The BIG Christmas Giveaway!

The awesome Kristen Kalp came up with the fantastic idea for Giving is Awesome - Where photographers worldwide are coming together to offer a major giveway during the Christmas season for deserving families.... I am honored to join in and help bless a family in need....

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 -- $500 worth, to be exact. 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 $150 credit. 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 two-million-dollar-vacation-home in Paris does not qualify as sincere financial need.)
* The nominee must reside in or near the Cincinnati-Metro Area. 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 : amanda@donahophotography.com

The winner will be announced on Christmas Eve -- get nominating! I can't wait to read all of your entries!

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

Amanda Donaho

PS - If you have someone you would love to nominate but they are not in my area, please visit the Giving is Awesome website for a list of photographers particpating worldwide! http://www.givingisawesome.com

That's why I love you Amanda! You are an amazing, giving woman. Watching you share God's love in so many ways inspires me to do the same.

Thank you for bringing the real Christmas home again for me!
