Pulling out all the (f) stops for the Photographic Resource Center

The Photographic Resource Center is an organization that's very important to me, and one that serves fans and practitioners of photography around town and around the world. If you haven't been, I urge you to visit. There's a lot going on.  I had planned to raise money this summer for the PRC, but times are tough for all nonprofits, and I'm concerned that if we don't raise some money now, the PRC won't see my 29th birthday again.  So I am advancing this year's birthday fundraiser, and I hope both of limeduck's loyal readers can be generous.

Please visit www.firstgiving.com/11th29th or use the fundraising widget in the blog's sidebar to learn more and make a donation.  Every dollar you donate to this page will serve as a raffle ticket for a photograph from my collection that I will give away when we raise the $2000 goal.  [UPDATE 3/30: I'm going to raffle one photo at $1,000 and another at $2,000 so the earlier donors will get two chances!]The more you give, the better your chances. The winner will have his or her choice of these three framed and matted photos.  [UPDATE 4/3: hit the $1k point, did the first drawing and Jason chose the Stupich print - two prints left, next drawing at $2k!]

Please spread the word to others who might be interested and able to help.  And remember, the raffle won't happen until we hit the $2000 goal!  www.firstgiving.com/11th29th
