I am sure all of you heard what happened on Saturday the 25th of April in Nepal. I have been to Nepal couple of times and it is a country dear to my heart. I have lot of friends there. Luckily most of them are safe however I still haven’t heard from two of my sherpa friends who were believed to be in Everest Base camp or on the mountain. Anyway, Nepal suffers. People suffer and I was wondering how I could help. Recently I have set up a small fine art print online shop. I have decided that to donate the profit from every sale until 1st August to good cause. Depending of amount of sale money will be donated to charitable organisations, NGO’s or directly to people in need. My photographs can be found at richardsimko.photos.
I shared my idea here with Patrick and he was kind enough to post this on Fujirumos so it can spread further. I am not asking you to go and buy my print. Instead I am asking you to consider selling some of your photographs and donate the profit to help Nepali people and country to bounce back from this tragedy. This is purely my personal initiative, and idea that I hope would spread around not just in Fujirumors community but much further than that. This is an opportunity to do something we all love and help the needy ones at the same time.[admin: I hope many will help and purchase a print... I did. And if you also join this initiative by selling some of your photographs and donate the profits, drop the link in the comments]
