Help us win $1,000!

This photo could be worth $1,000!
This photo could be worth $1,000!

Great news! One of the photos of our work in the Philippines has been chosen as a finalist in GlobalGiving’s annual photo contest! The winning photo will receive $1,000 and your votes decide the winner!

The nominated photo was taken by our Media and Marketing Director, Emma, and it shows two year old Mae with her mom. The family lives in a shack very close to the riverbank and their home is flooded several times a year. It’s often completely destroyed.

Emma’s taken a lot of photos over the years in disaster zones stretching from Peru to Vietnam to Haiti, but this picture is one of her favorites.

“I took this photo right after hearing the family’s story. They’ve been through a lot, but they didn’t seem to have lost hope. This photo stands out to me because it really seems to show how Melanie – the mom of the family - felt. She looks tired but determined and certainly not depressed. And of course, how could you not love little Mae’s face? This was the only shot I could get with her looking at me! She was so camera shy!”

The $1,000 prize will let us stockpile essential food, medicines, and bedding for Mae and her family. It will let us invest in early warning systems before floods and materials to rebuild after floods. It will make all the difference for Mae and her family, so please vote!

Vote here 

Voting lasts until July 30th, but we hope you’ll vote right now and get us off to an early lead! Thanks so much and very warm regards!
