Phodographer Leah Hudson at Ibo Beach, Haiti April 2009

Today’s Washington Post told the story of a rising singer Esceline Belcombe from Haiti now living in a improvised tent city after the earthquake destroyed her home. She paid to have someone sift through the rubble for valuables and scattered around are her priceless photographs. Dog Meets World aims to put a photo in the hands of all children/families in need to create their personal artifacts. Volunteer and help connect cultures through photography.
