"Fundraising for photography project - The 12th Man"


UK
          

First let me say that I have no idea where to post this, but seeing as I am trying to sell an idea for fundraising this seems like the logical spot.

My name is Joe Toth, I have been a member of this board for the last year and a photographer for nearly 18 years. I cover sports and news in the United Kingdom, emphasis on sports. I have always been intrigued at what sort of atmosphere fans can bring to a sporting event.

I also feel that we put to much attention on the athletes and not on the people who make them the superstars they are.

So my project is plain and simple. I am going to try and photograph as many fans as I can from football teams in the United Kingdom for a gallery showing, website, and possibly book.

However, a lot of this planning and work will cost. Mainly the travel across the United Kingdom and all other costs associated with multiple photo shoots. I have teamed-up with a non-profit organisation online, www.kickstarter.com, that allows people all over the world to back projects. I have set a certain amount I would like to raise over the course of 90 days. If I meet my target I get my funds for the project, if not, the people who donated the money lose nothing.

The positive thing for you - there are incentives to donating. For certain amounts donated, you will receive various items. There is something in it for everyone.

I have always hated asking for handouts, but as a photographer, funding for future projects always needs to come from somewhere.

If you are interested in hearing more about my project or know of anyone else who might be, please contact me or pass on my contact details. I am very passionate about making this happen in 2011 - 12.

Thank You For Your Support,

Joe Toth
