Giving Back

I've just added the following "Giving Back" info to both my wedding and portrait sites. I thought I would share it on my blog too! I will post the portrait event date on here as soon as I establish it :)

Each year Soul Mates Photography chooses a Charity to raise funds for through portraiture. This year there will be a special portrait event held to promote FACES Foundation and their trip to Peru. FACES Foundation is a non profit organization providing surgical treatment to children with facial deformities in low income countries. You can learn more about FACES on their website, www.facesfoundation.org.

Melissa has been invited to join FACES Foundation on their annual trip to Peru in December to document cleft lip and cleft palate surgeries. Photography is important because it builds awareness and displays the need for the children's surgeries. Photography also helps to educate the public on cleft lip and cleft palate deformities and helps promote the need for FACES Foundation.

Soul Mates Photography will be holding a portrait event in the summer to raise funds for Melissa's trip with FACES. Please contact Melissa directly for more information about this one time event at soulmatesphoto@gmail.com. Stay tuned for the event date.

You can donate to FACES directly by visiting the "How To Give" portion of the website. Please be sure to notify you would like your donation to go towards the expense for Soul Mates Photography.
