Child taking picture for Salvation Army card

5 of 9
In a groundbreaking holiday project, award-winning photojournalist Linda Solomon gave homeless children in a Detroit shelter a unique and creative way to show us all what is in their hearts. The children were given cameras and asked to take pictures of their wishes for the holidays. Instead of wishing for toys, the children wished for homes, having their own beds, peace and, of course, love.

Their powerful pictures are now holiday cards on sale through the Salvation Army this year. The children's photography program was sponsored by the Taubman Company and due to the generosity of the Taubman company, 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of the cards will benefit homeless children in America.

Linda's work can also be seen in People We Know, Horses They Love.
