RE: [TheCPI] Lily Romando - Aspiring Young Photographer in Charlottesville, Murdered (You Can Help)

Hi Team –


I’m glad that Laura’s message accidentally went out to all of you (not her intention) because it gives me a chance to answer her great questions!


For starters we have raised $240 in less than 3 hours!  We are 1/8th of the way to our goal! Way to go team, and keep the money coming!


To answer Laura’s questions:


1.       You do NOT have to be a CPI member to donate to Lily’s Scholarship Fund, and there are 3 ways to Donate:

a.       CPI Supporters/Members: RSVP YES to the meetup HERE and donate $10

b.      Other folks who wish to donate can send money via PayPal to “[address removed]”

c.       If you want to send a check or cash – make out a check to “The Charlottesville Photography Initiative”, 300 West Main StreetSuite 101B, Charlottesville VA 22903. Put a notation of the check for the AHS- Lily Romando, Photography/Art Scholarship Fund


2.       Info on the Scholarship is coming soon. The CPI will be holding the donations in escrow until a legal, non-profit fund is established.


Thanks everyone – please keep donating! You guys are awesome!




Christian DeBaun
CPI Operations Director

Chris -

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).
