Working with an organization such as the Foundation of Photo/Art in Hospitals, was an incredible eye opening opportunity. I was able to experience how the foundation impacts lives of others first hand during our donation process with St. Luke's Hospital. One of my favorite parts was how appreciative and extremely grateful the staff members were as they repeatedly told Janell and I thank you for coming to them with the donation lifting patient's spirits. I was inspired by how many lives the foundation's work is able to touch around the world. It's simply amazing. It was our pleasure to help spread the work of the foundation through social media while both Janell and I were more than willing to help Elaine with whatever we could. Thank you, Elaine, for continuing to give students a fantastic opportunity to work along with the foundation.

It has been such a privilege and humbling experience to work for the Foundation of Photo/Art in Hospitals for the past couple months. Through this opportunity, I've gotten to see first hand how much of a difference this foundation can make in the lives of others. During the hanging process of the photos at St. Luke's Hospital, there were countless patients commenting on how beautiful the art looked and how the photos really caught their attention. What I love most about this foundation is how such a small organization can make such a big difference all around the world. I also felt very appreciated throughout this entire experience working for Elaine and her foundation. Even doing the simplest things such as posting on social media goes a long way, and Danielle and I can both agree that it was our pleasure helping Elaine with whatever we could. I'd like to thank Elaine for giving Danielle and I the opportunity to work for her Foundation this semester and thank you for continuing to make a difference!

I came across Foundation for Photo/Art in Hospitals through another website several years ago. After reading about what Elaine Poggi does with her photographs and photographs of Contributing Photographers for hospitals around the world I immediately emailed her and wanted to donate one of my photographs. I have donated two photographs the past two years and both are framed and hanging in the Careggi Hospital in Florence, Italy. What Elaine does is really amazing- placing beautiful nature photographs from around the world into hospitals around the world to brighten the walls, the spirits of patients, caregivers and their families. I am honored to donate my photographs to this most worthy cause. Dolores Kiriacon, Palm Beach Gardens, Fl.

I am excited to be a Contributing Photographer for this wonderful nonprofit. Their mission is to provide beautiful photographic art to brightened up hospitals in low resource areas around the world. This helps to enhance healing by lifting the spirits of patients, family members and all the wonderful staff who work in these settings. By offering healing art for free to these hospitals, it becomes possible for there to be beauty on the walls where none has existed before. This is a very high output, low overhead organization that has inspired over 250 international photographers to donate the use of their images in support of this great cause.

The Mission of Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals is simple. They provide printed works of beautiful art to hospitals worldwide. I was very pleased how quickly the selection process went and I received lots of suggestions from them on ways I can assist this non profit to reach even more hospitals! I encourage artists to become contributers to this great program.

We often feel powerless when it comes to helping others. Sometimes we lack the means or simply don't know how.
I have found that it is the small things that often make the difference. Simple gestures we overlook and don't think about on a day to day basis.
For the ones who are lucky enough to go about the world and capture its beauty with a photo the Foundation offers the easiest way to share that moment with people who are less fortunate and dont have the same opportunity.
I am honoured my photo can be shared and hopefully bring some joy to anyone who sees it.
