Print the Love is about more than just giving away a photograph to those who have none. It is about hope, love, and encouragement. It is about uplifting others, helping them see the beauty in themselves regardless of their circumstance. It is Print the Love's vision to see every person on earth feel loved, valued, and celebrated even amidst life’s most difficult trials; that all would have access to photographs of family, friends, and life’s most cherished memories and milestones.
