Garson, ON (PRWEB) January 17, 2008
The members of NoBS Photo Success, which provides online digital photography resources, nearly doubled their donations this year for Sleeping Children Around the World (SCAW).
In December 2006, members of the photography forum site managed to raise more than $4,700, which was enough to purchase over 150 bed kits. By raising $7,090 this past December, they were able to purchase more than 200 bed kits. NoBS Photo Success founders Robert Provencher and James Hodgins once again donated $1,000 of their own money to this recent effort.
The inspiration for this fundraiser was NoBS Photo Success cofounder James Hodgins. Looking for a way to give back and show gratitude for his success, Mr. Hodgins rallied other members of the digital photography resources site to contribute towards helping those less fortunate. They chose SCAW, according to Mr. Hodgins, because he knew that NoBS Photo Success members wanted 100 percent of their donations going directly to needy children. Sleeping Children Around the World guarantees that all donations go directly to buying the bed kits, which are produced in the respective countries receiving the donations.
NoBS founders Rob Provencher and James Hodgins had hoped to raise $10,000 in the second annual drive, but were pleased nonetheless that members stepped up to nearly double the total from the first drive. To read more about SCAW and their work, go to http://www.scaw.org.
