To the ends of the earth…and back!

Call for Photographs!–Deadline July 1

Journeys of Solutions is hosting its premier fundraising event in November 2011 and would love to feature YOUR BEAUTIFUL PHOTOGRAPHS.

We are specifically looking for photos from travels to developing nations where we currently have projects (Nepal, Nicaragua, South Africa, & Tanzania), as well as other developing nations across the world. The submissions will be judged and the photos chosen as finalists will be framed and displayed at the event. Also, they will be put into a coffee table book for sale at the event. All proceeds will go towards our projects! Ah, the Circle of Life!

Now before you join me in some warm-up lunges in preparation to reenact scenes from Disney’s Lion King, let’s stay focused! Do you have any photos of yourself with a beautiful Haitian child, or volunteering to build houses in South America? Maybe you have a photo of some African elephants, or a particularly photogenic yak?! … Good news: these are all eligible!
