Make your New Year’s resolution to help someone learn photography

It's time to make your New Year's resolutions, and if you haven't decided just what they should include, we've got a suggestion: How about resolving to introduce somebody else to the joys of photography? It's something almost any of us could do, whether it's through a photo club, volunteering at a local school, or just helping a member of your family expand their photo know-how. And if you're near Los Angeles, you could even help a charity in the process!

The folks over at SLR Lounge tipped us off to the Pablove Foundation, a pediatric cancer nonprofit formed in memory of six year old Pablo Thrailkill Castelaz. Among the ways in which the foundation helps children with cancer, they and their partners -- including Epson, Lomography and Shutterfly -- provide mentoring in photography, and they're looking for volunteers to help out with their upcoming program.

The Pablove Shutterbugs website.

If you're in the LA area and have free time between January 25th and March 15th, we'd encourage you to get in touch with the Pablove Shutterbugs and donate your time to help with mentoring. If you're not available or don't live near LA, you can still help by making a donation. And you can find somewhere locally that needs your help teaching young and old about the joys of photography. A worthy resolution indeed!
