We take photographs. We live for light. We breath vision. It's what keeps us going. We are photographers.
But David is blind. Totally blind. He sees colour only in his dreams. He says he feels like a ghost - nobody notices him - but he only knows he's for real when he walks into something and feels the pain.
Please watch this video by UK documentary photographer +J A Mortram
who's been documenting David's life for a while along with the lives of many other folk in his home town. It's a project called Small Town Inertia. It's important.
I've never asked before but if you're one of the Google+ big wigs with thousands of followers then please would you consider sharing this? We want to raise - no, we WILL raise - $3200 dollars so that David can have a scanner and then be able to read again.
If you feel moved then please contribute - a dollar will do (10 would be even better!!) - at hopemob.org

Forgive me for being so direct and for +1'ing folk. But you have big followings and so you resharing this will have a way better impact than anything I can do. Thank you so much for any help you can offer.
