CHEN PR has always made it a point to provide pro bono services to non-profits as part of giving back. Currently, the CHEN team is helping out Every Person Has a Story, known as EPHAS, with their upcoming holiday bash to take place next week, Friday December 7, at Storyville in Back Bay.
Here at CHEN we are excited about not only this great event, but about the opportunity to support a cause we truly believe in. Additionally, EPHAS has local ties in its founder, Emerson grad Ryan Ansin.
Through EPHAS, people from Cambodia, Haiti, Rwanda, South Sudan and other regions engage in multi-day workshops to learn how to use digital cameras to tell their stories. The cameras remain at their disposal, with instructors returning to help the fledgling photographers expand their skills. The best images are uploaded to the EPHAS website for purchase by interested parties ranging from premier news outlets to individuals. The money raised is put back into the program – enabling EPHAS to expand efforts at existing locations and undertake new initiatives in more countries.
The fundraiser pairs the Boston-based non-profit with Emmanuel Jal, a former South Sudanese war child turned award-winning Hip Hop artist. Jal, named 2010 Best International Rapper, is an active supporter of the group’s mission and will headline the night’s entertainment with his music that sends messages of peace and reconciliation.
The evening will be packed with fun, food, drink, music and EPHAS photography. It’s a great opportunity to have fun while helping out an incredible organization and the CHENers will be there next Friday in full support!
