Giving Thanks by Giving Back

This is the time of the year when we reflect and give thanks. I find that I have so much to be thankful for. I have 2 amazing daughters and a wonderful son-in-law who are healthy and happy. I have a kind and loving husband of 23 years who is my best friend and the love of my life. I live in my dream home and I get up every morning and walk downstairs to work. Except I never look at what I do as work because it brings me so much happiness. To  be able to say I have been doing this for 26 years now and still loving it so much is a true blessing.

I am always happy to support all the school fundraisers in our community as well as charity auctions but I want to do more. It is my belief that when you have been given so much in life, you give back. So, my husband Larry and I sat down and decided to become true givers of the charities we support. For every portrait that we sell this year we will give a portion of the profits to these charities:

For any family portrait we sell all donations will go to The Heifer Foundation. My whole family has loved this charity from the day we first learned about them. Please go and read about them here:    http://www.heifer.org/

For any any portrait we sell of children all donations will go to The Ronald McDonald House. If you are not familiar with this wonderful charity you can read about them here: http://www.rmhc.org/

For any senior portraits we sell all donations will go to the Wren Haven House. This is a local organization who helps young people from 10 to 17 who are runaways and living on the streets get the help they need and a safe place to stay..

You can read about them here: http://www.havenhousenc.org/programs/wrenn-house

For any portrait sold with our 4 legged family members included all donations will go to Saving Grace. You can read about their good work here and while you at it maybe add a new member to your family . http://savinggracenc.org/

Please join us as we give thanks and give back.
