What is our goal in the long run?
We are a passionate group of people who want to raise awareness about about homeless or near-homeless vets through artistic photography and documentary filmmaking. We hope you can join our cause and make it your own. If we are successful, this page will be full of photographers and filmmakers a few months from here.
"Ed Moran, and Francois Gossieaux"
Francois is a longtime entrepreneur and the co-founder of Camagora, a startup marketplace for photographers and videographers. He is a veteran himself, having served for the Belgian military for a brief stint, and he comes from a family full of active members in the WWII resistance movements.
Here is Francois in his own words: "I am an avid amateur photographer, and always wanted to use my photography skills to help promote causes that I believe in. This is also why one of our core beliefs at Camagora is that we should all give back to society if we can. Every founding team member is spearheading a "do-good" project. I had previously toyed with the idea of using artistic photography and documentary filmmaking to raise awareness for the difficulties that homeless vets face as they return home. It is only when my long term business partner Ed Moran started SLap that I saw a way to turn this project into reality. I am truly hoping that with this project we can raise awareness for this worthy cause. We have many lofty goals which we will not be able to achieve without the help from others."

Ed Ed is a longtime entrepreneur and the co-founder of Slap, a startup focused on running challenges. He believes that challenges are one of the best ways to solve problems, and to collaborate.
Here is Ed in his own words: "I come from a family full of veterans, and know that we owe a great debt to the many men and women who have served our country for centuries. My family’s veterans have been fortunate to have a strong support system (and luck) in finding their way in life after their military service. I know that many veterans have not been so fortunate, however, and see this regularly as I volunteer at a local food pantry. Many of the customers at the food pantry are veterans, and struggle to feed their families and keep a roof over their head. It is not fair that we owe so much to these soldiers, but can’t seem to find a way to help them when they are in need of housing. Francois and I agree that Americans will respond if we show them how they can help homeless vets. We have faith that Americans will rise to the challenge, and will do what we can to spark and support that."
