On September 25th, 2011, I will be volunteering my time and talent in an effort to help raise funds for a great cause taking place in our city.
Just BreatheÂ is a non-profit initiative taking place to raise awareness of domestic violence against women and families. The goal is to raise $100,000 in support of WIN House (Edmonton Womenâ€™s Shelters).Â The event is called â€˜Just Breatheâ€™ because the organizers believe that womenâ€™s shelters give the women and children who are victims of abuse the opportunity to find safety and take a few deep breaths.
Here is how I’ll be helping to raise funds and where you my loyal readers come in. On Sunday, September 25th, I will be setting up a mini-studio inside of Modern Urban Designers (MUD) Hair & Body Studio from 12-5. Everyone who comes into MUD that day to get their hair or makeup done can also join me for a free portrait session. Included with your session will be 1 hi-res file that will be professionally retouched and edited. Surprise a friend or loved one with your new look. Use the image to update your Facebook profile or business website with a professional portrait of yourself. In return, we are asking for a donation to support Win House. In addition, if you decide to purchase additional digital copies or prints, 50% of the proceeds will also be donated to Just Breathe.
