The Oxfam Asia Pacific Appeal fund [discuss] has been chosen as the beneficiary of Wetpixel's first official charity drive. The various natural disasters in the region has taken thousands of lives and made millions homeless. This charity drive is designed to help those in the region get back on their feet by providing food, shelter and later infrastructural repairs.
Donated by Doug Perrine. Order codes: WPDP or WPDPSig
All these photographs were generously donated by photographers who feel the need to help those affected by natural disaster. These prints will be available until January 15, 2010 and are available as prints in the sizes mentioned below. Currently orders can only be sent to Continental US residents as Pictopia is only uses Fedex International for delivery. However, if you live outside the continental US and would like to order prints, please send a query here to be put on a wait list. Once there are enough orders, it may be possible to mass order prints and send them out manually. As this is a volunteer project with only 1.5 people (mostly another volunteer and myself), I hope you don't mind being very precise with your orders and follow instructions accordingly. We won't have much time to field too many questions as the procedure is fairly self-explanatory.
Orders will be processed every other day and confirmations sent out from Pictopia. Payment is by Paypal only and all Paypal fees will be deducted from the final amount. So please send E-Checks and Paypal transfer (not purchase) if possible to maximize the amount donated to Oxfam.
