I am joining a ban-wagon of photographers to give away complimentary custom photography to someone who truly deserves it.  It just feels better to give than receive.  Check out the site here and the photographer who started this up.  http://www.givingisawesome.com/  Thanks  Kristen for starting this up.

You know someone. You know someone who’s experienced a tragedy, is struggling to stay afloat, is raising kids while holding down more than one job, or is volunteering selflessly despite extenuating personal circumstances. You know someone who can’t afford custom photography, but who would cherish it this holiday season. You know someone who deserves a year-round reminder of their family’s spirit, love, and beauty.

You know someone. I guarantee it.

I want to know who they are, and I want to give them the chance to experience complimentary custom photography. Whether it’s canvas or albums, prints for Grandma, or a slideshow to watch over and over, it’s in your power to give them the artwork they deserve this holiday season.

Oh, and the best part? The person who nominates the winner receives a $200 print credit when booking an appointment with Vanessa Diel Photography. What better reason to show some love could there possibly be, people?

The rules:

* You cannot nominate yourself, and the person nominated must sincerely be incapable of purchasing my services. (Being unable to make mortgage payments for a million-dollar-home  does not qualify as sincere financial need or even a half  a million-dollar-home for that matter.

* The nominee must reside in [Northeast Louisiana within a 50 mile radius of Delhi, Louisiana]. Tell me who you know, what they’re experiencing, and why they deserve my artwork. Please include a way to contact both your nominee and yourself as well.

* You must e-mail me the full story : [seth2001@bellsouth.net].

The winner will be announced on Christmas Eve — get nominating! I can’t wait to read all of your entries!  I will have help from others to help decide on the winner because that is more than I could handle by myself.

Open your heart to someone this holiday season — and thanks for giving me the opportunity to open mine.

With love and may God bless you this Christmas season!
