www.HOGforKIDS.com • Helping Impoverished Children

A nice surprise last night at the SF NACE meeting was learning more about Gustavo Fernández, an eco-friendly wedding photographer who was one of the guest speakers.

During his presentation Gustavo showed a short video about HOG for KIDS. It's a cross country, motorcycle, fund raising ride that Gustavo created combining his talent as a photographer, his love of riding his Harley and his marketing expertise as an entrepreneur to publicize this charitable project.

From the website:

"First, Gustavo will embark on a cross country tour of the United States on his Harley-Davidson motorcycle (the HOG). This 2nd annual ride will include visits to clients and friends, with stops in at least 18 cities including Phoenix, Los Angeles, Denver, St. Louis, Chicago, Pittsburg and New York. Gustavo will perform a photo shoot of the children of these clients for a small fee. In return Gustavo will ask them to support a needy child in the DR through the sponsorship program of Children International, an international humanitarian organization based in Kansas City, Missouri. "

The website he built and his multi layered philanthropy program reminds me of what I did to try to help my cousin Tami. The Hog For Kids Project is designed to raise awareness and support for impoverished boys and girls in the Dominican Republic (DR). Many Dominican children grow up in extreme poverty, giving them a disadvantaged start in life. As these children transition to adolescence and later adulthood, breaking the cycle of poverty is daunting."

Learn more about the program by visiting Gustavo's website www.HogforKids.com.
