"The Homeless Awareness Campaign" launched on March 16th 2011, although not a fundraiser, did generate some cash, $1400 went to Youth Hope, Heidi Mayer and $3750 went to the The Salvation Army, Captain Patrick Lyons.

What is the FACE of Redlands?

This is a philanthropic project, designed to address the issue of local homelessness. Currently, there are over 150 homeless men, women, and families - with children - in our town. Funds raised by this project were donated to the local Salvation Army and the Youth Hope Foundation to directly help these members of our community. This philanthropic project also supported needed efforts to educate the people of Redlands on how best to help address local homelessness.

I was glad I to be part of this Face of Redlands art and education display. Marc did an amazing job with the photography and together we brought to light issues of homelessness in the city.

Driving up State St. just back from Maui, and alas larger than life Paul Emerson laughing at me from Shake It Up window. LOL... You were exceptional at promoting The Face of Redlands, Good work!

Hi Marc, It was a great show and I love my book. Thank you for your generosity in doing this work to benefit the homeless in Redlands and the charities that support them.


Christine said on Mar 26, 2011

The photos look great in the windows on State Street! The show was a lot of fun. I enjoyed seeing the homeless people react to their portraits and being a part of the event. It definitely brought different people of our community together.
