Has anybody held a charity photoshoot through this website?

If yes...
How did it work?
was it successful?

Do people on here think it is a good idea?
Like to hear opinions!

My take is that charity events and charities, especially those from abroad, mean that the "charity" gets the lions share of the money not those who are the subject of the cause.
I only contribute to cancer research and the Salvation Army where I know the cash goes directly to the needy.

If you feel strongly about any charity just send them a cheque.

Apart from about 16%!

They spend around £30,000,000 of your donations on fund raising

My advise, help out a charity of your choice but NEVER hold a charity photoshoot, your physical labour is better spent helping the charity.
