Today is the Day!
The "Photographers for Good" website has launched to help our dear friend +Lee Daniels. It is the brainchild of the dynamic duo of +Barry Blanchard and +Monique Yates.
Many of you know Lee from her wonderful nature photography. Or her curation of +CATURDAY! and +Women Wednesday or from the many MANY
lovely comments she sprinkles on others' works across our G+ neighborhood. For those of you who don't her, she has been a teacher and a writer as well as a passionate photographer that not only "chases magic" but often captures it in stunning art for the rest of us to look at in awe.
Earlier this month Lee was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer. LIke many of our friends who are freelance artists, she doesn't have health insurance, which is not a good situation in today's healthcare reality. Barry and Monique have resolved to not only send positive thoughts to Lee; but to also take positive steps to help her.
The "Photographers for Good " site is a place that other photographers and artists have uploaded images to be sold as prints with all of the profits being donated to offset Lee's medical costs.. +Ivan Makarov and +SmugMug have provided the mechanisms for artists to donate their work and for others to buy it. The gallery currently contains work by some incredibly talented and generous photographers. I've been crazy busy but will be offering some work of mine over the next few days. It's easy to join me and the others listed above. If you have 1 (one) shot that is your best and you would like to donate it to this cause… start here: http://goo.gl/nIKI2
. If you would like to see the gallery and purchase specially priced art from well known artists then go here : http://goo.gl/cED9u
Lee is a strong woman and a good friend. With our help she will beat this thing and provide us with the beauty of her presence in our world for years to come.
