The Joel Project

Have you heard of it?  Photographer Melanie Rose Prince is working on a project that will eventually become a book.  She is traveling the country photographing kids with Down syndrome to be a part of her book that will celebrate the beauty and essence of Down syndrome.  This project is inspired by her brother Joel.

You can read more about it here.  Her first round of fundraising is over, but I know she has more coming.  She is doing this all for FREE.  Travel and cost of everything is being covered either by donation or herself!  

Guess which city collectively contributed the most in her first round of fundraising???  DALLAS!!!

Guess who is on the schedule to be a part of that photo shoot???  AUBREY

We are overwhelmed by her heart and the project and honored to be a part of it.  We can't wait to see the final product. 

Follow Joel & Friends on facebook for updates, city announcements and sneak peaks!  You'll see Aubrey there (hopefully) in June sometime:)  We'll let you know.
