Facebook at its best.
Friday morning I checking into Facebook and read Aline Smithson's entry "We are preparing ourselves for something on the west coast...all very unnerving. Thoughts and sympathies to all friends in Japan." I had no idea what she was talking about...only that she lives in LA and I have many relatives on the west coast. I quickly checked into the news and learned about the devastating earthquake.
Within hours, Aline and Wall Space Gallery director, Crista Dix's put together Life-Support Japan with the contributions of many, many photographers. The print sale has raised nearly $6,000 in 24 hours. 100% of the proceeds benefit Direct Relief International and Habitat for Humanity. It is so impressive.
If you were thinking of contributing please check out the site. More prints will be added daily.
