How Photographer Bob Careys’ Tutu Raises Funds for Breast Cancer

When Bob Carey’s wife Linda was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003, they both knew the fight ahead had to include one thing: laughter (and lots of it). Enter The Tutu Project – a series of self portraits by Bob, featuring the photographer himself in various locations wearing nothing but a pink tutu.

Since the Tutu Project was established, Bob and Linda have been raising money for both men and women going through breast cancer treatment, published a book (Ballerina) and launched their own foundation – The Tutu Project for The Carey Foundation.

Here at ImageBrief we’re putting all our energy into supporting Bob and Linda’s foundation and we’d like you to join us.

In the coming days we’ll be launching our campaign to the ImageBrief community and asking you for your help to spread the word by donating social media posts through the BrandBrief app for the Tutu Foundation.

It’s a fast and easy way for you to help Bob and Linda launch the ‘Dare2Tutu‘ campaign in the month of October and we hope you’ll join us in supporting this amazing foundation.

Stay tuned to learn more.
