Pinhole Camera - Charity Project in Romania

Hopefully this is an appropriate post for this forum?

Someone I met relatively recently, Claire Griffiths, is off to Romania soon (see http://pinholeinromania.blogspot.com/ for details )

She needs lots of stuff and some money


Basically I'm just asking if anyone has any donations for the project, we need a few things that i'm hoping some people might have hanging around and want to get rid of!

The list goes:

* Some form of timer (eg. old digital watch with stopwatch function, stopwatch etc) we need loads of these so that the kids can time their exposures!

* 10x8 Black and white photo paper, preferably Ilford, (preferably pearl/matt but that isn't too strict!) It doesn't matter if it's been in your cupboard years, anything would help, even if it's not ilford!

* a jessops safelight! (or bulbs for this safelight!)

* blackout material that we can use to make a bathroom into a light safe room.

* Black electrical tape (we need tonnes of it!)

No money is being made out of this, I am already totally out of pocket paying for flights/trains to get over there, the project is ran by donations to the charity and some fundraising has been done but we are limited!
The charity I go over with is: www.e4cn.org/


I decided to make a cash donation because I don't have any of the items on the list! Can you help in any way?

With her flatpack, home made pinhole cameras in her suitcases, Clare is off to Romania on 26 July. Check out her blog at http://pinholeinromania.blogspot.com/

Personally speaking I can't wait to see the photos that the children produce.
