Honoring the organizations that give back

It's hard.  Life is always a battle, but when something rocks your world your first reaction isn't "Do I have pictures of my family?"  Likewise you shouldn't have to worry about the little things - step in the non-profit organization.  These groups make it easy to partner the client with the photographer to make these memories last a lifetime, with most the one in need contacts the organization and they handle the rest.  It's one less thing to worry about, but one amazing thing to keep you going later - a little something to bring back your smile in remembrance of the great moments together.  So if you do fit any of the organizations requirements - just contact them, get the portraits done, capture the memories...if not for you, for your loved ones.  Photographers, if you can join at least one non-profit, I promise it will bring you more joy than you can imagine!  I've worked with non-profit organizations of the years and I loved it ♥ being a part of something just for the joy of giving someone a gift of photographic memories is amazing.

The list is a continual list, so if I'm missing a non-profit or a new one just started let me know so I can share the link and information.  Also feel free to share the post, just a quick link will work to spread the word of these amazing groups selflessly helping others.
