After the huge success is the last 10 Rode Video Mic Pro giveaway where you guys collectively raised over $25,000 for the Queensland Flood Appeal it makes sense to do another one this time to help the people devastated by the awful Earthquake in New Zealand recently.

Rode Microphones, the sponsors of my current Australia DSLR workshops have generously donated another 10 Video Mic Pros and Eric Kessler from has donated one of my Philip Bloom Signature Edition Pocket Dolly’s worth $1100. I will also be personally signing it when I go to Chicago next week, not sure if this makes it worth less or more!

Gert Kracht is donating a DVD box set of the BBC’s “Human Planet”

If anyone else wants to add to the prize giveaway let me know!

To be in with a chance of winning all you need to do is donate $10 or more to the Relief appeal, send me a copy of your receipt to this email address (you can blank out personal details if you want) and I will enter you into a drawer that will take place at 2000 GMT on Thursday the 3rd of March, where I will randomly select from the people who have donated via a live ustream broadcast. The Ustream and chat windows for this draw are at the bottom of this post…

You can donate via credit card here to the Red Cross or here via paypal to Rotary New Zealand

Thanks so much for your generosity!

I hope to see my American friends on my 12 date tour in the US and you can book tickets here! If you missed me in Australia I hope to be back within the year and will include Perth and especially New Zealand in the tour.
