Hands on the Environment

A couple months ago I had an opportunity to work with a local organization, Hands on Charlotte. Hands on Charlotte provides volunteers to different organizations and companies around the area. for example, this specific group i photographed takes monthly visits to the Raptor Center and does landscaping and simple tasks around the grounds. Hands on Charlotte also provides tutors for at-risk youths, builders for Habitat for Humanity, etc. even though it was freezing outside and pretty early in the morning, this group was ready to work. not only were they ready but they were happy. and that is what volunteering is all about. this is what my photography is all about, documenting the effect volunteers and non-profits are having on our world. (and while i was there i got to meet an owl named Dumbledore, made it even better)
