Tyler Williams is the Campus Representative for Southern Methodist University, one of the 30 campuses around the country that are joining together their gifts and passions to bring real change to our projects in Africa. Learn more about the Campus Rep program here.
One of Tyler’s gifts is photography, and he had the idea to combine that gift with his passion for poverty awareness, and created his “Fashionable Poverty” photo project. We all know we could give up a few mochas a month – but what about a new pair of jeans or shoes?
Here’s what Tyler had to say:
“The idea behind this project is to create awareness, and produce action. I wanted to show that the money we spend on clothes could literally save and transform lives all over the world. My hope is that people will realize how blessed we are, and be moved to use those blessings for people that are in need. We all have several outfits in our closets, what if we all stop changing clothes, and start changing lives?”
