Why? How? Not exactly sure but it has happened. It is connected to the underlying goodness of people. When they see they can help and the money will make a difference they try. This is also about the very positive effect documentary photography can have on peoples lives.
The donation Summary:

- $555 from the work fund-raiser, an additional $10 last night.
- $300 from a family who I work with, they also donated in October.
