Lots of people talk about wanting to help. Taking the time and the energy to create something of beauty that makes a difference…rare indeed.
I’m beside myself in thanks to the amazing volunteers who have put together a benefit photo auction for Acumen Fund, this Thursday (tomorrow!). The Nuru Project is putting on the show (and what a show it will be) with photos by Steve McCurry, Susan Meiselas, James Whitlow Delano, and many more. Come early to the VIP preview to hear more about the photos from JB Reed.
The details: Thursday, 7:30pm, Tribeca Cinemas Gallery, 54 Varick Street. You can still buy tickets.
(open bar, great DJ, food from the likes of Jimmy’s No 43 and Smoke Joint, awesome raffle prizes, and I’ll also be saying a few words together with my colleague Yasmina Zaidman).
And if you can’t join us, you can spread the word. Why not lift these 88 characters and throw them up on Facebook or Twitter?
