Since the holidays are coming up, I am starting to be more and more in the giving spirit. I have always wanted to be able to use my talents for a greater good. One awesome organization that I hope to one day be apart of is Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep.
I first heard of it from a good friend of mine, Kristin. She was a hospice social worker at the time and told me about this. This organization basically gets various professional photographers to donate their time to parents who have had a terminally ill infant or maybe even had a child that was stillborn. Basically it captures the few precious moments that the parents have with their child before they must "lay them down to sleep".
One day I hope that I will be able to have the opportunity to give of my time and give parents a priceless memory of their child. I would also encourage any of my other photographer friends to also check this organization out. I know it is not for everyone, but if you are also looking for a way to use your talents this might be for you.
