In January I traveled with 8 artists to Kenya. Everyone on the trip was moved by the beauty of the wildlife and wanted to use their talents to help protect Africas amazing animals.
I am a big believer that photography can change the world! Photography can spread love, passion and connection. This Friday on World Giraffe day, our Kenya group will be selling their art at Old Ox Brewery to raise money for the African Wildlife Foundation.
This event will be epic! We have live music, a fantastic food truck, plenty of raffel prizes all from local businesses, and artwork from Anissa Rahman, Rachel Patterson, Hilary Heicer, Devon Rowland, Leslie Holtaway, Christy Frank, Darren Gustaveson and myself.
Can't make the event, but want to support the cause and this amazing non-profit who fights daily for these amazing animals? Feel free to donate here. Any $100 donation or more will recieve a singed 8x10 giraffe or zebra print from Kristi Odom Photography.
Nearly 100 elephants are slaughtered every day to feed to the ivory trade. Rhino horn is more expensive than gold, and greedy poachers are eager to make a profit from killing these endangered animals.
The African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) is working around the clock to ensure these threatened species have a place in our future. They’re equipping anti-poaching patrols, working with governments and legislative officials to enforce wildlife trafficking penalties, strengthening law enforcement with ivory- and rhino-horn detecting canine units and reducing demand through celebrity-driven public awareness campaigns.
That’s why I started this campaign to help AWF launch more of these critical projects across the African continent — and I need you to help me!
Please donate to my campaign. Even a small amount helps.
