Towards the end of 2020 I took the plunge and applied to be a volunteer photographer for The Gold Hope Project. I was not only accepted but have already received my first assignment which I'm desperate to complete as soon as lockdown is over and it's safe to do so!
"The Gold Hope Project is a registered 501(c)(3) non profit organization. We are a group of photographers aiming to gift families battling a pediatric cancer diagnoses free portrait session for their little warriors. Many families with ill children are emotionally, physically and financially strapped; it is the heart of The Gold Hope Project to take at least one worry off their shoulders and gift them something magical – the smiles of their children frozen in time. The Gold Hope Project’s goal is to make sure that these already over-burdened families have an everlasting documentation of the joy and whimsy of their children while simultaneously raising awareness of and funds for pediatric oncology research and treatment."
What an honour to be able to gift something so precious to a family going through hell or in the case of my first TGHP client, to help them celebrate the end of treatment!
