A Call to Give: United Way NWA

Hey everybody!

Today I had another rewarding photo shoot. It seems I've had a lot of these this year. Either that or my heart has just gotten bigger and softer. I haven't finished the photos from today's shoot yet, but I wanted to put up a video that was shown during today's event from the NWA United Way.

I've been working with and volunteering for United Way for a long time now, and every time I shoot for them I meet more amazing people! Today, I met more volunteers who, like me, live crazy busy lives but are able to find time to give back to the community that has helped them.

Here's a charge to you, blog readers (especially photographers): It doesn't have to be United Way, but please find something to give back to - it can be financially, but it could also be through volunteering. Don't you have a gift that a charity could use? If you already volunteer for 5 different things, let's make it 6! The more you give...

Here is a short video that has some disturbing figures. And while we're at it, let me through out a CRAZY number: 1287! That's the number of suspected homeless in Northwest Arkansas! That just blows my mind! I've been fortunate enough to do well in business since moving to NWA and have felt now more than ever that it is the time to give until it hurts.

Talk to you soon,
