The title says it all. I am amazed at what a great response we had to our Give Love * Get Love project, and Austin’s Cutest Kid Contest, all to benefit Dando Amor Charity. It was great to meet some new clients, photograph some ADORABLE kiddos, and raise money for children halfway around the world, who would otherwise be forgotten. In all, I photographed 10 children. They sent the link to their family and friends, who then voted, by way of donations to Dando Amor, to award the “Cutest Kid” title.
TOGETHER WE RAISED OVER TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR DANDO AMOR!!
Yes, that is a virtual “shout” (all caps). I am thrilled to have been a part of this effort, and so proud and humbled by my wonderful clients, and their family and friends. And now the moment you’ve all been waiting for… the WINNERS!!
