Love, Inspiration, and the Healing Power of a Bob Carey's Pink Tutu

Sometimes an image share on Facebook can change our perspective on life.
Sometimes a comment a friend makes, is like a hand reaching out to you and making you feel as though you are not alone.
Sometimes just a little bit of laughter can go a long way.

I was so moved by this story of love and inspiration on Buzzfeed today, that I was compelled to share it with you. The story of The Tutu Project requires to be shared!
At this moment of giving and thankfulness, I have made my donation and urge you to do the same if you can. Because if we don't have love for each other.. than what is there?


While his wife suffers through chemotherapy, she goes through the images.. sometime sharing them with fellow patients .. and they laugh... and cry.. and appreciate how much this one man is making a difference to them in their day. It just takes one tiny act of kindness.. and your life, and that of countless others, can change forever.


As an artist, I can truly appreciate that we need to process our emotions through tapping into our own creativity.. and Bob Carey does just that. As a photographer, and dealing with his wife's Breast Cancer diagnoses, he slips on a pink tutu and begins to photograph himself.. around the world! The best of all, these images are true works of art! Stunning visuals..

Ballerina - The Tutu Project Book
Please suuport them if you can... and why not offer "Ballerina" as a gift this season?


"Last September, through the sale of prints, Linda and I self-published Ballerina. Not only is it a collection of my tutu images, it also shares many humorous stories about the adventures of a guy and his pink tulle. So far, there has been a tremendous response to Ballerina—people are particularly moved by the images. Because of their interest and enthusiasm we want to share that experience with as many people as possible.

or maybe you want to offer a set of 3 images

Through Linda’s personal battle, she has made it her goal to raise funds for women and their families that need financial support during their breast cancer journey. To help make her dream a reality, net proceeds from the sale of Ballerina will go directly to The Carey Foundation, a non-profit 501c3 organization that we established in 2012. There are so many expenses not covered by insurance, but what’s so great is that for every $1,000 raised we can make a significant difference to these women. We’ll be able to help with transportation to doctor appointments; wigs; lymphedema sleeves; childcare and counseling. To help distribute the funds we’ve partnered with CancerCare, a nationally run non-profit."
