The Vox Photo Project, led by artist and philanthropist Dolce Wang, empowers self-expression in at-risk communities around the world through photography. Participants learn the basics of photography to capture their own stories around the themes of Interesting People and Places, A Day in the Life, and What Does Love Look Like? Join us on June 26 and 27, 2015 for a mixed media fundraising event showcasing the works and lives of Vox students in Colombia, Guatemala, Ghana, India, Bangladesh, Indonesia, and Los Angeles.
The Geefay Foundation is matching up to $15,000 in donations, and 100% of the proceeds will go back to the nonprofits that serve these students.

Thank you Volunteers for a very successful Vox Photo Project Fundraiser!
When I arrived directly from the airport on Thursday at the site of the fundraiser all I saw was chaos. My comment to Helena was that I thought you all had perhaps been a bit too ambitious in thinking that you could get everything put together by Friday evening for the event. But after working all day and almost all night with you my skepticism slowly evaporated as we went home at 2:30 AM the next morning and there were still people working their hearts out until after 5am as I was later to heard.
Such dedication to put on this fantastic display show with video special effects and photos Dolce was able to obtain from young children around the world was so appreciated. You all put out 200% effort and more. Some were still not satisfied and worked all day Saturday until the 2nd showing opened. I was absolutely amazed at your dedication to put this fundraiser together without being paid and even giving some of your own money to buy supplies and even food for the volunteers. I had the pleasure of working with some of you during the last 3 days. I felt humbled by the experience.
I apologize if I did not appear too sociable. I am somewhat socially impaired so it is not your fault that I didn't connect too much with more of you. That does not mean that I did not appreciate all your hard work and effort to make this event successful and raise $27,800. That will do much to help a lot of young people around the world.
I hope I will have the pleasure of working on future fundraisers with all of you. You are all such an inspiration to me and my wife Karen and of course Helena. Even my other daughter Frances in Texas expresses her appreciation. We thank you all from the depths of our hearts for your willingness to give so much of your precious time and energy and supplies and equipment. Thank you Disney Imagineers for putting together this small 'It a Small Small World' together in record time. Disney is such a great company to encourage you to do such things.
Special thanks goes to Dolce Wang for inspiring this presentation and vision and themes of this project and providing the many photos and worthy causes this fundraiser will support. She was the guiding spirit for the Vox Photo Project.
Special thanks must also go to Helena Geefay, who coincidentally has my last name, who produced, directeed, in part scripted, and coordinated this very complex and time constrained project that I thought could not be finished on time. Remind me not to question your competence in the future. You made me very proud. :)
