Please Help Us Help Gale!
April 3, 2009
UPDATE! Gale has moved from #131 to #23–if she makes the top 20, she goes to the final judging, done by the Microsoft folks. Please keep those votes coming in! Spread the word!!!! The knittas can put her over the top!
QUICK! We have the chance to help the amazing photographer/knitter/blogger Gale Zucker get her dream assignment.
Microsoft is giving grants to photographers in a Name Your Dream Assignment contest. Gale would be PERFECT for this.
Gale writes: “I’m proposing going to Heifer Project sites around the world, to photograph and tell the stories of how the work they do changes lives directly by giving people the ability to support themselves. You know my commitment to social issues, animals, farms, youth and trying to do some good in this world. Being funded for this Dream Assignment project would enable me to multiply my efforts beyond any way I could imagine or have been able to do until now.”
Gale took the photos for our new book, which was great fun. Her book Shear Spirit shows how well she can capture whole worlds with her exquisite photographs. Now, she has the chance to use her talent for an extraordinary project, and we hope you’ll help her win this contest.
TODAY is the last day for voting, so please read more about Gale’s wonderful project idea, and vote here.
We can make a big difference in the voting if we all take a minute to do this. Thanks so much for reading this.
