Yesterday I had the chance to help with an organization called help-portait. It's a worldwide organization of photgraphers that get together one day a year and shoot pictures for free for poverty stricken or homeless. I worked in a small town operation of just me and the photographer. I edited phots all day and he shot. We worked with seven families, while other sites worked with hundreds.
It's crazy to think that all over the world today photographers were giving there time and talents to people in need. When I got home and started looking at the images and videos on Twitter from Milan Italy and panama, it really hit me that this was changing lives.
I have been trying to find a way to make a difference in my community for awhile with my talents, and I'm grateful for an organization like this that brings so many people together with similar needs and gifts.
