This is a great idea: you chose a photo, buy a print and get to decide which of the signed-up charities your money goes to. Charity gets 50%, photographer gets 25%, The Nuru Project runs the business off the 25% they keep. There's a "back story" accompanying each photograph, which you receive in print if you buy, so you can connect a little with the photographer or at least hear her thoughts (I trust they will be adding more women in the coming year.)
Prints start at $50 and you have time to browse and order before the holidays.
Do the right thing this year: support a charity, and shop at your local small businesses.
