Photographers with a purpose

Take a look at these sites: They show how art, and a passion for a cause, can be turned into something even greater.

We've been building a map gallery, and we're looking for ways to give this more visibility, and find some sponsors, and raise money to fund all tutor/mentor programs, not just our own.

These web sites were sent to be by Jeff Curto, a fraternity brother of mine from Illinois Wesleyan, who is also a great photographer.

I'd like to recruit a partner who would create photo stories that show what happens in a volunteer-based tutor/mentor program like Cabrini Connections. I'd like to recruit another partner who duplicates these concepts, using maps and visualizations, instead of photographs, to draw attention to strategies that make more and better tutor/mentor programs available in all of the places where the maps show they are needed.

If you can sponsor or help develop this idea, call 312-492-9614.
