Featured Charity | Dog Meets World

Posted on by Charities0

From Dog Meets World:

The mission of Dog Meets World (DMW) is to give children/families in developing countries personal photographs, often for the first time. DMW seeks to change the way people travel by creating positive cross-cultural interactions and rather than simply taking pictures, to give them as well. Travelers bring along a digital camera, a portable printer and the stuffed Foto mascot dog to photograph children and practice Take & Give Photography! Practicing DMW is simple, affordable and fun and is ground level diplomacy and voluntourism for all travelers.

DMW believes that each single shared photograph creates a cultural connection and an indelible affirmation that is left behind as a personal artifact and a tiny seed of peace.

Featured Charity | Celebrating Adoption

Posted on by Charities0

This charity is not accepting new volunteers at this time.
We are working with the founder and another photographer to bring this charity back to active status.  We’ll keep you posted!

From the Celebrating Adoption site:

Celebrating Adoption is an organization of photographers dedicated to promoting adoption.  Our participating photographers are very different:  some shoot with natural light while others use studio light; some prefer posing the subject while others prefer the spontaneity of lifestyle photography; but we all have one thing in common, the desire to celebrate your adoption with you!
