WELCOME DSLR and Point & Shoot photographers! - CaptureTheLight - North New Jersey is changing directions: beginning by keeping all workshops and activities that are commercially driven away from the Meetup platform. Those events and shooting opportunities will be kept at the sponsoring website: PhotoFusionUSA.com, or through
TheModelsDen. CaptureTheLight - North New Jersey will continue with a focus on social activities with photography as the main focus. That means: more events, less money, more variety. PhotoFusionUSA.com will step in as a sponsor for all CaptureTheLight meetups nationally. What it means to you: from time to time you will receive perks exclusively offered to members of CaptureTheLight.To put everything into perspective, CaptureTheLight has chosen a not-for-profit organization, MyFace.org, to be the benefactor of all fees collected through CaptureTheLight meetups less the meetup dues and the paypal or CC fees of course. The accounting records will remain open in this meetup group’s money page so members can see for themselves how much money has been raised and how muxg was sent to MyFace.org. Please take a moment to view MyFace.org’s website, See for yourself what their mission is all about.It has been my experience: when meetups are free: everyone RSVP's and only 10% show up. It’s human nature. To combat that, there will be a fee all events of $5, $10 or even more. Not for me. It’s all for charity. It’s not much per person but when combining that with the other CaptureTheLight groups on a regular basis, those small amounts ad up to a significant amount.
This way, the fees collected are justifiable, they have merit and a purpose. CaptureTheLight is committed, just as I am, to help change the lives of many. I can’t wait until the end of next year when we all see the total of all the small amounts we raised. I feel compelled to ask members, those who can spare 2-4 hours a month, to help in in any capacity possible. Whether it’s to come up with ideas for events, find venues, host events, etc. The more events, the more money is raised, and the more active the group is. It’s a win win for everyone! Let's make his happen! If you are interested in becoming an event-organizer, contact me at John@PhotoFusionUSA.com PhotoFusionUSA.com is committed too! I'll be traveling nationally starting CaptureTheLight Groups to help raise awareness of MyFace.org and donating workshops as a means of fundraising.
