I am back in Switzerland after some time off in the UK catching up with family and celebrating my dad’s 70th birthday.
As an antidote to the rainy weather, I am going to feature some images I took for charity Terre des hommes last year when they celebrated their 50th anniversary in the old town of Zug. I have volunteered for Terre des hommes for several years now and was asked to go along and photograph the day’s music and activities. The event celebrated children’s charity Terre des hommes’ work project work in Togo so there was Togolese food and dance as well as various acts on from Switzerland. The event raised over CHF 8000.00 for projects in Togo. Here are some of the more colourful images from the day… and Project “Orangenverkauf” is about to start soon – more on how you or your company can get involved here.
As I have mentioned in previous posts, I am happy to donate portrait shoots for charity event raffles and last year offered one to charity Room to Read for their silent auction at the end of November. The portrait shoot raised 550CHF for literacy and education projects in India. If you would like me to donate a portrait shoot to your charity, please contact me to find out more – I have a limited amount I donate each year but I do try to accommodate when I can. I am reading founder John Wood’s book at the moment which is a fascinating and inspiring read – Room to Read raise funds for several projects including opening libraries in schools and supporting education – more on their work can be found here: http://www.roomtoread.org/
Now back to Terre des hommes and their 50th anniversary…
