifen ar?) then ask her la. she has the necessary experience already hahahaha. she can assist u on this issue better.

    may i ask which organisation you are from?

    if u ask me, a good direction to take is really to go behind the scenes of nurses. dun go towards the direction of..... a 101 on nursing. get the behind story of how much effort they put in, what time they must wake up/dismiss. it might be more inspiring and more useful for ur cause.

    seriously. just ask huifen. she is quite an old hand at this hahaha.

    Maids are now called Professional Domestic Service Associates.

    i think it's a good idea. it'll show everyone that Nurses are more than just people who assist the doctors. Nurses are not maids. my cousin and my good friend from secondary school are nurses. i had no idea why they chose that profession since they're very good students and can easily become engineers and into other professions.

    for some, it's a way to earn money. but for others, it's the passion to help people and to help save lives.

    I can garrantee you they won't last long if they're there for the money ! Nurses are like the regulars in our Police forces and Armed forces except they're fighting against diseases and deaths. They're fighting for what they believe in even if they have to make great sacrifices including their own lives and the lives of their loved ones.
    Ask yourselves, which is harder and braver, fighting Crooks, enemy soldiers or death ? ...people who treats nurses as if they're maids should be left wounded and dying in some battlefield somewhere so that they can learn some respect for what these nurses do !!!

    Maybe TS would like to ask the Singapore Nurses Association (SNA) and Singapore Nursing Board (SNB) for their opinions.

    I agree that it's a passion for some. I have a friend who was a relationship manager in a top bank, easily earned at least 6-8K/mo, but left & became a nurse =) I still remember meeting her at a kopitiam, I was having my dinner, while she tabao-ed coz she had to rush to Changi hospital for her night shift.
