#thefaceofhiv Project Update! @kickstarter funding launched & @raTrust charity supporting

It's been a very busy and hot week here for The Face of HIV project and it's moved forward quite substantially with a new partnership with an HIV & STI education and awareness charity, the raTrust.

Last Sunday I met with the director of the raTrust who are very keen to support the project and will do so in promoting it through their networks.  They are also keen to see the project exhibited in London and will support with this too. This is very exciting news for the project and I am hopeful that the partnership with be beneficial for both parties.

This week also saw the launch of a crowd funding project to raise £2000 for The Face of HIV.  

The funds are needed to cover the costs of the project which include participant costs, photo processing, printing and framing and for web hosting and development.  

The project has been set up using Kickstarter and you can see details about it and how the funding is going by clicking on the widget to the right >>

As well as all of the exciting news above, the project has gained a further 6 participants which means that soon I will be able to arrange another photo shoot to add to the existing 10 portraits. This is great news and a very positive growth for the project and i'm sure that soon it will reach the 30 participant target.

If you can help in any way, then please donate, or drop me a line using the form on the Say Hello! page.
