Changing worlds with photography.

"There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them.

There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord.

There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work."

1 Corinthians 12: 4-6

As a Chicago portrait and wedding photographer, I had great joy in witnessing love; now it is time to spread it to others!  Becoming a photographer was always apart of the plan. I knew that documenting life through a lens was what I was going to do. When I discovered Photographers Without Borders, I had to help be a part of it.

I am headed to Malawi Africa to document extraordinary people who donate their life to help women, children, and men access information that everyone deserves.

The NGO DIN, provides seminars on

  1. Gender equality
  2. Economic empowerment
  3. Human Right’s Protection
  4. Environmental Sustainability

The main focus of the project is to help increase community awareness on gender equality, gender based violence, and child marriage.

I know I don’t want to live an ordinary life, but an extraordinary life. I believe in order to do so we must live beyond ourselves, to do things for others and not just what’s best for you.

I need to raise 4,000 to make this a reality.

Donations of any size help make a difference.

I appreciate your time and generosity.

Thank you,

Toni Graves 

Every year, our photographers and videographers donate hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of their time to document the work of grassroots initiatives that are making a real change in this world where it is most needed. By capturing, honoring and witnessing humanity at its best, we are not only inspiring many, but we are forging new narratives of what is and what is possible. 

You can help by supporting our photographers and videographers (See the side bar to the right to see fundraisers for our most recent recruits).

Each of our official photographers/videographers is assigned a GroupRev fundraising page by PWB upon acceptance. These pages are a privilege we offer that are intended to make our programs accessible to all and enable our volunteer photographers/videographers to raise their program fees and subsidize or cover these necessary project-related expenses:

  • Airfare
  • Visa's
  • Vaccinations
  • Health Insurance
  • Travel Insurance

The following expenses are the sole responsibility of the photographer/videographer:

  • Privately arranged travel / Equipment & Equipment Insurance / Software / Extra Baggage Fees / Donation perks / Clothing / Postage/Postcard / Prints / Etc.

Photographers Without Borders® (PWB) envisions a world where we all put ourselves in each others' shoes and work together. Our mission is to inform and inspire positive change by visually communicating the ways that grassroots initiatives are addressing problems in their communities. PWB is registered as a charity in the United States with 501(c)(3) status and is registered as a not-for-profit organization in Canada. All donations are calculated in US Dollars and are tax-deductible for Americans and Canadians with US income.

PWB is not responsible for any donations made outside of these pages.

Any overage amounts raised on GroupRev will be donated with the photographers direction, 100% to the Organization, 100% to PWB or split 50/50, between the photographer's/videographer's assigned cause and PWB, which is also a volunteer-run organization.
