I am absolutely thrilled and honored to be on the Board of Directors for Cameras for Kids Foundation for the past 4 years. During this time, I have had the pleasure of associating with many wonderful volunteers for this very worthy organization which I have seen grow from its infancy to a global phenomenon. It is amazing to see both the commitment and energy of these volunteers, especially its leader, Betsey Chesler, and how these attributes are utilized to provide a method of expression to underprivileged kids which, in turn, results in a higher level of self-esteem. I would urge anyone interested in volunteering or donating to contact our Foundation for further details. Thank you for your anticipated support!

I am honored to have been selected to serve on the Board of Directors for this wonderful organization a short time after its inception and have seen firsthand what a difference its purposes and methodologies have made in the lives of numerous kids in distress. There could not be a better person at the helm than Betsey Chesler due to her vast experience in photography, as well as her personal perspective, enthusiasm, and perseverance. I would urge anyone out there who is interested in improving our society's future through investment in these kids, whether by direct personal involvement or donation, to reach out to us - thank you!

I'm proud to sit on the board of this incredible organization dedicated to the emotional and educational growth of foster care and underprivileged children. These children are learning the components of fine art photography in addition to seeing the world through new eyes, finding beauty in the obvious as well as the mundane.
