Giving Back is a big part of the life of a photographer. Several years ago, photographer and educator, Kevin J. Miyazaki came up with a brilliant idea that allowed photographers to create limited editions and donate the 100% monies to the charity of their choice. The organization is called collect.give and to celebrate the project’s first 50 photographers and raising well over $28,000 to a wide variety of charitable organizations, collect.give announces the release celebrating this incredible milestone. Kindly consider purchasing a copy of this book as the proceeds help, yet another charity, the RSPCA.
128 pages, softcover, perfect bound
To Benefit: The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA). In keeping with the collect.give mission to donate 100% of proceeds to charity, all profits from this book will be donated to the RSPCA, a charity chosen by book designer Heidi Romano.
