If so, what do you do?
Twice a year I run a "Portraits in the Park" fundraiser here in town. I donate a portion of the session fee to The Weekend to End Breast Cancer. Last fall I raised over $600!!
I donate my police and fire pictures to the police and fire departments. They use them for training and slide shows.
I don't know if this counts but i am an active member of NILMDTS and Celebrating Adoption. I am hoping the next time I'm in LA to be able to donate my time and give back to CHLA as well since my daughter was a patient when she was brand new.
I help organize a charity sailing regatta each year, which supports disabled children. About 50 families with a disabled child also get to come out and go sailing that day, and enjoy the big barbecue and activities afterwards. It raises about $150,000 each year.
i'm a member of the HSUS, humane society. i donate as much money as i can for the animals. when i get time i want to volunteer at shelters.
I volunteer at a cat shelter on saturdays, I take pics for the site along with another volunteer, I help socialise the timid cats and I clean up the cat poop
Hubby and I support our local children's hospital, via organised car events.
I've not done much. I will give free senior portraits if the family is really strapped. It's hard to know when to do this. I've only been able to do it twice.
And I will make photos for naturalization for next to nothing.
Also, I'll give huge discounts to clergy.
im an active volunteer at the local humane society and i take some pictures for their website, and i also am in a homeless ministry at my church
Oh crumb, that reminds me I have to start fundraising for that weekend (not to mention training) .... any donations? ...
I have taken portraits for individuals at a homeless shelter and plan on doing more things as time goes on
I volunteer at my local animal shelter photographing (mostly) dogs for their website. I make $$ donations to our local volunteer fire/rescue service. I make clothing/misc donations to local GoodWill. I help little old ladies across the street when I can. I recycle/reduce/reuse also.
of course i give back to the community, i support all of my local bars!!! i swear i'm sending someones kid to college
