“People helping People”

So we have been on this trip for 6 days now. And I must say I am absolutely blown away by the generosity displayed by the different hosts we have had. They have opened their doors to us and gone above and beyond all of my expectations. It reminded me of a portrait I worked on (see portraitsproject.org coming soon!) of a woman named Pat McQuain. Her story was amazing and as she talked about how her and her family recently gave away all of their yard sale goods to a family in need she said a quote that really stuck with me. “People helping people,” three words that express everything about this trip. The people who have helped us reach this point, the people we are on this trip to help, and the people who have helped us along the way so far. It has been amazing how people have come together around this organization against a single common cause.
