All proceeds from the exhibition will be donated to the Dream Library, a community-based project whose main goal is to build a free, innovative library chain for disadvantaged children. Up to now, the project has built 36 libraries in nine southern cities and provinces.

Fifty photos taken by Linh, some of which have won international awards, while others have never been published, will be put up for auction at the exhibition. The organizers will also offer 1,000 photo books at VND500,000 each. 

The photos and books are also available for purchase on the website
