It was a year ago to the day that we set out in Miami documenting the streets around us, in support of the #24hourproject. This year, it takes place on April 1st.
“We are all about Documenting Humanity to Make a Difference and for this we are creating partnerships with NGO’s to raise awareness and empower their initiatives.
Lesvos Solidarity believes that no human is illegal and that borders should be open. Lesvos Solidarity provides refugees with shelter and hospitality but not registration. The refugees who stay at their camp are some of the most vulnerable: disabled, sick, pregnant and the families of victims of shipwrecks. They offer food, clothes, hygiene kits & medical assistance. They also organize activities for children, language classes and social support.
This year, we joined forces with LESVOS SOLIDARITY to provide urgently needed relief to refugees. Together we will:
-Raise awareness of the current Refugee crisis
-Conduct a workshop among refugees, providing them cameras and letting them tell their own stories
-Help increase donations which go directly to much needed refugee aid programs
-Increase sales through recycled lifesavers bags hand crafted by refugees
-Sell photos during world exhibitions, [and the profits will] go directly to Lesvos Solidarity
-Increase volunteer program participants”
Last year’s event was fun…I can’t wait until this year’s kickoff…
