Last November I traveled to Niamey, Niger in north-central Africa to document the work a team from Grace Chapel was doing there. I photographed wells being repaired, health and hygiene classes and schools during my time there. I also was asked to photograph Orphelinat le Bon Samaritan, an orphanage that had lost much of its fund the year before. I was touched by the kids there and some of their obvious needs. One of those needs was beds. Most of the 60 children were sleeping on the tile floors or on a couple very old and worn mattresses. I literally only saw one usable bed in the entire orphanage. I decided that I wanted to help out by raising the money when I returned home. Elevate Photography matched any donations that were given with a goal to raise $6,240. This would purchase 30 bunk beds and 60 mattresses for the children. Thanks to the generosity of our friends, families and Elevate’s clients, we were able to raise all of the money! The money was sent to them in March and the children can now be tucked in and get a great nights sleep. Thank you to everyone that donated! We couldn’t have done it without you. – McCory
Thank you again for all of the support to reach this goal. 100% of the funds needed were raised!
