A couple of news  

Women in Trouble will be shown at the 45th Chicago Film Festival

Show Times: Oct 10, 2009 1:45pm; Oct 16, 2009 8:00pm; Oct 17, 2009 7:00pm

The director of the film, Sebastian Gutierrez, is scheduled to attend the last event. I've been told that he is a very nice and pleasant guy. He usually does a Q&A after a screening, so if you plan to go to see the movie, try to get tickes for the 17th!

The tickets for this event NIAF 34th Anniversary Gala might be a bit pricy, but I bet the food will be excellent! ;)

NIAF will honor Carla with the Foundation's Special Achievement Award in Entertainment!

Charity #1

And last but not least, thanks to waverider56 for giving me notice of this Ebay auction: Click

As I said to elyssadc, I doubt the photos are available. Anyway, a T-shirt would be also nice, just saying ;)

I assume the photos were exclusively taken for that campaign. I doubt there are available elsewhere.

Go get a T-shirt! You'll not only have the picture, you'll do something good for the cancer research as well :)

but it will cost me around 215 pesos (here a t shirt cost around 40 pesos. so it would be like the most expensive t shirt ever) :'(

*lol* Sometimes life isn't easy... ;)

For T-shirts like this, you will always have to pay more for the label alone.

But this time the money goes to the cancer research, so it would be worth to spend more money in any case.
