Pictures For A Purpose

Your child's smile could help save a life ...

Eastside Women of Purpose is launching their 1st annual Pictures for a Purpose fundraiser!

We have five super-talented photographers lined up to photograph our kiddos on Saturday, June 28th from 9am to 6pm.

The coolest part is that every photographer is donating their entire day and all profits to Eastside Women of Purpose! Everything we make will go towards programs that help protect children at risk of being trafficked in South East Asia.

Experts estimate 5.7 million children are trapped in forced or bonded labor. About one million of these children are exploited in the sex trade each year (Source: UNICEF). Many times, unwitting parent hand over their children to slavers under false pretenses, such as promises of schooling.

You can help.

Take advantage of this opportunity to secure a lasting memory of your child. All proceeds will be used to pay for desperately needed educational and training resources used by World Concern to combat child trafficking throughout SE Asia.

Your $30 sitting fee goes directly to this cause. Pick the photos you like from our easy-t0-use website -- flexible a la carte pricing lets you pick the photos and sizes you want. The site will even change the pictures to black and white or sepia tone for you! There is no obligation to buy. Again, all of the proceeds from this event will go towards this project.

We have just started selling photo sessions at OCC or by finding an Eastside Women of Purpose member (that's me!). If you live in the Seattle area and would like to participate but have absolutely no idea where OCC is, feel free to comment on this posting or visit picsforapurpose.com to schedule an appointment!

Last but not least: Thank you so much for your support!
