Ever wonder how we got so lucky? I mean, in this country, we are so blessed. So many things we just take for granted, like clean water, fresh food, a bed to sleep in. As a mother, I am constantly trying to make sure my children have all that they need, and most of what they want. But I’ve been searching for ways to help instill the lesson of “be thankful for what you have.”
Last fall I learned about a charity started by a couple of my photography friends and mentors, Travis Gugelman and Lori Nordstrom. It is called dando amor, which means “giving love.” Like many things that cross my desk/email in the “busy season,” I spent a few minutes reading the posts of the people participating, made an online donation, and planned to bookmark it for later, when I’m not so busy. But reading the blog posts, I found myself with tears streaming down my cheeks. Reading about these kids who have, literally, nothing, yet are still smiling, still going on, and loving. Amidst my “busy season” it really stopped me in my tracks. I had to help, somehow.
With that thought in mind, and the holiday of “LOVE” upon us, I’m excited to announce the “Give Love * Get Love” promotion. February 9 – 25, your donation of $39 per person – made directly to dando amor – gets you a FREE child session at Teri Mason Photography. Plus, at the end of the promotion, we will post our favorite image from each session and hold a “Cutest Kid” Contest. We’ve already got some GREAT prizes lined up – including a 3-day vacation getaway, a gourmet cheesecake, and a photo session package worth $2000 – and more prizes on the way.
Wouldn’t it be amazing to donate $1000 to this amazing charity? That would be 25 sessions – yes, I’d be working my little behind off, but I’d be so thrilled to be a part of that. Wouldn’t you? Give me a call today to set up your cute kid session, and please, forward this to your friends!! 512-930-1902 firstname.lastname@example.org
