If you want to do something really moving...
Saturday December 4th is Help-Portrait Day.
The premise is quite simple:
1. Find someone in need
2. Take their portrait
3. Print their portrait
4. Give them their portrait
And do it all for free.
As I write this the memories from last year come rushing back, it was moving, emotional, and one of the most gratifying things I have done in the last 12 months.
One story from last year... a man brought his son in for a portrait and after we handed him the print he stared at it for awhile smiling, he then shook our hands and thanked us (repeatedly), explaining that this was going to be a Christmas gift for his wife... the only gift he was able to give her.
You can read our entire post from last year here.
If you are interested in getting involved by helping out at an event in your area (or starting one) you can get the details here.
Let me leave you with a short 2 minute video our our humble Help-Portrait day.
