School on Wheels 2013 Education Celebration!

May 15, 2013

“Seven out of 10 Americans are one paycheck away from being homeless.” -Pras Michel

EC13-003

Did you know in Indianapolis, over 3,000 children go to sleep homeless every night?

Back a few weeks ago, Ashley and I were invited to photograph an event for School on Wheels, down in Indianapolis.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with School on Wheels, it’s an organization whose mission is to provide one-on-one tutoring and educational advocacy for school-aged children impacted by homelessness.  Their vision is to equip children impacted by homelessness with the educational tools necessary to achieve success in life and break the cycle of homelessness.

You should absolutely take a look at their website [click HERE], and read about some of the staggering statistics in relation to homelessness and how tutoring these children changes lives.

Their Education Celebration was AMAZING!  Held at the Central Library in downtown Indianapolis, they had a VIP lounge on the top floor [where I got to shake Peyton Manning’s hand before photographing him with different groups], and then dinner, an auction, and presentation of awards with special guest speakers Peyton Manning and Mitch Daniels.

Although I’m not permitted to share any of the Peyton Manning images, you can read more about his Peyback Foundation HERE and the press release for the 2013 Education Celebration HERE.

It was a great honor to be asked to photograph this event!  Special thanks to all the vendors and volunteers that made this event possible.  The School on Wheels 2013 Education Celebration grossed over $200,000 at this event, to benefit the children in Indianapolis! Thanks so much to all School on Wheels does for children in need!

ps:  For those of you looking for more ways to support the mission of School on Wheels, there is going to be a special night of professional comedy on June 13, 2013, featuring headlining comic Rebecca Corry.  You can find more information on that Indianapolis even by going here: https://www.facebook.com/events/327605017357630/
