I was attempting lately to figure out a way I can be helpful to the disaster victims of Oklahoma and I finally found a way.
There is a wonderful organization called Operation Photo Rescue that collects damaged photos from disaster areas and finds talented volunteers to restore them. I have been blessed with the ability to do photographic restoration and have done so both through my jobs and through independent contracts for the past 5 years. This will be a perfect way for me to help out those victims of the tornado because it will allow them to get back some important memories.
it will still be some time before the command center is up and running and before I will be doing restorations, but I can look forward to that day and all the photographs I will get an opportunity to restore. Check out their website and facebook page for more information.
