Thanks to everyone who donated cameras for the girls at Graceland School in Kenya. I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude to Emerson College in Boston for their generous donation of 17 Canon digital cameras for use by Graceland students for art education, storytelling and self-expression this summer.
I am excited to report that this donation has allowed us to reach and even exceed our goal for used cameras as part of the Graceland Girls documentary project. To date, we have collected a total of 25 cameras, one for each student in the class.
We are thrilled to have reached this first goal in our fund raising efforts, and appreciate all who got involved in spreading the word, collecting donations and offering their old cameras and/or support.
Our excitement grows as we near our departure date at the end of June. It is beautiful to see it all coming together for such an inspiring cause.
