I just paid for a student in Bangladesh to have a Flickr Pro Account for a year which I will probably continue to pay for as long as he stays an eager photographer.
I decided a couple of months ago that I would pay for someone's Pro Account and looked through a few group threads in which people were requesting for Pro Accounts to be bought for them. I finally decided on this young man because I like his photos and because it is difficult to pay online for anything if you live in Bangladesh as hardly anyone has a credit card and PayPal isn't available. I also realised that most of the people getting Pro Accounts bought for them were young females and this guy didn't have much of a chance of obtaining one.
In a couple more months time I will pay for a account for a female member - maybe someone living in Africa or Central/South America.
