Prints For Purpose - Please Help!
Hi friends of Benfield Photography!
As you of course know, Joplin was hit with a devastating tornado Sunday night. Meredith and I are both from Joplin, and have many loved ones who lost some or all of their belongings, and my grandmother was killed in the storm. This note isn't for sympathy (I'm jealous that my grandma gets to kick it with Jesus! She's so happy right now!); I want to encourage you to help Joplin recover. There is so much hope there, and the town has begun to stand back up and kick off the dust, but there is so much destruction that they need our help.
For the next week (ends June 3rd at midnight), I'll be running PRINTS FOR PURPOSE. I'm donating every penny to the Joplin Red Cross. I've already given sacrificially and can't give anymore. But I still want to help! If you've been looking for a way to help, I encourage you to participate in PRINTS FOR PURPOSE by simply placing a print order in your gallery (if it's expired, email me and I'll release it free of charge) and put "PURPOSE" in the promo code box. By entering the promo code, it'll take off the shipping (orders can be picked up the following week) and I'll know to donate your money. Every single penny will go to Joplin Red Cross for disaster recovery. Together, we can make a REAL difference in the lives of these victims.
Also, if you follow my blog but aren't a client, find your photographer and send them my way. I'd love for this to spread where more and more photographers help out. I'm trying to reach out to as many of them as I can, but you can definitely help!
Photographers, feel free to take my design, Prints For Purpose, and put it on your own blog and offer the same thing for your clients. You can set the time restriction for as short or long as you wish, but I ask that you please donate all the profits to the Joplin Red Cross.
