We hope you and yours are keeping safe and well at this difficult time.
The photo industry has literally been put on hold by this unprecedented and devastating crisis, a crisis that is seriously affecting so many businesses and freelancers all over the world. Whilst still in shock, we at Previiew want to find a way we can help those who are in need right now.
Photographer Emilio Tini from Italy sent us an email today. He’s been a member of PREVIIEW since 2015, but has taken the decision to cancel his membership with immediate effect and donate the monthly fee he would normally pay us to a hospital in Italy instead.
And we fully support his decision!
It’s a decision we’ve been inspired to follow. The coronavirus has flooded Italy with immense brutality and a devastating outcome. Its hospitals are in critical need of medical supplies and financial support.
And so from today, PREVIIEW will be donating 50% of all member fees to EMERGENCY, a non-profit organization helping Italian hospitals.
We know that this doesn’t directly support the photo industry, but at the end of the day, we’re all in this together.
The following links are for two other important charity sites, shared and initiated by PREVIIEW members Dan Martensen and Giampaolo Sgura.
