Rock The Vote II - Help Alleviate Depression!

I am a candidate in IdeaBlob's running contest to win 10K toward helping a small business or not for profit grow, My entry is called 'Clicking Me Happy© – Alleviating Depression One Camera at a time'.

Idea Description:

Every picture tells a story, some good, some bad, but looking at the world around you behind a lens has a way of instantly changing your focus and perspective. Over 14 million Americans suffer from a debilitating disease called Depression. It cripples its victims emotionally as well as physically. While causes vary individually, and albeit so do the cures, empowering an individual to change their perspective is a difficult process, but it doesn’t have to be a costly one.

Mission Statement: Clicking Me Happy seeks to aid in the healing process and enhance a sense of overall well being by bringing the creative process of photography to depressed people across America.
What will you do if you win $10,000 for this idea?
Some of the immediate needs that would be filled with seed funding include: Digital Camera’s, Website Designer,Office Space,furniture and equipment, Computers and Printers.

We would love to introduce photography and printing technique, photo journaling, art exhibitions and down the line have photographers pair up with other not for profits or hospitals to use their new found skill set to aid the community. For example a photographer could be paired with a hospital to volunteer to take pictures of newborn babies, giving the new parents a priceless memory and the photographer a positive way to continue to enhance their skills and integrate themselves into their communities.

I would love to see this idea turn from a seed into a reality, vote here:

Make this your best day ever, Bless and be blessed!
