Help Fight Poverty One Custom Portrait at a Time
Wed, 2010-08-04 13:16 | by theadodds
During the month of August, 2010, Red Thread Photography, llc, a custom children’s portrait studio serving Northern Virginia, will donate 100% of its proceeds from portrait session fees and digital negative sales to CARE (care.org), a humanitarian organization fighting global poverty.
“As a parent, I understand that in these difficult economic times, it can be tough to make as many charitable donations as we would like, and to invest in custom portraits of our children, so I wanted to give clients the opportunity to do both at one time“ says Lisa Hager, owner/photographer of Red Thread Photography, llc.
Hager states that she chose CARE because of its emphasis on women and children and its focus on tackling the underlying causes of poverty so people can become self-sufficient and notes “I have three young children and when I try to imagine my children and I living in the poor conditions so many families must endure, I wanted to work together with my clients to make a meaningful difference in addressing poverty for these families.”
Red Thread Photography, llc would like to raise at least $5,000-$10,000 for CARE during the month of August, 2010. Hager states that she plans to continue dedicating one month of every year to raising money for charity.
Red Thread Photography, llc is an environmentally and socially responsible children’s portrait photography studio serving Northern Virginia and focuses on capturing connection and natural expression.
