Talented photographers around the world visit Hospitals to bring Christmas Magic to Children who are sick this Christmas Time

For the past four years The Heart Project, led by photographer Karen Alsop, has run a project where they bring Christmas joy to sick children. Santa and the volunteer team first visited the Monash Children’s Hospital in 2016 to visit sick kids who weren’t able to go home for Christmas. The team created incredible photo art portraits that these families treasure, for some they have been the final portrait of their family before their loved one passed. These unique portraits magically take children out of their present situation and transport them into a Christmas Wonderland with the power of Photoshop.
