This is the post I sent out to my group in August 2012: 

CAMFAM, I have a favor to ask, I've told some of you but just wanted to let everyone know whats going on.

Kyle & I have been working on a project for the last 4 months or so, it involves Help Portraits, . I made a suggestion about doing a HP event here in Hawaii with the help of IWSSB, earlier this year in January 2012. The response was fantastic but the person I asked to take the lead had to bow out due to her work schedule. So it slowly faded into the ongoing posts in IWSSB. Soon after Kyle contacted me expressing his wishes to continue to pursue this HP event. With his help he was able to get a meeting with key PR people in the UH Cancer Center, which led to a meeting with the Hawaii Children's Cancer Foundation.

After a few other meetings, emails & phone calls, we were able to get our foot in the door & have finalized a HP Event on December 8, 2012! We were asks to take family portraits at The Hawaii Children's Cancer Foundations annual Christmas party. The families that will be attending this Christmas party are cancer survivors & current patients who are battling cancer. 

✓ This Christmas party will have aprox. 40 families to photograph.
✓ Event location : Kapiolani Children's Hospital
✓ Date: 12/8/12
✓ Event Time: 2pm-5pm
✓ Setup/break down time (aprox): 12pm-6pm
✓ We will be using Lightroom 4 & Photoshop to edit & categorize the entire portrait shoot into 1 LR catalog.  
✓ Our expenses for inkjet cartridges, photo paper, cardboard frames…have been generously covered by HCCF. 
✓ Lighting, soft box, backdrop & stand…donated by Hawaii Photo Rental

I will be making a list of job assignments, I may have to hand pick a few other people for additional help with this project from IWSSB, but I really wanted to pull from our CAMFAM group 1st, I need people I can trust to handle the bigger responsibilities, & I humbly ask you for your help in setting up this project. Please let me know if you can volunteer you time & skills by leaving a comment.
Save that date 12/8/12 on your calendar. 

There are a few more details to be ironed out as far as where we will be shooting the portraits in the hospital. 
I'd like to ask that you not make suggestions as to other people to involve in this project. As soon as I make the assignment list I'll have a better idea of how many people we need. This is not a huge event & like to keep the number of volunteers to a minimum.

More info to follow on this HP Event as we find out more details. If you have any questions, you know where to find me =)

Thank you for your kokua, 
Ryan Sakamoto

We currently have 100% response from all 13 of our member in our group. Everything is set up & all volunteers have their assignments. As I said earlier, this is a small event & we are not looking for any more volenters.

Back in October 2011 is when I 1st heard about Help Portraits when Jeremy Cowart was a guest on Photoshop TV. 14 months later we have a great group assembled here & ready for our 1st Help Portrait Event this Saturday!

So very PROUD of our group who helped coordinate this event! As our namesake, CAMFAM, we are more than a group of friends...we are family! In Hawaii, we call it OHANA, not just a group of photographers who shoot together but go out to movies, celebrate birthdays, have dinners together...Ohana! Much Mahalo's to you all for making one of my dreams a reality!!! I love you guys and lets make some memories!!!
