On 11 March 2011, an earthquake with a magnitude of 8.9 hit Japan, and devastation through the tsunami followed.
Along with fears of radiation; food, water and fuel are in short supply. The death toll has passed 10,000. More than 17,440 people are missing. Hundreds of thousands of people have been made homeless.
Vinita and I are back! This time as a team filled with loads of ideas for an exciting new initiative!
Do you remember last year when we took part in Helping hearts for Haiti?
We’ve decided to go bigger and better, and are therefore, launching our own initiative so that we can help raise funds for Japan, and for future projects too.
Introducing… Images to Inspire Hope
We’ve got our mojo on! We have a brand new website (www.imagestoinspirehope.org), a logo and a big plan!!
But this plan cannot succeed until we have your cooperation or help.
Our chosen charity is Japan Earthquake Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund (Save the Children). As family and children photographers, this is our way of using photography to give back.
And this is how you can help…
You and your children could win a wonderful family photo session on-location in the heart of Den Haag, Gouda or Utrecht!
- This session will be photographed by myself AND Vinita and will be held on Saturday 02 July 2011. Celebrate the start of the Summer holidays! This gives you plenty of time to shop for new outfits too, if need be ;-) If you are not available on this date, don’t worry, we can make alternative plans!
- Session is for up to 5 members of the same immediate family and will last between 1-2 hours.
- Winner will also receive all their proof images in medium resolution on CD. Print to your heart’s content!
- Valued at €675!!
How to win:
- Make a MINIMUM donation of $10 to the Japan Earthquake Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund
- For every donation of $10 you will be entered into the prize draw. Increase your chance of winning; donate $30 and you’ll receive 3 entries!
- Forward a copy of your donation confirmation email to email@example.com.
- All entries must be RECEIVED by midnight (GMT+1) on Tuesday 31 May 2011.
- Winner will be drawn at random and announced on Wednesday 01 June 2011.
- You can enter as many times as you’d like, but each entry must be the minimum $10 donation.
- Session participants must sign a model release. This allows us to showcase our favourite images from your session on our blogs and on the Images to Inspire Hope website.
- Session must be held in Den Haag, Gouda or Utrecht.
- If the winner does not claim his/her prize by Friday 10 June 2011 or cannot claim the prize, then another winner will be drawn.
- This program is not sponsored or promoted by Save the Children and we are not receiving anything in return for this effort.
But wait! There’s more!
Please feel free to blog, tweet or share the link to this blog post and the Images to Inspire Hope website! Together we can help those in need.
Thank you SO much!!
