If anyone has any good photos from the 2010 Help Portrait event, please forward them to me at I'd like to create a photo album from last year's event on the facebook page.

Good Suggestion Peter. I just deleted all of it.

Melissa. I think that you should talk with Errnne Fullem to see you if you can take down some of the stuff from 2010. This is very confusing to look at with posts from last year popping up all over the place.

Kathy...we have not started planning the exact details of this years events yet but we will be glad to have your help! More details will come in the next few weeks. If you would like to be more involved in the planning than just helping the day of, just comment on the discussion I started above. I'm going to try and get an initial planning meeting together soon.

Is there any way of purging last yrs Dayton HP stuff? When you view the site it's all old stuff & you have to weed through it looking for new stuff. Thanks for considering.

I am really looking forward to this yrs HP-Dayton.

I was asked to share some of what worked for our H-P team on the main blog. Would love to hear some of your tips/comments too :)


Working on reimbursment of incidentals for H-P too. Thanks again for a great experience.

Very nice recap here of the global affect of the 2010 Help-Portrait event. (See anyone you recognize?!?) They called to use some of our photos :)


Wonderful job, EVERYONE!

While I am blogging my experience, I did have a chance to sit with sweet volunteer Carole Baker for this post-event recap. YOU, my Dayton team, were amazing!


Also, don't forget to add your behind-the-scenes images to the global help-portrait site. Mine here --->


Let's find a time to get together and brainstorm for 2011.
