Do Something Awesome Sunday!

Personal

Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday…  Did you know about the Sunday event that combines all of them?  Yes, Donate-to-charity-via-a-small-business-through-the-magic-of-your-computer-and-get-an-awesome-deal-in-the-process Sunday!  Catchy, huh?
You may know that I’ve been doing a whole lot of running lately to ramp up for my first full marathon in January in Florida (in one week I’ll be running a half marathon in Las Vegas).  You may have also seen that I’m doing it in part to raise money for the fight against multiple sclerosis, a cause very near and dear to my heart.  I figured that there’s no better way to do this than to combine forces and offer something to you all.  
Here’s the skinny: Donate to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and get half of that amount in print credit from me.
So if you donate $50, you’ll have $25 to spend of your choice of beautifully retouched 4x6s, 5x7s, 8x10s, wallets, and even canvas prints.  Donate $300 and you’ll have $150 to spend.  Donate $3000 and you’ll have $1500 to spend.  See how that works?  It’s win win: you’re supporting research, treatment, and resources for the 2.1 million people diagnosed with this miserable disease and you get some incredible photography.
Here’s what you do:
1) Go here to donate through my fundraising page.
2) Donate any amount.
3) If your portrait, engagement session and/or wedding has already been shot, check your proofbook, disk of images, or online gallery (if it’s still active) and email me with the images, sizes, and quantity you want.
    If we haven’t shot yet, I’ll simply make a note on your contract and you’ll have that credit to use later.
    If you’re a family member or freind of an LDP client you choose: use the credit for yourself or put it in their name.
4) Find out if your employer will match your donation.  If they will and do it in your name, then that’s credited to you too.
Easy peasy.
As an added bonus, I’ll include an extra special treat to the client who donates the most.
Details: Donate by December 31st, 2011 and use your print credit by December 31st, 2012 or a year from your shoot, whichever is later.  I’m offering this print credit for donations up to $3000.  If you want to donate more (you rock!), contact me and I’ll make sure you’re well rewarded.  For clients who have already donated, thank you; your print credit has been recorded and you just need to let me know what you want!
If you have any questions at all about donating, the print credit, multiple sclerosis, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, running, weddings, or cheese, contact me and I’ll do my best to answer any questions I can.
Thanks so much!
All the best,
Lindsay

Gratitude
I hope you and yours are celebrating and giving thanks with friends, family, and a monstrous feast. I know I am. Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.~ Melody Beattie
