Philippine photographers show their mercenary side, and Charo is incensed. I think those people missed the point. (Except for Charo, who's right on. =) )
Yes, it would be nice if the Ayala Foundation offered some compensation. But hey, it's not just about money. An opportunity to meet four other photographers who care enough about the country to donate their time, _and_ an opportunity to establish or improve relations with the Ayala Foundation... Not bad! _Plus_ you get the warm and fuzzy feeling of having helped out. Good stuff.
I'm in Toronto right now, and I'm still making room in my budget for charity. I'm definitely looking for something I can donate time to. Hmm, maybe I can check if the Hospital for Sick Kids will let me volunteer to tell stories or something like that...
