I would like to invite you and the amazing people who are part of the JOTW and DEFCON networks to what I hope will be a very special event:  “A Different View at the Doo.”  This showing at Atlanta’s dooGallery (http://www.doogallery.com/doogallery/Home.html) will also be a fundraiser for Team Rubicon (http://teamrubiconusa.org/), a charity that brings together the skills and experience of military veterans with first responders so that emergency response teams can be rapidly deployed around the world at need.  JOTW and DEFCON member C. Blake Powers is an award-winning author and photographer (when not being a consultant), and the works shown will not only pieces from his “A Different View” book series but also wolves, food, and more.  He is working to get sponsors so that they can raise the most money possible for Team Rubicon, and will even be donating 10 percent of each print sold that night to the charity.  The entrance fee will be $10 per person.  Updates and more information can be found at http://facebook.com/thereallaughingwolf and at http://laughingwolf.net.

***  Here’s how S.G. decribed the “quirky” JOTW in an oddly compelling email intended for someone else, but sent inadvertently to me:

 

Hi Alex,

 

Below is a strange but oddly (occasionally) compelling job newsletter. Jobs from the across the country (or beyond), for all sorts of communications work. It’s not the best one out there but it reminds me that there are lots of options.

 

If interested in signing up, he usually includes info at the end or you can go to http://bit.ly/JOTWSubscribe to subscribe.

 

Don’t email him to subscribe — he’s been running this quirky job list for a decade or more and gets really tired of people asking him how to subscribe when he’s provided the information.

 

I will send you a few others (perhaps more traditional) as they come in.

Cheers

 

S.G.
