Helping children express themselves
For award winning photojournalist and author, Linda Solomon, telling stories through photography comes naturally. Now, with the help of Chevy, Solomon can help the children in the “Pictures of Hope” program do the same.
Embarking on a twelve-city tour, Solomon strives to inspire and empower local children to share their feelings of hope and dreams through photography. Starting with a lesson, Solomon will take the children through a photo exercise – teaching them the ins and outs of the camera, while aiming to help each child discover their inner photojournalist. Then, the surprise of a lifetime – Solomon will surprise the children with their very own camera, hoping to teach these children a very important lesson – that their hopes and dreams for a better life matter.
These inspiring photographs will be converted into greeting cards – depicting the heartfelt feelings each child expressed. Greeting cards will be available for purchase on Thanksgiving and 100% of the proceeds from these sales will benefit shelters and facilities in each city. Additionally, during the holiday season, customers who purchase a new Chevrolet from select Chevy dealerships across the country will receive a “Pictures of Hope” greeting card as a gift, and the dealership will make a matching donation to one of the shelters.
Always eager to give back to our community, Chevrolet is proud to be a sponsor of the Pictures of Hope program.
