A dear colleague colleague and friend of mine, who is Syrian, started an amazing campaign to help Syrian families who got relocated during the war and are now leaving in San Diego, it is called Heart4Refugees. A lot of San Diego photographers are helping out in different ways.
Last year a group of local women photographers, the Heart4Refugees organization and some generous families were able to raise $10,000 for Syrian Refugees in San Diego. We all met for family sessions and the money donated for the sessions were matched dollar for dollar by the host and sponsor for the event, the Leichtag Foundation, bringing our grand total to $20,000!!!
The afternoon was filled with beautiful smiles and gratitude. It is such an amazing feeling to be able to help out.
If you too would like to help refugees right here in our community and make a difference in their lives, please visit Heart4Refugees for more information. #heart4refugees
