After barely escaping the tornado that hit Joplin on May 22, Donald Verger was compelled to donate over 25,000 postcards to bring peace to the people of Joplin. Since then, his urge to bring peace to people has grown.

Don wants not only Joplin residents to recover, but he longs to bring peace and healing to people all over the world. His images in hospitals (Mercy hospital to name one) are soft and quiet, with what others describe as a “healing” quality. His recent Joplin Art Project and his new website sparked a new idea to offer his images to hospitals and nonprofits all over the world. His new website offers an excellent way to buy and share images with people and companies in other countries.

If any hospital or nonprofit organization is interested in obtaining one of Donald Verger’s healing images, please contact him at info@donaldverger.com with your company/hospital’s name and reason why you should receive a print. You will receive a coupon code that you can use on Verger’s website after you choose an image. All you pay is the printing cost (you save 90%!)

Please help Donald Verger spread peace across the world today with beautiful, remedial images.

Hi there from Donald’s assistant, Anne. Thought you’d like to see and read what Don’s been up to lately.

We’re fresh from an interview with calendars.com- Don will be featured in their blog about special calendars they offer. We’re so happy to have Don’s 2011 Fine Art Poster Calendar available through such a well renowned website where many beautiful calendars are available- and now they’ve decided to add the Nubble Light calendar to their repertoire as well.

Don has been busy taking roadtrips and new photographs. He was in Acadia last week and at present is in western Vermont. He’s been taking advantage of peak foliage time and the beautiful mild weather we’ve been having. Here’s a new photo for you to enjoy, taken at Frenchmans Bay in Acadia National Park, “Frenchmans Bay at Dawn.”

He’s already thinking about the 2012 Calendar season, and is planning an all-Acadia National Park calendar and assembling botanical photographs for an all flower calendar.

If you love Donald Verger’s photography, and can think of a themed calendar from his collection, let us know! If there’s a gallery in your town where you think Don’s 2011Poster Calendars should be available, we’re all ears.

HI there from Don’s assistant, Annie B.

In good news Don’s calendar is searching well on both Google and Amazon, meaning the world is finding him. If you go to Amazon now and type in, “photography calendars” or “2011 calendars” he’s in the top results. You could also click here to see his listings on Amazon. Also, if you have an opinion about his photography, he’d be so grateful if you’d write a review on Amazon. Every review counts, and your words could mean another sale and another happy person with a bit of New England on their wall.

Don has returned from traveling in Newfoundland, taking more fantastic photographs of seascapes, boats, flowers and fishing villages. He says that he and Lois will be back in time for the clam festival in Yarmouth. I’m sure he has lots of stories from this trip- I know I’ve been enjoying the picture texts of otherworldly lighthouses on craggy coasts and behemoth, floating icebergs. (I also know he’ll be glad to return to the realm of plentiful wifi.)

Thought it’d be nice to gather Don’s many interests and endeavors on Squidoo in one page, especially about the 2011 Donald Verger Poster Calendar, about which I’m very excited. There’s a guest book at the bottom, tell us what you think. The Poster Calendar is available on Amazon, and it’s a beautiful collection of some of his most famous images such as “Dawn of Peace” and others. I’m sure collectors of Ansel Adams and Linnea Calendars, lovers of fine art photography and nature photography will find these to be equally as stunning. Did I mention they’re framable? Bet you never thought of a calendar as an heirloom, but this one is.

You may have heard of the Lighthouse Depot up in Maine, a prestigious gift shop sporting the largest variety of lighthouse gifts and high-quality merchandise from all around the globe. And now, Donald Verger, is honored to be selling some of his art in this store.

Lighthouses are such a strong, solid, symbol of coastal history and many people love that beauty and symbolism these guardians offer. Often, families and enthusiasts will plan vacations to visit several lighthouses, or just a favorite one which they visit regularly. In 1992, this group began a monthly publication of Lighthouse Digest with 34 paid subscribers, and shortly after, opened their store in Wells. The store has grown over time, two whole floors full of lighthouse gifts, representing many states and 20 countries. And better still… a percentage of all sales goes to various lighthouse preservation groups around the country.

Their website offers hundreds of lighthouse tales, an online catalog, as well as links to other lighthouse sites. Lighthouse lovers can’t miss this!

Enjoy!
