We found a charity! {Special Promotions, Life Prints Portrait Design}

Posted on September 8, 2010. Filed under: Special Offers |

We are VERY excited to have found an organization that we are teaming up with for this holiday season. A while back I had put a request out on Facebook for suggestions on people’s favorite charities because we were really wanting to get involved with a group that we could help out this year.  It didn’t even occur to me that I had one sitting there waiting for us who I dealt with on a daily basis… or at least five days week!

My son attended YMCA day camp this summer and it was a fantastic experience for him.  He had kind of a rough year last school year, and with the help of an amazing staff member at the Y this summer, he has made huge strides socially and emotionally in preparing to enter this school year (which he did two days ago… I can’t believe my little guy is in the 2nd grade!)  Anyway, I was at the end of the year BBQ for his day camp and I realized how very much I appreciate this organization and what was done for my son over the summer.  I remember attending a YMCA week long camp when I was a kid and it was fantastic, but they do so much more than just summer camps for the community. Many of the kids who are able to take part in the camps, child care, etc are able to because of the scholarships that the YMCA offers.  They are a non-profit organization and much of what they are able to do in the community is due to donations.

So as a thank you for what our family has received through them, I wanted to announce a special charity promotion that we are running.  For every client who books a session by Oct 31st, we are going to donate $50 to the YMCA of Columbia-Willamette.  Our goal is to donate $5000 to the YMCA by the end of the year and we want to reward our clients who help us out in reaching that goal.  With every session that is booked and prepaid by October 31st, you will receive 25 custom designed holiday cards.  WE LOVE doing these cards for our clients and our clients rave about all of the comments they receive when they send them out to family and friends. 

We will only be booking holiday portrait sessions through November 25th in order to get all of the cards out in plenty of time, but spots have already started to fill up.  We are promoting this in close to 50 YMCA locations as well as through the blog, Facebook & Twitter, so we are expecting spots to fill very quickly.  Give us a call early to schedule, or you may miss out this year.

Thanks in advance to everyone for your support in helping out this wonderful organization that is so important in our community, especially during such tough economic times for so many of our neighbors.  Use code YMCA when you call to book your session in order to receive your complimentary holiday cards.

Take care!
