A Rebel With A Cause!

My students need a Canon Rebel DSLR to replace the one that they wore out. My students cover nearly all activities for the yearbook and take thousands of photos for the cause.

My Students

My students are a bunch of high-energy rascals that get into anything and everything. Their moods change with the weather. They are not little kids anymore, but they can act like it. They have the quirkiness of adults but without the ego. These kids will run with an idea until all possibilities have been explored, and keep on trying. They are a hard-working bunch who will still relentlessly ask for cookies when they do something well. To put it simply, they are fun, honest, and authentic.

My Project

My class needs a replacement digital Canon SLR Camera to empower them to venture forth and take pictures. Nothing says you're a photographer like swinging around solid camera equipment. Amid the sea of iPhones and mom-n-pop point-n-shoot cameras at every school event, there needs to be one guy with a dedicated tool willing to wade through and make a great shot. A press pass will only get you through the door while a camera can take you the rest of the way. On the other end of it are the memories that get captured an published for the benefit of the rest of the school for this year and years to come. Please donate and help us get a Canon Rebel for our cause!
