anybody doing anything for Haiti with their photography?

i saw a flickr group where people post a photo and auction it for a donation - the buyer sends a donation to an organization, and the photographer then sends that person a print.

anybody doing anything creative to help somehow?

I just joined that group and posted one pic, though I don't know if I'll get any bids I'm no pro, and I've never sold any of my stuff, like ever.

I'm also auctioning stuff on Ebay with 100% set to go to Red Cross/Haiti. But Ebay/Paypal still take their hefty fees, and Paypal just recently decided to put a 21-day hold on all incoming funds to my account (which has an impeccable, 130+ 100% positive feedback). This also applies for my charity auction, so they're holding Haiti charity money hostage until I get a positive feedback from the buyers. Lowlife scumbags, if you ask me.

Hrm, that's a really good idea, actually. Only problem is, I'm already tapped for this month: had to pin the budget on trading up to a decent 'normal' lens while enough was in one place.

*peering.* Hrm. For *this,* maybe I can temporarily-bodge together my analog darkroom. I had everything I needed together before the space I was going to use flooded and got all moldy. Just would have to mix soup, turn off the heat, cover a lot of openings, wait for dark, and find out the hard way how rusty my skills are...

Think anyone would buy an analog print based on a slightly messed-up scan of said analog print? My flatbed's got some serious skips in it. Leaves these skinny little misaligned bars in things.

I'll pass word of this on, anyway.
