Giving is Awesome! - Lindner Photographic

Giving is Awesome!

Each year, hundreds of photographers from around the country join together to give back. This year, Lindner Photographic is thrilled to be able to participate. Christmas truly is about giving, and we are so excited to be able to pay it forward this year.

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.
We want to know who they are, and we want to give them the chance to experience complimentary custom photography – $390 worth, to be exact. The winning family will receive a custom on-location portrait session, a disc of all their edited images, and 6 8×10’s.
Oh, and the best part? The person who nominates the winner will also receive a free custom on-location session (a $50 value!). 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 within the Portland/Vancouver metro area. Tell me who you know, what they’re experiencing, and why they deserve our artwork. Please include a way to contact both your nominee and yourself as well.
* You must e-mail us the full story : shootme@lindnerphotographic.com or add a comment to this blog post.
*All nominations must be in by December 31st, and the winner will be announced on New Year’s Day — get nominating! We can’t wait to read all of your entries!
Open your heart to someone this holiday season — and thanks for giving us the opportunity to open ours.

i would like to nominated family of cowlitz county sheriff’s deputy brent harris from longview, wa. you may have heard about them on the news? they recently lost their home to a house fire ~ the structure and contents were a total loss. i can’t imagine surviving a house fire, but then to also lose everything you own, including family photos from their life together…all of their childrens baby photos…family vacations…

brent is married with three children. aside from being a deputy with CCSO he is also one of a handful of k-9 handlers in cowlitz county and recently had to put his retired k-9 (nitro) to sleep.

this family has had a lot of tragedy in the last few months, so i would like to nominate them for your giving is awesome contest.

I want to nominate a family from Vancouver. She and I are old friends from high school, keeping in touch through Facebook.
Earlier this year her youngest daughter was diagnosed with diabetes. I probably couldn’t write down all the things she does for her family, friends and neighbors, but here are a few: just this morning helping out a neighbor who has a broken leg, taking hot chocolate to a cold Salvation Army bell ringer at the grocery store, helping a friend who has triplets, being a pancreas for her daughter, blogging to encourage other families with children who have diabetes, raising money for JDF, caring for, feeding and being her family’s biggest cheerleader.
If anyone deserves the title of SuperMom, it’s Her!

I’d like to nominate the family of ….. To say they are active in our church is an understatement! It makes me dizzy to think of all the ministries they participate in. A partial list includes: Women’s Bible study, worship team, SHAPE class, Kidz Worship, and youth ministry. They have tried to honor the Lord in thier finances, yet have had a continual struggle the last few years. This fall he had surgery on his low back which caused further financial setbacks. She is now seeking work outside the home and has been hired by Cotsco. They are a long way from financial stability and luxuries like a family photo have been out of the question for quite some time. In all of this, they continue to give priase to our God and never complain. Their 3 children are growing fast and I’d love for them to have some fabulous photos so they can reflect on this difficult season as a time the Lord provided thier every “need”, and even many “wants”.
