Changing worlds with photography.
Welcome to my fundraising page! I am so excited to share this opportunity with my family and friends. I have partnered with Photographers Without Borders® (PWB) to create a photo documentary to raise awareness for a non profit organization in Jodhpur, India. In January 2017, I will spend two weeks abroad with the Sambhali Trust. Please read more about the organization here: http://www.sambhali-trust.org. This is an organization that promotes the empowerment of women and children in India. One of the many reasons that I was selected specifically for this project is my prior experience studying abroad in India. While there, I fell in love with the country, the culture, and all of the amazing people that I met. And now I have the opportunity to give back to a place that has meant so much to me! Please join me in telling the story about the women and children that are breaking the cycle of poverty in their communities and creating brighter futures for the coming generations!
Donors like you have helped photographers fundraise 100% of project-related costs since 2014!
SAMBHALI TRUST - Anne Gattilia
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.
PLEASE DONATE GENEROUSLY !
