Good Wednesday morning to you guys! I hope everyone is ready and excited for Christmas. I know I am! I don’t want it to be over though.
December has been filled with ups and downs for the US. On Friday, December 14th, 26 innocent lives were taken from us in Newtown. I have been thinking since Friday, what can I do to help? I even asked my husband, what should we do. I felt it was our duty to help. I couldn’t imagine something like that happening here in little King William County. My kids and I are doing 26 random acts of kindness in honor of each victim. Each act will be inspired by each everyone that lost their life on Friday.
This morning a photog friend, Kelly (Kelly Allison Photography) posted something about The Olivia Act. When I read her post, I KNEW, I wanted to participate.
Kari Elizabeth Photography will be taking part in The Olivia Act. I’d be honored to help in any way I can.
Please take a moment to read and nominate someone.
The Olivia Act, named after one of the children killed in Newtown, Ct., was started by a photographer who wishes to be anonymous. Olivia’s family had family pictures taken a short time before she was killed. Those pictures are precious and now priceless to them. Upon hearing this, this photographer was moved to give away a 30 minute family photo shoot and has challenged other photographers to do the same. We go about our daily lives and sometimes we don’t take the time or have the resources to have family photos taken.
I will be taking nominations until January 11th for a family that you think would benefit from this gift. Please email me the families name, email, and phone number with a brief reason why you think they should be the recipient of The Olivia Act. Please put The Olivia Act Nomination in the subject line of the email. You may not nominate yourself. I will contact the family by phone or email once they are chosen (please do not post the families information on here). The family must live in a 30 mile radius of King William County. The gift will include a 30 minute Session, and a CD of up to 25 images, and can be used any time during 2013. Please forward this and get the word out to anyone who knows a family that this would appreciate being nominated.
