The Children in the Son photography project was the brain child of my friends and fellow photographers, Bill & Kelli Nixon. What better way to use our gifts, than to serve others and help those who can’t help themselves!!!
At the end of my photography time on Saturday at Waterfront Park, this beautiful and colorful young lady came up to me and introduced herself as “Deedee”. She is a former gypsy girl from Romania, and a holocaust survivor, living right here in Charleston. She saw the article in the Post & Courier about the event and wanted to come out personally to thank everyone for this wonderful service they were providing.
What a pleasure to meet someone who knows FIRST HAND what a huge benefit the Gepis learning center, that we are raising funds for, will be for the Roma people!
