Simple act of kindness

I just read this story on the LaCour photo blog and I was reminded of how simple it can be to change someone's life just by giving a little bit of yourself. Annette Biggers of Triplecord and Veronica King just started up a business to send used film cameras to Africa after Annette's amazingly coincidental meeting of a man she donated a camera too. She met him in Uganda while she was shooting a wedding for free and saw first hand how her simple gesture changed this man's life and brought much needed income to his family through the business he started up with that camera. This story is really inspiring and I am not going to retell it all, just check the link. :)

I just thought I would share it here because I have seen how the a community can pull together and help out people in need and I am sure many of us have old film cameras that we don't use and would be excited to participate in this new venture called Photographers for Africa. Here is the contact info if anyone is able to give :)

Photographers for Africa
(949) 481-1345

It is so inspiring everytime I see how a random or simple act of kindness can start a wave of positive energy that could change someone's life
