As my post indicated earlier today, one of the two things I have planned with the American Cancer Society is coming to fruition!
As it explained, any regular price booking I shoot during the month of September, I’ll be donating $50 off the top to the ACS. The promotion (for lack of a better term) will apply to all types of bookings… babies, families, senior photos, weddings., etc. When considering the price of a general family/child session, it’s a pretty significant percentage of it because I wanted to make sure this was something that was more than a token gesture, as cancer research is very important to me for a number of reasons, the main one being it claimed the life of my dad just over 6 years ago.
I am excited to see what kind of turnout this brings about, and hope to be writing a hefty check to ACS come October. As a matter of fact, I was mentioning to the folks at ACS about how I hope it fills September up enough that I am forced to carry the offer over into October! We will see. Ideally this will become an annual event for my business.
The second thing I am doing with ACS is not something I’m ready to disclose just yet, but once it’s finalized and starts, though I don’t plan to use it in any way to promote my business, I will, I’m sure, at least talk about it.
So, if you are in need of photos and you hate cancer, or know someone who does… make sure to spread the word about this to them and book a session…
