Changing worlds with photography.
CareNet Akatsi - Annie Vickrey
I am a graduate from the Community College of Philadelphia. I grew up in a modest but mostly comfortable American household. My parents worked very hard to provide for me and my brothers. My dad was a doctor and dedicated his life to helping others up until the day he passed. My mother is a generous woman who greets all with kindness. They taught me through example to be kind to others, and to help those I can. Now that I am a older with a studied skill set, I have the ability to help others in a bigger way than I ever had before. I am a professional photographer, and I am volunteering with Photographers Without Borders. You can see more information about this organization below. I will be going to Ghana to document health and educational initiatives for women and children in Akatsi. I am excited to be a part of this amazing program, and to contribute to something that is greater than myself. However, the funding is going to be a significant challenge. Please consider donating to this cause, and help me do some good :)
Thanks for your time,
Donors like you have helped photographers fundraise 100% of project-related costs since 2014!
Every year, our photographers and videographers donate hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of their time to document the work of grassroots initiatives that are making a real change in this world where it is most needed. By capturing, honouring and witnessing humanity at its best, we are not only inspiring many, but we are forging new narratives of what is and what is possible.
You can help by supporting our photographers and videographers (See the side bar to the right to see fundraisers for our most recent recruits).
Each of our official photographers/videographers is assigned a GroupRev fundraising page by PWB upon acceptance. These pages are a privilege we offer that are intended to make our programs accessible to all and enable our volunteer photographers/videographers to subsidize or cover these necessary project-related expenses:
- Health Insurance
- Travel Insurance
The following expenses are the sole responsibility of the photographer/videographer:
- Privately arranged travel
- Equipment & Equipment Insurance
- Extra Baggage Fees
- Donation perks
Photographers Without Borders® (PWB) envisions a world where we all put ourselves in each others' shoes and work together. Our mission is to inform and inspire positive change by visually communicating the ways that grassroots initiatives are addressing problems in their communities. PWB is registered as a charity in the United States with 501(c)(3) status and is registered as a not-for-profit organization in Canada. All donations are calculated in US Dollars and are tax-deductible for Americans and Canadians with US income.
PWB is not responsible for any donations made outside of these pages.
Any overage amounts raised on GroupRev will be donated with the photographers direction, 100% to the Organization, 100% to PWB or split 50/50, between the photographer's/videographer's assigned cause and PWB, which is also a volunteer-run organization.
