Photographer Offers to Take Free Graduation Photos for Kids Who Can’t Afford Them

*** begin quote ***

Richard Wah doesn’t have any photos of his high school graduation – that’s because he didn’t have the money to pay for a photographer when he was a teenager.

Now that he’s 44 years old, however, he wants to give other kids the opportunities that he never had.

Richard, who works as a photographer in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is offering free graduation photoshoots to youth who can’t afford them. All the grads have to do is send Richard an email, grab their cap and gown, and show up for the shoot.

The photographer has even hired a barber and two makeup artists to spruce up the grads’ look.

The Philly resident first got the idea for the free photos when he was riding the public bus and saw a group of high school grads sporting caps and gowns – except none of them had any parents or family there to support them.

OK, it’s not Bill Gates style charity, but maybe IMHO it’s worth more. It’s personal. It’s the Good Samaritan type charity.

It makes the world a kinder place for those that need it.

All it requires is a little sensitivity to the needs of others.
