So, brace yourself: Firefly Imageworks will be all but unavailable from March 15 through April 19. While, email communication will still be very welcome, I’ll be in Kenya for thirty days, helping to film a documentary, take photos, and develop fundraising collateral for an orphanage called One Home Many Hopes (OHMH).
So, do email. Do call. Feel free to touch base with me however you normally would for whatever you may need. I’ll still be here for two more weeks as of this writing after all. This is just to give fair warning of the impending trip, and to give some context to clients that come calling while I’m out of touch.
As for some elaboration into what I’ll be doing: OHMH, or Mudzini Kwetu as it’s known abroad, is a home for orphaned or abandoned girls in the Mtwapa, Kenya. It finds, rescues, houses, and educates former street children and develops them into future agents of change in their community; the overarching philosophy being that investing in education and family support of children is the most effective way of ending cyclical poverty.
So that’s where I’ll be and what I’ll be doing. I know this probably puts a few clients behind, or potentially poses a problem for potential new clientele. But I promise, I’ll be back in full effect, starting April 19 (which will give me a few days to get re-acclimated to the normal working routine). Thanks for your patience and understanding as I take this once in a lifetime opportunity to not only see an entirely different world, but hopefully contribute positively to a greater story as well.
In the meantime, for more information on OHMH or to make a donation to the cause, visit: http://www.onehomemanyhopes.org/
Additionally, there are two weeks left before I leave, and admittedly, there a few equipment needs that have yet to be filled. If you feel like donating to the cause of the documentary work itself (monetarily or otherwise), get in touch with me soon as I’d love to partner on this effort with as many folks that are willing/able to help as possible.
Thanks in advance for everyone’s patience, contributions, and prayers. This should be pretty great.
