From the first time Elaine Poggi opened the trunk of her car to show us her beautiful photographs and shared her vision for the Foundation of Photo Art in Hospitals, we have been fans. Our local hospital has benefitted from the Foundation’s work and we have observed the difference colorful photos make when they are introduced in the monochromatic, sterile hospital environment. Far more remarkable, however, is the difference made in the lives of people. The patients, their friends and family, and the hospital staff can all escape the worry and pressure of the hospital atmosphere when they see the colors and images on the walls. The photos add beautiful points of focus that help patients to think of places or things beyond themselves and hope for a better time. The Foundation for Photo Art in Hospitals is truly making the world a better place and it’s doing it one photo at a time.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
watching Elaine's commitment to her dream become reality. Her energy, imagination, and generosity are commendable.
