I love to work with people whose talent is surpassed only by the size of their hearts. Here are a few of my favorite photographers and how they are using their special gift to help those around them. I hope they inspire you like they have inspired me…
*I first learned about Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep when I visited Erin Colleen's web-site while searching for a family photographer. Her generous spirit really touched me. I can not imagine the pain of losing a child so early. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone that has suffered the loss of a child. Thank you Erin for helping families heal and providing them with tangible memory to hold onto when they are left feeling so empty and grief stricken.
Erin is also a participant in Think Pink Photography. For more information on both programs you may want to visit the Giving Back section on her site … http://erincolleenphotography.com/
*Gabriella Wright of Red Bird Photography has organized a Halloween Costume contest benefiting Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. http://www.leukemia.org/. 100% of the session fee and votes goes to this charity. You can make a donation and purchase votes benefiting this cause on her site, http://www.redbirdphotography.com/ . Click on the client section and visit the Halloween Gallery. The password is "Halloween ". The contest is in honor of a little boy named Payton Green, a very young (6 years old) Leukemia patient. This is a brilliant idea that can be modified to fit any charity you choose.
*Allyson Fuller of Picture the Moment Photography continues to volunteer her time and talent to animal rescue. Allyson adopted Knox from The Animal Rescue Foundation in Tulsa and wanted to do more for his furry friends. She now gives the foundations rescue pets the red carpet treatment and helps increase their hopes for a loving forever home. She is also offering Posh Pet photo sessions with 100% donations to animal rescue. For a look at some of her fun puppy pics of rescue pets please visit the links below…
No matter what your talent or where your heart lies there is a non-profit organization waiting for you. I am always happy to help you find your perfect match. From photos to bows and everything in between you can use your talent, time or business to make the world a better place. Even just sharing information with others and spreading the word is a huge help to non-profit organizations eagerly awaiting new volunteers and support.
