Metro support for the Philippines Appeal

26 November 2013
As a result the extreme devastation and tragic loss of life following the typhoon in the Philippines, Metro is delighted to be supporting the Prints for the Philippines (PFTP) appeal, a collaboration of photographers who have come together to sell highly collectible and diverse photographic prints to raise funds for the Disaster Emergency Committee Philippines Typhoon Appeal, donating 100% of proceeds to the worthy cause.

PFTP is a simple idea where photographers who have made quality, marketable images, and who have a desire to raise funds to help the typhoon-stricken people of the Philippines, can use one to help the other. PFTP is an online hub of photographers around the UK and potentially further afield, where each photographer's unique offer of prints for sale is promoted. The promotion mirrors the photographer's own sales efforts placed on their website, blog and on social media. The PFTP website also links to the Just Giving team page where the photographers are highlighted again and where fundraising progress can be seen against individual and group targets. The setting up of each new photographer on the PFTP and Just Giving website is handled by PFTP founder Neil Buchan-Grant a travel and portrait photographer himself.

Neil said of the campaign, "I was about to make a large donation to the DEC appeal when I realised that as a photographer, I could quite easily make my money go much further by printing my images and selling these at a reduced price to friends and followers of my work. The inclusion of the Just Giving system where all payments are made offered a good degree of transparency and accountability for the print buyers. I have already raised and donated much more than the amount I was going to donate in cash, and I've only sold 12% of my offer. When I have finished selling my prints I will have raised £3500 for the appeal. I invited a few other photographers to join and now we are receiving enquiries from others to join every day".

Metro is thrilled to be able to help by preparing prints at a heavily reduced rate for the photographers involved and in so doing adding our support to this unique project. For as little as £9.80 we will send out an 8”x10” C Type archival print by first class post to a UK buyer including vat and postage.
