Brainstorm for charity with me!
Hey, so most of you know that I have an iPad / iPhone app called "100 Cameras in 1" and you love it and everything yes yes... but, did you know there is also a charity with a very similar name called 100cameras.org
? It is based on a great idea where they take provide cameras to children in "unjust conditions," and then they sell the prints to raise money. 100% of the money goes back to their community. A smart and fun endeavor!
Anyway, I've been in communication with Angela, who helps run the situation over there, and we want to work together. I have some ideas... and so does she, but we'd like to hear yours
. We've talked about everything from 100 Cameras in 1 contests, to making a blurb book, and so on and so on...
Since the app happens to have the same name as their organization, what good ways are there to work together? The goal, of course, would be to do one or more of the following:
- Get more people over to 100cameras.org
to buy prints of the kids' photos
- Get the kids a bunch of older iPod Touches (with cameras) with the 100 Cameras app (there's a free version)
- Get the ~1 million people that have already gotten the app interested in 100cameras.org
Any simple or crazy ideas are welcome! :)
