ART: Nonprofit Photo Program for NYC Teens is Worth its SALT

SPICE OF LIFE: NYC SALT EMPOWERS URBAN YOUTH

Thursday may be the new black with crowds getting a jump start on deep discounts at stores open on Thanksgiving, some for the first time in their storied existence (i.e. Macy‘s). But instead of rushing out Friday looking for that special gift, consider doing something closer to home and support an aspiring teen with camera in hand.

NYC SALT’s new digital store is filled with original prints perfect for the holidays. You’ll find an amazing display of artistic skill, talent and creative voices throughout the site.

All sales go directly to supporting this innovative nonprofit photography and college readiness program _ paying for camera equipment, field trips and summer camp for students, many who become the first in their family to attend college.

Watch the video above to find out more about NYC SALT from participating inner-city teens and volunteers. Chances are, it’ll put you in the holiday spirit faster than all those ringing cash registers.
