The Save the Nature Photographer Fund

December 23, 2012  •  1 Comment

This sad-looking waif is Verm. 

He's a nature photographer.  He lives in a van and hangs out at the sewage treatment plant taking bird photos when not bathing in waste water with the grackles.

No matter how much the grackle splashes around, she will never become a pearly white egret.

And so it is with Verm.  But it doesn't need to be that way, because with your charitable help, Verm can escape the sewage plant.  If you just dig the change out from the cushions in your Gulfstream, you can sponsor Verm.

For just 1200 dollars a day, you can send Verm to shoot polar bears in the arctic.  Or you can look the other way and know that the someday your selfishness will cost the world a snowcat full of great photos.  This in turn will cause folks to forget the plight of the polar bear, accelerate global warming, wipe out the pack ice, and eventually lead to global economic collapse as Coke sales plunge.  Hey, it's your choice.

What's that? After paying your alimony, you don't have enough left to be a daily sponsor?  Well good news.  For a mere one-time donation of 6000 bucks you can outfit Verm with a Nikon D4.  Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day.  Give him a D4 and you sit him behind a computer screen for the rest of his life sorting through zillions of spray-and-pray BIF sequences.

Still too much for you, Mr. Skinflint?  The there's the entry-level Tin Sponsorship, where for only 79 dollars a week you can keep Verm's brain and this blog awash in 15-yr old Highland Park.

So this holiday season, give yourself the gift of giving. And please, give till it hurts.
