Toys”R”Us Faces of Autism campaign for Autism Speaks

My images of individuals dealing with Autism are on display in 800 Toys “R” Us

and Babies “R: Us stores.  The images put a face to a fundraiser for Autism Speaks.

This is our 3rd year. In 2007 and 2008, 2.6 Million dollars was raised for

Autism Speaks. March 1st through May 1st.

In October 08 I went to Princeton New Jersey to create portraits for Toys R Us  Faces of Autism 09 Campaign to raise money for Autism Speaks. It was a great experience for me. I feel so fortunate

to be collaborating with such a great company with such a philanthropic heart.

On March 1st through May 1st images from our shoot are up in 800 Toys ”R” Us and Babies ”R” Us stores nation wide. We hope to raise millions for Autism this year. Between 07 and 08, we raised  2.6 Million. This year 260 Babies R Us stores have been added to the campaign.
