faces of the future

We received 2736 photos so far Add yours!

Csodalámpa Alapítvány (Magic Lamp Foundation) fulfills wishes of children between 3-18 years of age since 2003. The first photo mosaic was made in the beginning of 2013 for the foundation's 10 year anniversary, which you see above. We received thousands of photographs of your children as a result, which were made into the Faces of the Future mosaic by photographer Tamás Dezső.

4-year-old Vince smiles at us on the photo while driving a real riverboat, whose which was fulfilled thanks to MAHART Passnave in 2005. We gifted this picture to the American International School of Budapest on May 7th, 2013 for their continuous support to Csodalámpa over the years.

We would like to make the Faces of the Future mosaic an annual tradition! The final print would be donated to one of the schools in Hungary whose teachers and students supported our mission as a token of gratitude. If you believe in helping ill children find cure and support our cause, send photographs of your children to contribute to 2014's Faces of the Future! Upload as many photos as you'd like below until January 31, 2014.

The final picture will be exhibited and shared online. Invite your family and friends to join the effort!
