Help Portrait – Can you Help?


A while ago I was asked to help out with something called HELP-PORTRAIT.

It immediately grabbed my attention.

HELP PORTRAIT is about serving.

About getting out there and giving a gift to someone…

Heres a video taken at a 2009 Help Portrait event in NY. It touched me and may help give you all an idea of what all will go on…

Laurie Crutchfield, remember, she did our family portraits. She is heading this up for our group.

homelessShe has organized getting make up artist, photographers, assistants, editors, people to set up the backdrop stands, etc..etc…

Most of what we are doing is donation driven.. and time given. We as the photographers aren’t getting paid.

We aren’t doing this to build our businesses…

We are giving all we can… but there is one thing we really could use.

… and that is some funds to help cover the print/ink/paper cost that is going into this.

We need to raise over 1,000 dollars to cover these cost alone… and I am asking you all to help.

Maybe $20 or even just $5. Every little bit helps.

I get around 600 readers a day… and if each of us give just $2.00 – we will be set!

Anything extra we raise will go straight back into helping fund HELP PORTRAIT. None of it goes to us.

If you’d like to give, CLICK HERE – you will be given a print out for tax purposes and you can see exactly where your money has gone.

It is secure and safe. If you’d rather ship a check, e-mail me at drea[at] and I will give you Laurie’s Contact information.

Thanks you all!!

Below is a video promo for Help Portrait, feel free to share it on your own blogs…

Note: Remember all those clothes I got rid of a week or so ago? I donated ALL THE WINTER items to HELP PORTRAIT! It excites me so much to see them bless others.
