Hearts Apart

We have covered multiple photography related charities before and have another one to add to the list...


Today's charity is HeartsApart.org. Their mission states, "HeartsApart.org was created to keep families connected while our military men and women are serving abroad. Through the efforts of our community's finest photographers, HeartsApart.org provides our soon to be deployed servicemen and women with pictures of their spouses and children. The photographs are printed on waterproof and durable bi-folded cards, which fit securely in their uniform pocket. HeartsApart.org believes that our military personnel deserve and need the memory of their families to carry them through the difficult times that lie ahead. The goal of HeartsApart.org is simple. As long as servicemen and women are in harm's way and separated from their families, we will be taking pictures. There is no end to the project - just a commitment to continue to serve our Armed Forces while they continue to serve us."

The organization has photographers all around the country and is looking for more to get involved. In addition to photographers, they are also seeking makeup artists, hair stylists, wardrobe stylsits, clothing merchants, and sponsors to help with their cause.
