Happy Hour Fundraiser for SSWA’s first international event!

So Say We All is partnering with La Cambalacha, a nonprofit organization serving Mayan youth in Guatemala. La Cambalacha provides education in the “healing arts” which includes dance/movement, writing and visual arts to children living in the rural Lake Attilan region. Our board member Andrea Giaier will be traveling to Guatemala to teach photography and storytelling to 22 local children during the month of May during which stu…dents will learn basic camera techniques and how to tell stories through their images.

How you can help:

WE NEED DISPOSABLE CAMERAS!! Please join us at the Whistle Stop Bar in South Park on Sunday April 10th at 6pm for Happy Hour. We’d like you to bring a disposable camera. Only 22 cameras (however more are always welcome) are needed to make this happen. Developing cost will be $330 for the entire project. If everyone receiving this message donates $1 we will have more than enough to fund this incredible project, and all donations are 100% tax-deductible!

Hope to see you on Sunday!
