Ever since we went to Children's Hospital of Atlanta for Christmas I keep thinking about the older patients that we met that day. They seemed so lonely and bored. Since most patients are younger the programs at the hospital are veered mostly toward them. Admittedly our fantasy photo session that we are planning to do will be geared mostly toward the younger patients as well. I have been racking my brain to find a way to do something for the older patients. What I have come up with is a workshop to teach them photography and editing at the hospital. We could even allow parents to come if space allows.
My goal would be to get 3 more Canon Rebel DSLR cameras with SD cards and 4 MacBook Pro Notebooks that have lightroom software. I would also like to get a Canon Photo Printer and USBs so they can keep their images they work on at the workshop. A nice fantasy backdrop with basic lighting set up and props would be needed as well.
I could get everything we need for right at $5000 and we would be able to maintain the workshop bi-monthly at that point at both Egleston and Scottish Rite. If you would like to donate any goods that are needed you are more than welcome to do so, please contact [email protected] to arrange details.
Please help us achieve this goal for 2017. Thank you all so much!
