Soul 4 the South Fundraiser - Valued at $3,816

soul-4-the-south

The news in recent weeks has shown unforgettable images of the devastation the south has been experiencing. First the tornadoes that ripped lives apart followed by the historical floods now engulfing homes, land and most importantly lives. Not to mention the horrendous tornadoes last night that hit Joplin Missouri with 89 confirmed deaths. Drew Bittel from Mom*tog contacted me a few days ago and asked if I would like to help her coordinate a BIG fundraiser. We have both been watching the news and it has touched our hearts, we wanted to find something we could do to help. Naturally we came to our own community, the photography industry, as you are some of the most caring individuals we have ever seen.

Together with nearly 30 generous sponsors we have joined together  to form Soul 4 the South. This virtual gift basket totals over $3,800 in prizes!!! We have brought some of the biggest names in the industry together in a huge prize package for one lucky winner. But the big winners are not the people that win the package. It IS the people of the south who will receive the gifts you are giving them and benefit during their time of need.

We have chosen Beremedy as the charity, which will benefit from the fundraiser. Beremedy is located in Atlanta, Georgia. They are close to the destruction and are able to assess who urgently needs aid. 100% of the donations will go directly to the flood and tornado victims!

Mom*tog and Photo Card Boutique have two separate virtual gift baskets, which are similar, but do contain some different prizes. You can enter both PCB's giveaway and Mom*togs giveaway, but they do require two separate entries (click here to go to Mom*tog's blog to enter Drew's giveaway).

The donations do not stop there. Katie and I both believe in this cause and will be donating 20% of all sales from Photo Card Boutique directly to Beremedy.
