TE Calendar/Book for Tsunami Victims?
 
What do people think about publishing a calendar or book of TE photos to benefit victims of the tsunami with all proceeds going to relief work/charities in that area of the world? <a href="/members/skorj/">Skorj</a> has successfully used <a href="http://www.lulu.com">Lulu publishing</a> to publish a <a href="http://www.lulu.com/content/89089">calendar</a> so it does seem doable. Any interest in this? I think this would be a good way to tangibly help the victims of this tragedy.

This is an incredible way to contribute, and to help. I would contribute in any way I can, as your write it is "good way to tangibly help the victims of this tragedy." Would you need financial contributions to get this off the ground? This is a great way to link our desire to help with a favorite art form.
It is deeply touching to me to be of this truly caring, global community, that we affectionatly call TE. In the face of this horrendous natural disaster, by reading the posts on TE we have really learned about the world and most importantly the caring humans in this world.

can you give us more information
 
regarding this interesting suggestion Adam?

how can we contribute? One way is by permitting the use of photos, the other way round is to give some money for the publishing?

This is a great idea.

I am here now vacationing in the Philippines, have just opened my emails of two weeks and was touched by numerous emails from TE members checking if I am okay. Such a caring community! I won't be as net-regular for another week. I will be flying back to Bangkok next week.

I will contribute in anyway...just email me.

This is an excellent idea. I'd contribute in anyway possible - photographs, financial for a publication, or other ways.

Adam and everyone else,
Are you familiar with whats involved in accomplishing something like this? Please share.

Thanks.
Amin.

"perhaps images from the affected areas??"

Yes, that would be the best thing if enough photos were available.

"I'd contribute in anyway possible - photographs, financial for a publication, or other ways."

The good thing about lulu pubishing is that it's on demand printing (print only what is sold) and there are no up-front costs involved.

"Are you familiar with whats involved in accomplishing something like this?"

I think it would involve a project manager-type person to coordinate getting the photos, and a design person to create the design/layout of the calendar. <a href="/members/skorj/">Skorj</a> has done this already so he would have a better idea of what it entails.
