Two Prints And Their Proceeds Devoted To Africa Arise

I’m in the middle of putting together a full proposal for a foundation that I hope will do some tremendous work in the future.  As things get developed I am initiating the beginning phase of the foundation by devoting all of the proceeds from the sales of two of my prints to benefit the ministry of Africa Arise.

Last weekend I was a part of a fundraising Arts night for Africa Arise.  I donated two framed prints to be sold at the fundraiser.  The events of that night and the story of the Acholi people of Uganda had a profound effect on me.  The takeaway for me from the event was that the easiest way to get in the way of injustice is to tell the story.  If people knew the stories of injustice, they would be compelled to stand up for justice.  I don’t want to say too much about my foundation as there is still plenty to sort out, but Shutters For Change will further dedicate these two images to raising funds and awareness for social justice.  Stay tuned.

If you are interested in purchasing prints of either of these photographs, please contact me by email at info(at)jmphotographyonline.ca or visit my website

I thoroughly enjoyed running a contest last month where I was able use Facebook and Twitter to give away a print.  I am also going to be giving away a print to one of my Facebook fans or “likers” once I reach 200 and likewise with my Twitter followers.

During all of this I also entered a contest.  Bludomain.com is a company that sells and host websites, they recently threw a contes to win their latest template and all of it’s add ons (html version, iPhone version, etc).  The contest was to send them a black and white image of yourself puckered up.  I did.  I won!  So now I have a brand new website for you to go have a look at, you can do that by clicking here
