To all of our supporters,

As this year comes to a close, we would like to give our utmost appreciation and thanks to  those who have supported us along the way. Without your financial support and belief in our mission, we could not exist. We are deeply indebted to all of you. Thank you!

This year Taking Focus made extraordinary strides in bringing awareness to important social issues that our occurring not only in our world, but in our backyards as well.. From the beginning our goal has been to allow other photographers and filmmakers to be able to pursue their projects that in turn would have an impact on our society. This year that goal became a reality when we held our first submission selection. Jonathan DeCamps, "Ghosts In America" and Teresa Meiers's, "Photosynthesis", we feel, are two amazing projects that will have true impact on the lives they touch. Catch up on our blog to learn more about them and consider donating to further their success.

The other profound event which took place this year was my invitation to be a part of the Orlando Museum of Art's, Florida Art Prize in Contemporary Art. This was an exhibition of ten selected artist throughout the state of Florida that the OMA felt exemplified artists that are moving forward in the contemporary art world and making an impact with their work. Being the first and only photographer selected, it was quite an honor. This opportunity was another indication that helped solidify my purpose for creating this organization. I want to thank OMA for showing images from this controversial subject, "Weed: The Story of Charlotte's Tangled Web", because here in the state of Florida, we are at a critical time.  We need people to be educated on the subject.

Please consider continuing your support; we are making great strides and need your support more than ever.

For am extended thank you to all our supporters and sponsers, please go Taking Focus, INC.

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!

Best to all,

Jennifer Kaczmarek /Founder                                                                                                                        and entire Taking Focus Team
