Click to Help

Are you a shutterbug with old equipment lying around that you don't know what to do with? I just learned about a great organization that could use your help.

Oyitas in Argentina is a group that works to raise awareness on issues like poverty, illiteracy, and crime.  They are putting together a project where children in poverty stricken areas of Buenos Aires take pictures of their lives and where they live.  If you have old camera equipment or film that you don't need and want to donate, they could use your help! 
They are looking for regular old point and shoot cameras, and film (even expired) to distribute to the kids.  If you've made the switch to digital, you probably have one lying around that you don't use. 
Contact Lucia  if you'd like to donate equipment or funds.  If you're in the Hartford, CT area pick ups can be arranged as well!

  1. What a fantastic idea and the perfect way to recycle.

    I will be on the lookout for old photo equipment!
