This is a post to remind others that there is still hope in today's society. A long time FM member, who shall remain nameless since I don't know if he would be comfortable with others knowing, sent me a gift. After seeing a thread I made about using an umbrella for flash work, he offered me some help. After seeing that my current flash was an antiquated Canon 177A, and that I didn't really have the funds to upgrade my flash due to struggling financial times, he offered to send me a flash he was no longer using.
To my surprise (understatement), he sent me a Canon 580EX in like new condition, an OC-E3 off camera cord (new from the looks of it) and a photoflex umbrella. Along with an off camera flash and umbrella bracket.
It warms my heart knowing that there are others still in this world that are willing to help someone else in such a large way. I really am at a loss of words and still trying to get this through my mind that this is not a dream. Sure I've had strangers do odd things for me, but never to the monetary value of something like this. This went above and beyond anything I've ever experienced. No amount of words can express the amount of thanks and gratitude I have for what this person has done.
Let us all hope that people like this continue to exist in order to make the world a better place for not only us, but also for the future generation that will take our place once we have left this world.
Thank you again!
