"Do what you can, where you are, with what you have."


I've been watching events unfolding here in South Africa during this lockdown period with growing  empathy and dismay, as well as hope and admiration - so many people are needy beyond anything any of us can ever imagine, and so many people are stepping up to help them. It really makes my heart glow!


And I've been thinking about what I can do to help, with what I have available to me. What cash I could contribute is not nearly enough, and as much as I'd love to offer something like my cooking skills, with a chronic health condition my energy is minimal and I'd simply not be able to give enough.

That's what I don't have, so I thought instead about what I do have, which is photographs.

Rather than offering photos for sale in order to donate the money to the charity I support, I decided to work on an honesty-box system.


  1. donate to the South African charity of your choice (in any way be it  financially or volunteering);
  2. let me know about it in the comments below, or email me if you're shy;
  3. browse my galleries to choose your photograph for your personal enjoyment;
  4. use the Photos For Food option to place your order.

This is my way giving back and of saying thank you, you're a beautiful person!


    Here's some links to a few worthwhile organisations to support if you don't have any others in mind:

    Peninsula School Feeding Association
    Supporting a family for a month
    Thank you, Jean! Your coupon has been mailed to you. :)
    Just made a donation to Green Guerillas very inspiring and am looking into the Peninsula Feeding Association. Very interesting but would like to work on a collaboration there with Zip Zap so lets see what comes out of it.
    Thanks for the inspiration as always
    Thanks for this lovely gesture, Andy. It is freeing for me to do something concrete with my worry about all the hungry people. (Instead of just being cross with government for doing things wrong) Have donated R2412 to the Green Geurrillas. Lots love to you. Will browse your gorgeous art now or later.
    Victoria and Sally, you're both always such an inspiration, for me as well as many others! Thank you for spreading your generous compassion around, once again!
