During September we will participate with an elite group of photographers around the country in a very special family portrait promotion. Throughout the month we will celebrate “Family Portrait Month”, a wonderful opportunity for you to update your family portrait (or portraits of your children) and help to support Dando Amor, a non-profit charity, founded by photographers and dedicated to improving the lives of orphans living in deplorable conditions in the developing world.
During September we will donate $50 of your session fee to Dando Amor, which makes regular service trips to orphanages in Quito, Ecuador, Burkina Faso-Africa and Haiti. In 2013 Dando Amor opened its own orphanage in Quito, Ecuador. The charity also provides volunteers who raise funds for it to experience “a different kind of vacation”, so they can be personally involved in helping orphans live better and fuller lives. Volunteers have taken part in hands-on activities ranging from repairing facilities, building classrooms, and replacing sewer systems, to purchasing vital furnishings and fixtures such as cribs, beds, mattresses, as well as everyday necessities that American children take for granted.
We also believe that Family Portrait Month is a wonderful way to teach children the value of reaching out to others. Even small children can understand the importance of Dando Amor’s work, and they are eager to help these needy children.
We hope you will join us in helping to make this vital work possible. Don’t forget that the holiday season is right around the corner, so there’s no better time for a family portrait, which always is appreciated as gifts for family and friends and as holiday greeting cards.
