I believe that people are inherently good.
To help people, to right a wrong, to reverse an injustice, to see a situation and want to recruit others to help change a condition. We have that inside of us. All of us.
There is always that intention, anyway. Whether the action comes to fruition, or attempted fruition, is another matter.
In everyone of our communities, there is something that can be fixed. Assuming you can reveal it in a way that illustrates what’s broken. In a powerful, visual way perhaps that inspires the viewer to action.
Years ago, Blue Earth Alliance, was created in part by Phil Borges, to help photographers, with a passion project, achieve a path to realizing that outreach to the world. To help right that wrong. To shine a spotlight on an injustice.
To make a difference.
Now they have not been setup to give you money. They help you create the toolbox to help you get to the right place. And each toolbox is unique.
Take a look at this video for a look inside:
Give a man a fish, feed him for a day; teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.
If you feel that you have a photographic project that this team can help you with, or you need an advocate to get your photographic message to the next level, go to Blue Earth Alliance.
They are always looking for good projects.
