i’ll be going with Nou Hope, a non-profit focused on serving the central plateau of Haiti. Nou Hope does “missions differently”. instead of focusing on short term trips, Nou Hope works with the Haitians, providing education, resources, and opportunities for the people.
i’m going primarily to take photos and capture the stories of the brilliant Haitian people. i’ll be using the images and content on our website and Instagram account to help build a personal connection between the villages and our social media audiences.
the trip, overall, is going to cost me roughly $2,000. plane tickets, meals, vaccinations, a lens rental and new tripod aren’t cheap.
any and all donations are very welcome. but to sweeten things a bit, i’ll be offering a few items in exchange for donations of certain amounts.
if you donate:
$50-100, i’ll mail you an 8x10 print of your choosing. You can pick between 5 of my favorite travel photos or one of the images i shoot in haiti.
$100-250, i’ll mail you 3 4x5’s and an 8x10 print of your choosing.
$250-500, i’ll mail you a softcover photobook of my trip and an 18x24 print of your choosing.
$500+, i’ll mail you a softcover photobook of my trip and schedule a photo session of your choosing. what does that mean? that’s up to you. i can come to you and shoot photos of your family. i could shoot headshots for your resume. you could come crash on my couch in Portland and i’ll play PNW tour guide. we’ll work something out.
how do I donate?
you can write a check to Nou Hope and note that it's for my trip. the address is:

you can go online at http://www.nouhopehaiti.org/donate/ and note that it’s for my trip. (all donations ARE tax deductible.)
i hope you'll consider giving and praying for our team while we're in the central plateau of Haiti.
