Help Nick Get To Afghanistan

My ex-assistant and good friend Nick Cardillicchio will soon be heading off to Afghanistan to shoot a portrait essay on the men and women in the Marines who are deployed in that country. He came up with the idea to coincide with ten-year anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks and pitched it to the US Marine Corp, but he hadn’t expected them to get back to him so quickly…and now he’s faced with having to fund the entire project himself or lose his opportunity. He has set up an IndieGoGo campaign funding account where anyone can donate any amount to help him reach his goal. Besides his photography and travel expenses, the USMC requires that he purchase his own safety equipment including bullet proof vest, helmet, flak jacket and eye and ear protection. Kevlar underpants are expensive folks….so please head on over to United States Marines At Work and see if you can show Nick some love?!! I know he would appreciate anything you could toss his way.

  1. Thanks Brad!
    This project has really gotten the attention of the Marines. A Colonel made the comment “I never heard of one of these media dudes doing anything for the individual troop before.” Suddenly all the approvals got done in less than a week. On top of that Marines Public Affairs asked if I will teach a photography class to their guys working in Helmand Province. Now I have to show up!
    All help is greatly appreciated.
    Nick
