I received an email earlier this week from Natalie Woods, a photographer (see, those are her photos!), a fellow Victorian and a fellow type 1 diabetic. To raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Natalie is running a great campaign through her photography business, When Shutters Click. I made the acquaintance of Natalie through Juvenation, JDRF’s social networking site for young adults. Since then, we have connected through the usual catalogue of social media outlets: twitter, email, facebook…smoke signal, carrier pigeon, etcetera, etcetera. Needless to say, when Natalie emailed me asking if I would promote her fundraising initiatives for the upcoming Victoria 2010 TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes I said, “Sure thing!” So, in Natalie’s own words, here’s what she’s up to:
“I am donating 50% of any portrait session booked by May 31st via When Shutters Click. My portrait sessions start at $75 which includes: client proofing, minor retouching, two 8×10 prints and a CD of images. The price goes up from there depending on the session (family, head shot, couple, wedding, etc.). I’m also collecting online donations via http://jdrfca.donordrive.com/participant/nwoods.”
If you’re in the Victoria area, drop by Natalie’s website and get ready to smile for the camera for a great cause!
