Thanks, for setting this up. Sounds like a great way for us to honor this young woman.
Can we direct anyone to the meet up site to donate or would they have to be a cpi member first? (I mean, I assume anyone is welcome to donate, I was just wondering about the mechanics of the site). Any more info on the scholarship? Will it go towards helping a student-high school photographer afford the supplies, or is all that still in the works? (not that it matters that much, just curious).
