We need to come together for a cause today!
PAC: I know we are a vibrant community, and sometimes we get knocked down. Today I was made aware of terrible news. One of our Leaders, Dana (“Dafire” as you may know her) had ALL of her camera gear stolen. The odd part of this was that I finally talked her into getting insurance, which she was planning to do next week!
Let me tell you a little bit about Dana. She is the most kind and friendly person you could ever meet. She is giving and thoughtful. She donates her time to various causes such as our own Help Portrait, Comicon and the PAC Leaders board, plus many others.
(On a side note, Dana works many hours behind the scenes for PAC: planning events, proof reading articles and editing blogs!)
There are many other personal stories I can tell you about Dana that make her an amazing and wonderful person. This despicable act could not have happened to a nicer person who is completely undeserving of such a crime.
I NEVER ask anyone in PAC for anything – BUT I am asking we mobilize and start a fund to raise money for Dana to purchase her camera, I will be loaning her my backup camera a Canon 7D body; if anyone has a lens they can afford to let her borrow, we can get her going for Comicon next week!
PLEASE open your heart and donate a few dollars or equipment that you may be selling, or that is collecting dust, for this cause. I personally am donating $100 to the cause. But we will accept donations in ANY amount!
Please Pay it Forward. 🙂

BIG thanks go out to PAC member, Michael Simon, who is generously loaning Dana his Canon 1D so she can still fulfill her commitment as a photographer for the upcoming Phoenix Comicon!
Thank you, also, to all the PAC members who have kindly offered Dana words of support, encouragement, sympathy and who have offered her the use of their equipment. We have such a magnificent group of giving and caring individuals in the PAC!
Thanks to you ALL for being a part of the Photographers Adventure Club and for seeing how important this is to me.
