Well. I've had a pretty fantastic week, how about you guys? ;)
It's been a whirlwind for me. The LEO Project has really taken off and it appears to be catching on across the nation! You have no idea how happy that makes me. <3 I am overjoyed to see the positive recognition officers all over are starting to receive with similar photos!
I figured now would be a good time to announce my plans for this project for the end of the year. This fall, I will be offering a calendar with selected images from the project (with permission from participants and their agencies for the shot, of course). Proceeds from the sales of the calendars will be donated to C.O.P.S- Concerns of Police Survivors. It took me a bit to figure out how I wanted to donate the profits. Upon going through my Father in Law's things the other day, I found quite a bit of articles and framed photos he had supporting the organization. And I remembered him speaking about them when he was alive. In his spirit, I would also like to support this cause. You can visit their webpage and learn more about what they do by clicking on the link attached below. I have not lost any friends or family in the line of duty, but it still really hits home to me. I would love to be able to support the families that have experienced the tragedy of losing their officer any way that I can.
Please keep watching for more info through the summer months on this. I will be offering pre-orders and start a sign-up for notifications on the progress of the calendar over the next few months.
I am so proud to be a part of the Law Enforcement family in my area. I have been crying tears of joy on a daily basis this week because of all the love and support you all have shown. Truly one of the best weeks of my life <3
