Thanks for your interest in helping with our event. Below are some ways you can assist us - either in person or with donations.
I am organizing a free portrait event on December 3 from 9 to 2 at Unleavened Bread Cafe at 30th & Central (Indy). Other photographers and I are taking in our gear and taking family photos for FREE with free PRINTS ... with help from assistants, hair/make-up artists, greeters, registration people, and more. Santa and one of his elves will be there, too! Those prints are also free.
If you know this area, you know there is a lot of need. We hope we have a full and busy day of providing portraits for these families - and Santa photos for some children who may not otherwise have that opportunity because of cost.
Want to help but can't be there? We can use the following:
Tax-deductible (as allowed by law in your circumstances) donations can be made, details below. Those donations will be used to purchase prints, clear sleeves to protect the prints, envelopes and postage as necessary.
Giift cards from Roberts Camera (locations on Meridian in downtown Indy and in Carmel) to help us pay for those prints that we are giving away.
Postage stamps and envelopes (9x12 or larger) for mailing photos to the families who don't pick them up at the Cafe.
Clear photo sleeves to protect the photos from fingerprints as they as being handled for mailing and when opened by the recipient. 8x10, 5x7, and 4x6 sizes. These are available from Prizm Art Supplies at 86th & Allisonville. They also sell gift cards.
Tax-deductible (as allowed with your circumstances) checks can be made out to Faith Hope & Love International with UB Cafe Free Portraits in the memo line. You can mail these to me and I will deliver them, or mail them to FHL at 8383 Craig St, Ste 335, Indianapolis, IN 46250. Please make sure that UB Cafe Free Portraits in noted in the memo line so they know how to classify the check. Also, let me know so I can track funds.
These items can be mailed or dropped off to
5508 Elmwood Ave, Ste 303
Indianapolis, IN 46203
(A&M will be moving from Suite 304 to Suite 303 by December 1, so if you go, we may be in one or both offices.)
If you go to drop off anything and I'm not there, please leave it. I am usually in that office on Fridays and drop in sometimes during the week. Kim is one of our volunteers. Gladys is my mother.
WAYS YOU CAN HELP IN PERSON:
We need set-up assistance on the 3rd from 7:30 to 9:00!
On December 10, we need 1 or 2 people to be at the cafe to hand out the portrait packages. I have an early afternoon wedding with photos starting in the morning, so I can't be there.
Please let us know if you can help with either of the above.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
