I have now done 19 photography shoots for my Faces of Hope project. In doing so I have met people from all walks of life who see themselves as part of a larger fellowship of humanity, compelled by this responsibility they choose to help those who are in need. It has been humbling to witness the abundance of good that has been graced upon us.

Teach Your Parents Well

Teach Your Parents Well

Thanks to that change this week I was lucky enough to photograph a group of high school aged volunteers from the Columbus Ohio area for my Faces of Hope project.
