Fourteen noted photographers have joined together to fight hunger and give you a chance to own one of their rare and historic original prints of Bruce Springsteen.
Simply by making a $25 donation to the Community Foodbank of New Jersey, you can win a signed photo from photographers such as Mary Alfieri, Danny Clinch, Anton Corbijn, Pam Springsteen and many more. These are the photographers who have made most, if not all, of the iconic images of Springsteen, including the album covers for Born In The USA, Nebraska, Born To Run and others.
“Photographers Against Hunger” is encouraging fans of Bruce Springsteen to donate $25 to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey. This is an opportunity to, in the words of one of the photographers, “become a part of the spirit of what Bruce and the band have always been about,” and in return, you’ll not only be helping a noble mission in Springsteen’s backyard, you’ll also get a chance to bring home an extraordinary work of art, thanks to the generosity of these 14 noted photographers.
Your donation is your way of saying that you want to be part of this — of taking the next step to participating in the dream that we are working on.
For decades, Bruce Springsteen has encouraged his fans to support local organizations that fight poverty and feed the hungry, describing food banks across the country as “on the front lines” in this battle. Their work becomes doubly difficult during trying economic times, as the need grows while financial support proves tougher to come by. The Community FoodBank of New Jersey’s recent “We Can’t Let This Bank Fail!” campaign shines a light on the increasing difficulty of meeting demand, where in just the past year, they’ve seen a 20 percent increase in the number of people seeking food assistance in the Garden State.
For each $25 donation, you’ll be entered into a drawing for an original print by one of the Photographers Against Hunger. There is no limit to the number of donations you can make.
The goal is to reach 14,000 donations, after which 14 very lucky people will be chosen at random to receive one of the signed prints that the photographers have given to the cause. The prints will be awarded randomly to each of the 14 randomly selected donors. But of course there are no “losers” here—everyone who donates will be helping a few people who would otherwise go hungry.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for lovers of photography and Bruce’s music to own an original, signed print by the photographers who have made the iconic images of Springsteen’s career. And it is an incredible opportunity for Springsteen fans worldwide to make a small donation and in doing so, join together and answer the question Bruce posed in “Thunder Road”: “Hey, what else can we do now?”
