Send 100Cameras to Haiti

$50 of $8,000 goal

It’s difficult to condense this project down to a few paragraphs because it has been years in the making but to keep it short Jules & I became sisters in 2012 and our story can be found here & here

Jules & I have been working on small photography projects together that flip the script on Haiti and talk about love, beauty, weddings and how sisterhood can change the world.

For the past two years we’ve been talking about teaching a photo class in Haiti where Jules grew up and we recently partnered with 100Cameras to make our dream a reality. We love 100cameras because once the class is over and we leave Haiti, 100Cameras sells prints of the kids work and 100% of the proceeds from print sales directly funds medical, educational, and lifeline supplies for their own community. Which we think is pretty important because photography is a dignified living.

What we need is:

25 cameras for kids -$3000 
* we are hoping to leave all the cameras in Haiti so that Destiny Orphange can have a photography class even after we leave.
(or send us a message about donating your old point and shoot to us) 

Printer and Paper for the final gallery show of the kids work -$500

Camera for Jules $3,000 –
Jules is currently using an older camera that is not professional quality and we have been renting all of her equipment for each shoot and wedding. This is an added cost and makes it difficult for Jules to practice her F/stop, ISO and shutter speed skills once the equipment is sent back. We want to purchase her a Canon 5D Mark 3 body she can use at weddings and on projects she wants to create and we plan to share lenses until she buys her own.

Jules' Passport & Extract - $400
we are in the process of securing Jules travel documents and are discovering how difficult it is to travel when on paper you aren’t a citizen in either country. 

We know there are many organizations doing incredible and important work and we don’t take your trust in us lightly, we consider any help we get an investment in our vision and motivation to keep creating change with our perspective.

Growing up in Haiti as an orphan I never thought I would be able to do something I loved for a living, here I’m today falling in love with photography and creating a career from it. It all started because my dad gave me my sisters old camera and told me to try something different, not in a million years did I think that I would fall in love with it. When I first started photographing I wasn’t into it. I just basically took picture of anything but as time went on I started to see things differently because I could see something through the camera lens and capture moments other people didn’t see in themselves. I wouldn’t know whether I would like it or not if someone didn’t give me the opportunity, which is why I’m asking you guys for some help because I want to give kids in Haiti the opportunity I got because some cared enough to give me a camera. I want to capture the beauty of Haiti through the eyes of the little kids who live there. So please help me make a difference.
