From the announcement:
Donate Your Unused Digital Cameras To Children In NW Argentina
We take your old cameras and put them in the hands of Wichi children from villages all around the Salta province. They’ll take photos of their lives, themselves. They’ll have some fun. Then they’ll share their photos with you when we post them online. You get to see them smile.
What We Need:
Your functioning digital cameras. Any kind. Any age. It’s ok if they don’t have all their parts or are scratched and dented. They don’t need all the accessories, but it’s easiest if they still have a working battery. Cameras should be in basic working order. Fixing cameras is prohibitively expensive here in Salta, and it would be a shame to bring them all the way here and not be able to use them.
How To Send Your Cameras:
If you are in NYC, we will be having another NYC Matador Meetup in February. You can bring your camera with you.
If you’re not in New York or can’t make the meetup, you can mail the cameras directly to WichiWater’s Atlanta mailing address. They should arrive on or before February 12, 2011.

Any cameras that arrive before that date, will go directly to Argentina. Any cameras arriving after will be added to a pool and transported to Argentina at a later date.
