How generous of you to offer your website to help people out!I belong to a non-profit organization called The Hope Resource Network Inc. We are planning a benefit concert for a local 3 year old, Sophia Lodovico who has a rare genetic disease called Dyskeratosis Congenita. It leads to progressive bone marrow failure. Our concert will be held in Pennsylvania either the first of 2nd week of May (we're still working out logistics). We will be making a website which will be finished by the end of the weekend. Since you have a national following; I thought maybe you would be willing to allow us to advertise our cause & the concert on your website! If you need more information; don't hesitate to email me at! Keep up the amazing work; you are without a doubt, my favorite photographer!
