About Faces of Hope
A tax-deductible fund that supports women and children
Faces of Hope is an established tax-deductible fund that globally supports women and children’s rights by creating visual awareness and donating directly to grass-roots non-profit organizations that help sustain them through education and healthcare.
Tax-deductible donations to the Faces of Hope fund help support the grassroots non-profit organizations that Alison has met and worked with globally. The fund was created as a way for Alison to help contribute directly to the communities that she encounters through her assignments and documentary projects because sometimes making a photo simply doesn’t feel like enough. Past campaigns have focused on a tangible humanitarian need that moved her heart in those communities – tents for refugees in Haiti and Nepal after the earthquakes, funding for a mobile medical unit for Burmese refugees, piglets for families in Nepal to enable them to survive without selling their daughters into sex trafficking.
