as some of you may know, a pool was set up yesterday to raise money for a fellow flickrer and photographer, photosuperstar (a.k.a. dean m. beattie), who recently had all his photography equipment -- $10,000 worth -- stolen. and get this. his insurance company isn't covering it.
can you imagine???
well, if you can, then please consider joining the group and buying a print posted there. the prints (like the one you see above) are donated by other flickrers. for US$50 you get a print, and dean gets that much closer to getting his voice back, since all the proceeds go to him. you're also welcome to donate and sell one of your own prints.
in a single day, the flickr community has raised more than $3,000. think about the impact of that.
and here's where i have to give a shoutout to craigbier, who singlehandedly brought this fundraising effort to life. and in so doing, he's reminded me that yes, one individual can make a difference.
