If you find out about that organization, I would like to know about it.
I have a Minolta X700 with 35-70mm zoom and flash, for which I would not
get more than $100 that I would gladly give away to some kid who cannot
afford buying one.  I started with this camera years ago and it is still
in new shape.

It would be great if it could bring a smile and some hope to a kid out
