Love Today in Chicago? Want an original print of one of my photos? Then I’d like to ask you for 4 minutes of your time today, to watch this video. In March, I’d like to embark on a big reporting project across 7 American cities as part of the Millennial Trains Project. I want to write about and photograph how public housing communities are being impacted by gentrification. But I need to raise $5,000 to go, and if after watching the video, you think this would be a good project, I’d be immensely appreciative of your help. It’s corwdfunded journalism.
You can find out more details about the project and how to donate here: http://crowdhitch.millennialtrain.co/campaign/detail/2116. If you use the hashtag #todayinchicago in a note with your gift, I will give you a print of any Today in Chicago photo you choose, no matter how much you give!
If you’re unable to give, I would be very grateful to anyone who can just reblog the post or share the link. If I don’t raise the $5,000 in the next 40 days, everyone’s donations will be refunded.
I’ll be back with regular photo updates tomorrow!
