I just wanted to give an update on the progress so far with fundraising. Within 24 hours, I received interest from friends and friends of friends who wanted to take me up on the photography deal (of the century!). I have a wonderful couple, Jennifer Kim and Byung Kim who agreed to donate $1,000 for the wedding photography package. Thank you guys so much for the donation. It has made a huge impact on our effort and we’re feeling even better about hitting the $10,000 goal.
One more free wedding photography package
If you’re a couple who was considering my $1,000 offer, you’re in luck! I’m going to extend the offer to one more couple. If you are planning your wedding for 2010 and still in need of a photographer, donate at least $1,000 to Doctors Without Borders and I will shoot your wedding for FREE!* The package includes:
- Pre-wedding consultation
- My time for as long as you need me as well as a second photographer
- Online gallery for proofs, sharing and prints
- Artistic treatment (skin and color enhancements, B&W, etc)
- Engagement session (up to 2 hours)
- Travel anywhere
- *There will be some costs for expenses like album, prints, DVD of negatives and potential travel
For my existing clients, any donations that you make, or your wedding party makes by January 31st, I will lower your price dollar for dollar up to $1,000. Woohoo!
2 hour photography sessions still available
I still have 3 more spots open on the 2 hour photo session offer. I’m no longer limiting that to just the end of April, but through the end of 2010. So if you’re in need of summer portraits or you want me to photograph your puppy, let me know!
Everything counts, even $1
Finally, smaller donations are also welcome! Everyone that donates, even if it’s just $1 will get something. If you like any of my images, you can have them as wallpapers, or get enlargements at wholesale rate.
Thank you from our hearts
Special thank you to all those who have supported the cause and donated your hard earned money / time. We’re making a difference together and it’s inspiring to see the cooperation between different groups of people to help provide for survivors of the Haitian earthquake. Billy continues to work hard towards reaching the $10,000 goal and is deeply touched by all those who are willing to contribute even by spreading the word. So thank you again for even reading this. =)
Help spread the word!
