GO TO THE AUCTION NOW: eBay
It’s finally that time of year again! The annual Thirst Relief Mentor Auction is scheduled to take place January 31st 11pm EST – February 3rd 11pm EST.
If you haven’t heard of the Mentor Auction, it’s this incredible event where we auction off 90 minute mentoring sessions with some of the best photographers in the business! And extras will be included with each session! (extras vary per mentor). Winning bidders will be set up with their mentor to take part in a 90 minute photography mentoring session either in person, via Skype or on the phone.
All the proceeds go directly to saving lives with clean water through Thirst Relief International. Last year the event brought in over $30,000 which we’re hoping to top this year!
