Ed Dubrowsky was a wonderful husband, father, teacher and photographer who passed away on December 22, 2011. He had 3 severely disabled grandchildren all of whom will need life long supports. He left to them over 40,000 slides that are now being converted and made available for sale at edsperspective.com. The pictures are from all over the world and from years ago so the beauty is also in the history of these photos. This process will take a few years to complete but we are happy to be able to launch now!
The profits from this website will go to various charities that help adults with severe disabilities through advocacy and opportunity. As more and more kids age into the adult care system, less and less options await them. The money will be used in efforts to make sure every adult is safe, that they live meaningful lives and they are viewed as individuals.

He is also co-guardian of his late sister's children, one a woman age 30 who thrives living in a Developmental Center despite having no ability to communicate. The other a man, age 27 with Fragile X, who lives at home with his Dad and has access to day services. Geoffrey Dubrowsky sits on the New Jersey State Council for Developmental Disabilities and has a first hand knowledge of the issue's that this population is facing.
The following charities will be among the first that Geoffrey Dubrowsky will be funding through this effort. He is continuing to reach out to other organizations to help them make the world a better place for the severely developmentally disabled.
