LONG SHOT 2011- Sponsor me!



Dear Friends and Family,

As many of you know I'm participating in Long Shot 2011, a 24-hour photo marathon to raise funds for the Photo Center NW's education and outreach programs. I am extremely passionate about this cause and am writing to ask for your support in the form of sponsorship and small donations. Donations under my name are very easy to make through this online form. Any small amount helps but I'm asking that you pledge $1 for every hour I shoot, $24 total. Allow me to tell you a little more about what you are supporting and some of the rewards I will be offering in return for your sponsorship. MY GOAL IS TO RAISE AT LEAST $1,000 (raised so far: $700).

WHAT DOES IT SUPPORT?
On June 17th I will be photographing for 24 hours. This marathon supports the education and outreach programs the Photo Center NW does with the local community and at-risk youth. For the past 25 years the Center has been using photography to address issues that affect the community around us, working with refugee youth in Seattle, homeless teens, offering scholarships to low-income students and artist resources to emerging photographers. 100% of your donation will support these programs. No donation is too small, please consider giving whatever you feel comfortable with.
WHAT WILL YOU GET?
$10 - A personalized thank you card and a 5x7 postcard. + lotsa love.
$24 - Above + limited edition 5x7 photograph + lotsa love.
$50 -  8x10" limited edition print (edition of 10) taken during the marathon + personalized thank you + lotsa love.
