the gold hope project

I recently came upon an opportunity over at Girl Hearts Camera to combine my love of family and photography, and use them to give back. I learned that the The Gold Hope Project was accepting applications and after submitting mine, I was all nerves just hoping I would be approved and selected to join the amazing team. Well... my welcome email arrived. I am officially a part of this amazing organization.

Taken from The Gold Hope Project Mission page:

The Gold Hope Project is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. The Gold Hope Project is a group of International photographers that have come together to photograph families completely free, bring about awareness, raise funds for Pediatric Oncology Research and treatment.

These purposes include:

* Photographing families of children 21 and under, who lost their battles and share their stories.
* Educating communities in which we live about Pediatric Cancer
* Support, Encourage and raise funds for Pediatric Cancer Research
* Resources for families who are facing a recent diagnosis
* Support community of other families who are facing similar Cancer diagnosis
* To photograph any child 21 and under with a current or past cancer diagnosis. They can be at any stages of treatment of be a childhood survivor.

More precious than the gold that represents them, children are our future. This year alone, approximately 13,500 parents will have to listen to a doctor tell them, "Your child has cancer."  Can you imagine?

Please spread the word about this organization.
