Giving Tuesday and End of Year Approach!

By Elizabeth

It has been a banner year for the students engaged in Photo Start workshops. We have helped our partners host exhibitions, gain media attention, taken field trips that are experiences of a lifetime. We have had students featured in the New York Times and one of our ex-Gangster youth students from Paarl, SA has a new job with an audio technician after practicing making videos in our classes! Our partners have put over 120 students into Photo Start workshops this year.

We have received tremendous support from you all throughout the past year, and we can’t thank you enough. To our wonderful sponsors and supporters, thank you for believing in Photo Start and helping us to achieve our goal of closing the global digital divide through photography.

Please consider donating to Photo Start this holiday season. $10 can provide a week of classes for a student. We accept donations of all types, including in kind donations of equipment in good working condition. You can do that here: Donate Today

Also, if you shop on Amazon, please begin your shopping journey with our Amazon Smile link: Support Photo Start by shopping with Amazon Smile. The same Amazon experience, but they will donate .5% of your order to us for all eligible items. It’s a great way of passively helping us out!

Thank you very much.
