The world of fundraising is pushing the boundaries and expanding beyond traditional ways of raising money. “I Donated” was started from a very personal experience as I initially captured these portraits to help with expenses when my mother was first diagnosed with cancer. I saw the outreach from the community and I felt compelled to do this for others; a simple idea of reaching out to help those who need it most. My mission is to provide charitable portrait sessions to individuals or families facing difficult times.
I would love to be the photographer that shares your moving story through a charity event. For a small retainer fee we can begin our journey of raising valuable funds that will allow friends and family to show support, and help them answer the question, “how can I help?” Together we will choose a date and shoot location that works in our best interest. Everyone that donates $20 will get their own vintage portrait by me that says “I Donated”. On the day of portrait session people willing to donate just need to show up, provide me a small amount of their time, and they will receive a Facebook ready image and a digital file that they can print up to a 5X7 size (includes print release). If they make a larger donation for their portrait before the date of the shoot, I will upgrade that 5X7 digital file up to an 8X10 digital file that they can keep (includes print release). Families and couples get a discount. First vintage portrait $20 donation and all others are a $10 donation. All of the funds will go directly to the charity of your choice.
“I Donated” is a personal fundraiser that allows you let others in, share your updates, and your milestones. To know how many people love and care for your journey is an invaluable gift. I believe I can help you with your charity and together we can promote the program to donors, collect donations, and support those in need. I look forward to working with you on your special “I Donated” charity event.
