Heart Gallery exhibit for Georgia's foster children

October 2, 2006 ATLANTA – Gift for a Child, Inc. and the Heart Gallery Southeast, in cooperation with the Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) is hosting a Photographic exhibit at the Bank of America Plaza in Downtown Atlanta beginning October 3rd to benefit Children in foster care. This latest exhibit is a creation of Gift for a Child and the Heart Gallery Southeast and gives people an opportunity to see some of the over 2000 Georgia children in need of an adoptive home.

"The Heart Gallery is opening a door, which will help us to reach ordinary Georgians who are interested in opening their doors and their hearts to one of the 14,000 Georgia foster children in need," said Mary Dean Harvey.

Bank of America Plaza is located at 600 Peachtree Street, N.E., Atlanta, Georgia. The display is located on the North Avenue side of the lobby area. The Heart Gallery exhibit is open to the public, Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm. There is no charge for admission. For more information on the Heart Gallery visit

Heart Gallery Georgia Photographic Exhibit of Children in Foster Care to Debut at Imagine It! The Children’s Museum of Atlanta

Atlanta, Georgia   November 16, 2006   Professional photographers from across Georgia are using their cameras to help raise awareness about the thousands of foster children hoping for a permanent home and family. These museum-quality photos will be unveiled November 18 at Imagine It! The Children’s Museum of Atlanta, on the opening day of their newest exhibit, “Little Hands…Big Difference”, developed in partnership with Hands On Atlanta to encourage family volunteerism. November 18 is also National Adoption Day and Family Volunteerism Day.

Seeing these photos of children can be a moving experience, especially for potential adoptive parents. Often gallery attendees see something in a particular child’s photograph that connects with them, and many times that first connection leads to a lifelong relationship. Gift for a Child launched its first Heart Gallery exhibit in May at the Concourse. Thirty-seven of the 100 children featured in the Heart Gallery Georgia are now headed towards adoption.

“We are thrilled to include these beautiful portraits during the run of “Little Hands…Big Difference”, said Jane Turner, executive director of Imagine It! “There is a natural connection during this unique exhibit on community service to provide an opportunity for families visiting the Museum to visually meet and learn about the lives of children impacted by foster care.”

The Heart Gallery Georgia exhibit closed at Bank of America Plaza in midtown last month and can be seen at Imagine It! The Children’s Museum of Atlanta beginning November 18, 2006. In Tennessee, a similar Gift for a Child exhibit of foster children recently ended a 9-city preview tour.
