Welcome to my personal fundraising page for NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness! NAMI is the nation's largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to improving the lives of all those affected by mental illness. NAMI provides education, support, advocacy and awareness so that we all live better lives.
I have created this fundraising page because NAMI, and the work they do, is very important to me. Donating to me through this page is easy, fast and secure. Both NAMI and I appreciate your donation.
The #LovePortraits story...
For Valentine's Day 2017 I wanted to create a loving place where people could come and celebrate themselves all while supporting a great cause. I wanted Love Day to be all about love and wanted to spend my day surrounded by love and giving love!
The #LovePortraits event...have a professional portrait taken by me for a $35 donation collected for NAMI. For the donation each person had a 10 minute portrait session. I sent them their favorite portrait after the photo shoot.
We had 8 participants in total. A few people donated to the cause even though they couldn't be there for the portraits. We raised $280 that NAMI will use to advocate for mental health and wellness. It was a beautiful day and I look forward to seeing this event grow in the future.
***Even if you didn't know about or weren't able to participate in our #LovePortraits Event, please donate what you can now through this page, any amount helps.***
