Project Report | May 14, 2012
Quick update on camera project

By Steve Collins | President, YJI Board of Directors

Youth Journalism International is in the process of ordering the photography equipment that injured shutterbug Yasser Alaa needs. He has requested the money be used to buy a lens and a particular camera bad, both of which YJI is attempting to purchase with donated funds for this project.

It appears there will be enough funding for it -- though shipping remains an unknown expense until a package is ready to go out. We anticipate, though, there will be enough to provide some extra to help another Egyptian student journalist. That's our hope anyway.

We will have a full update by early June, when we anticipate successfully closing down this project.In the meantime, there is no need to donate any more money.

We appreciate the patience shown by donors and promise a full accounting soon. We will tell exactly where the donated money was spent.
