Anni Becker is an exceptional person and invaluable member of the Vancouver, Washington Community. Not only has she been the creator and driving force behind the GRACE Project which provides art supplies and art opportunities to at risk and homeless youth within the Vancouver and Portland area, she has also co-created or organized fund raisers for numerous other charitable organizations or causes. In addition, she has been a passionate advocate for the burgeoning arts community within Vancouver, as well as a vital source of inspiration to countless people within this community through her remarkable gift as a photographer. It is because of her undeniable talent as an artist, her selfless contributions as a fundraiser, and her unfailing advocacy for the Vancouver community as a whole that we have come together to raise funds to help her buy a new camera so that she can continue to serve and inspire the community she loves so much. The nature of this gift is meant to be kept secret until May 21st, a few days before her birthday. We do not want Anni to know about this fund raising drive because we hope to surprise her with the camera during her birthday celebration. We are asking that you donate what you can until the day of the party. Even a five dollar donation will help us to reach our goal.
