About The Carey Foundation and Dare2tutu:
It's not every day that a burly, hairy-chested man dons a pink tutu for the world to see. Then again, it's not every day that you find out that your wife has breast cancer. That's how The Tutu Project began. It was a happy retreat in the face of confusion and fear. It was born with the release of Ballerina, a powerful book of striking, joyful photographs for anyone who has been touched by this disease. Today, our mission is to raise funds for women, men, and their families to ease the financial burdens that come with a breast cancer diagnosis.
Bob Carey is a New York City based commercial/advertising photographer. His most recent personal project, shot over the last twelve years, are self portraits in a pink tutu. Don't stop reading, it gets better. Bob and Linda, his wife and business partner, dedicated all of these images to raise breast cancer awareness because Linda knows how tough this can be herself. In 2012, they raised funds to self-publish his book, Ballerina. The best part, is that the project has gone viral and the Carey Foundation was established thanks to all of you!
How can I help? Since you are on Elsa's team page, take a moment and participate in the photo/video challenge, donate and share. Your donation will go to The Carey Foundation.
