One of the things we love to do is travel! Christina has been to Paraguay, Brazil, Africa, Australia, Canada and Mexico and Nate has been to Antarctica, New Zealand and Mexico.
In all of our travels, what most touched our hearts, were the sick and hungry children. The look in their eyes, as they desperately beg you to buy a bracelet or trinket. The fear of not knowing if they would eat that day.
It absolutely broke our hearts. We can home with bags full of trinkets, how can you possibly look at them and tell them no?
Long after being back home in the states, with our comfy lifestyle, warm showers, fridge full of food, those children continued to haunt our minds.
We made the choice early in our marriage to do something to help hungry children. We sponsor 3 children through the Compassion Program. The Compassion Program gives the children, food and fresh water, a safe place to go where they get education and learn about the love of Jesus. They write letters to us and we have been able to watch them as they grow!
Sabensia and Saida are both in Kenya and are the same age while Steevenson is in Haiti and is a bit older.
It is often sobering to hear them tell you that they bought flour or rice with the Christmas money we send to them. Sometimes they get a new dress or a soccer ball but most of the time, it goes to cover food for their family.
We have decided to donate 10 to 15 percent of all photo shoot fees towards helping hungry children all over the world. You will get to choose from the list below, how your session will help, pick whatever is calling to you!
We are excited to be able to help even more, with your help!
