The events in Japan, the earthquake and the tsunami, this past week have really hit me hard. Watching the devastation in real time was like watching a real life horror movie unfold. As I watched the live coverage, my heart hurt for everyone affected and I couldn’t help but cry. I don’t think I’ve stopped hugging my kids for more than 5 minutes ever since.
As I sit here days later, I don’t feel any less emotional about the situation. I knew I wanted to do something to help, but what does a photographer 1/2 way around the world really have to offer? I donated money from my personal savings, but that hardly seemed adequate, so here’s what Cristen Farrell Photography is offering:
For the next 5 regularly priced sessions booked with Cristen Farrell Photography, I will donate 100% of the session fee profits to the American Red Cross. The American Red Cross is currently providing aid to those in need in Japan.
This is a win-win situation! You get beautiful, professional photographs, all while helping with the relief efforts. Know a friend who might want to help too? Please pass them the link to this blog or our contact information. We can make a difference!
