Giving Back (5)

Roger’s House, located on the grounds of CHEO, offers incredibly important services and support to children and their families including respite care, end of life care, pain & symptom management, grief & bereavement support and perinatal hospice care

In 2013  my childhood friends son came into the world too early.  He will be forever loved and remembered by his parents, his sisters, as well as extended family members and a wide circle of friends.  In 2013 year I made the decision to focus my holiday fundraising efforts in his memory.   I donated the proceeds from my Holiday Lights Mini Sessions with generous friends, family and clients and dropped off a cheque at Roger’s House for $2075 the week before Christmas.

2014 was the third year in a row that I offered Holiday Light Mini Sessions.  I offered fifteen special ‘Light up the Night for Roger’s House’ sessions and thanks to my generous clients raised a total of $3100.

In two years, thanks to the generosity of my family, friends, and clients, we have raised $5175 for Roger’s House.  2015 is my fifth year in business and one of my priorities is to continue my fundraising efforts for Roger’s House.    I am so grateful for the support of the Ottawa community, which is why giving back is one of the cornerstones of my business.  My goal in 2015 is to raise $5000 for Roger’s House bringing our three year fundraising efforts to total of $10,175.

Each Month I will offer a Special Roger’s House Session and 100% of the proceeds from that session will be donated to the charity.  My fundraising efforts will culminate in November with my Holiday Lights Mini Sessions.  Not only is your entire session fee donated to Roger’s House but you don’t have to pay HST on the cost of your session.

To the families who have shared their personal stories and connections with Roger’s House and to those who have donated generously to my efforts thank you for your kindness, support, and for the daily reminders about how important our connectedness and support of one another is.
