I am very pleased to announce that through the generosity of a number of people, donations totaling $1,171.50 were made to the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance’s Patient and Family Assistance Fund in honor of my summer photo exhibition, “To See Things New”. As a thank you gift to those who donated, I had Printability, a nonprofit organization dedicated to placing people with disabilities in the workplace, press custom coffee mugs with the following images from the show.
Since the exhibition, I have also donated four prints to charitable auctions. The following two images two images were auctioned off to benefit Rain City Rock Camp for Girls.
And these two images will be going up for auction in my office this December.
It brings me great pleasure to be able to put my images to work in the name of raising funds for charitable causes. I have donated my time and services to a number of nonprofit organizations over the years, but being able to select images from my personal portfolio in support of charity opens up another way for me to give back. I have a few additional fundraising ideas that I am hoping to implement in 2014 and will keep you posted as they progress.
