Celebrating Change – CEF Looks Back and Ahead.

A year of great images.
It’s been another incredible year for our CEF photo shoots, with shoots taking place in LA, Vancouver, Paris, London, and Toronto. Thanks to everyone who volunteered their time, talent and energy for these events! The amazing stock photographs that result from each shoot and are accepted by Getty Images to help fund educational, health care and sustainable economic development programs in developing countries around the world.
We’re excited to announce that by the end of this year, we will reach the $1 million mark of proceeds raised through CEF shoots!
- Take a look at some of the great photos on the Getty website.
- Our CEF Flickr site also has some great behind the scenes shots -- take a look to see all the fun!
A year of funding much needed projects.
We’re excited to share the latest project that CEF is supporting: the construction of a floating health clinic in Cambodia. This project enables health practitioners to bring basic healthcare, antenatal and prenatal care, preventative health care as well as disease surveillance to severely isolated and underserved regions of Cambodia along the Stung Sen River. The people living in this area are among the most isolated in Cambodia and currently have no access to the most basic health services, resulting in lowered life expectancy and increased rates of maternal and child deaths. Learn more here. This is just one of many projects CEF supports. Learn what else we’re doing around the world here. If you are interested in supporting the Cambodian river clinic or any of our projects devoted to bringing health, educational and sustainable economic development programs to communities around the world, please visit our website to find out more on how you can contribute or donate.
Time to look ahead.
It’s amazing what can happen when a creative and conscious community comes together to donate their time and resources. But there is so much more we can do in creating change in the lives of those who could use a hand up. So as we head into another exciting year, we want to ask for your help in growing our efforts and spreading the word. From a “like this” to a click of a camera, there is no end to the ways you can make a difference. Join us. Change is possible.
