Gettin’ Hitched and Givin’ Hope


Well this is the year I’m finally getting hitched;) It’s also the year I’m hoping to help give out a little hope. This summer I’ve had the great opportunity of joining an amazing team that puts together an incredible event every year called Get Hitched Give Hope (GHGH). This is an event where brides can bid on auction items such as Photography packages, Wedding Planning services, etc. and the proceeds benefit the charity chosen for that year. Wedding professionals donate their products and services to the event, and it’s a great way for the industry to come together as a whole and give back while brides get gorgeous goods.The ladies and gentlemen that run this organization are unbelievably talented and giving and every year they raise SERIOUS money for the charity of their choice. This year they are teaming up with Dream Foundation.

Dream Foundation, founded in Santa Barbara in 1994 by Thomas Rollerson, is the first national wish granting organization for adults suffering life-threatening illness

The mission of the Dream Foundation is to enhance the quality of life for individuals and their families who are battling life-threatening illness.

Dream Foundation helps adults find peace and closure with the realization of a final wish.

Along with an amazing event they host every year with the live auction and ticket sales proceeds going to the Dream Foundation; they also do year long fundraising. That’s where I come in! There are three ways that you can help me raise some money;)

First, I’m donating $100 dollars from every portrait session I book in the next 6 months to GHGH. If you need a portrait of the family for Christmas, give me a call and know that $100 of that money is headed to help grant a wish! That means any portraits session from pets, babies, engagements you name it:) A two hour portrait session costs $300 and included is a high resolution disk of images. Feel free to call or email if you’re interested.

Second, GHGH has teamed up with a company called Gividend. They are a website that filters daily deals by location and lifestyle for Seattleites. They pull from Groupon and many other similar sites, combine them all and then select the deals that you have specifically said you are looking for (entertainment, dining, health, etc…) For every person that just signs up they will donate a $1 to GHGH. It doesn’t cost a thing. All you have to do is a few clicks and voila! You’ve just raised $1! Click here to sign up!

Lastly, (based in my home state of Colorado!!) gives GHGH proceeds of any old electronics we send them. Do you have a broken or old cell phone that is just sitting in a drawer somewhere…..give it to me and I can send it in to Buymytronics and the parts will go to raise money for the Dream Foundation. This goes for any old/used/broken electronics you have hanging around the house. To find out more about how they work click here. Please shoot me an email if you have anything you would like to donate:)

Whew…that’s a lot of info I know…but it’s all going towards an AMAZING cause!

Thank you for taking the time to read this post, and thank you in advance for helping Get Hitched Give Hope raise money to grant some final wishes.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
