Giving it back

Joplin was my hometown for several years when I went to school (Missouri Southern State University) and worked for the newspaper (the Joplin Globe).

I was very saddened by the destruction of such a warm and wonderful community and I wanted to help it rebuild.

I set up a facebook page (“Auction to help Joplin“) and auctioned off some of my photographs and a half-day workshop.

I’m happy to share the news that I raised $3,500, and Shelter Insurance Foundation generously matched the amount, which made it to $7,000.

I’m happy I could give something back to the community that has been so warm and generous.
