The most important thing to understand about The Giving Lens and its leaders; they WILL infect you with passion. Passion for photography and passion for the NGOs it supports. After two week with my team and all the locals we had befriended, I was more sad to leave my Giving Lens family than I ever imagined I would be. My trip to Thailand was very well organized and a lot of fun. If I could get away with it, I would go on EVERY trip! My soul has been revived with the passion that my leaders and the NGO groups gave me.
