I'm excited to launch the first of our signature headshot days happening at the studio and with this time of season its the perfect way to team up and give back. Megan Parker, founder of Fraser Valley Boss Ladies, and marketing & event specialist herself has joined forces with Kristy Powers Portrait to bring you Headshots for a Cause with GivingTuesday.
What is GivingTuesday?
The first time I heard about this day was at the last chamber meeting we attended and we knew we wanted to be a part of this initiative.
GivingTuesday is a National Giving Day
Most people know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday …now GivingTuesday is coming to Canada on November 29, 2016.
It is a new Canadian movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Cyber Monday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it is a day where charities, companies and individuals join together to share commitments, rally for favourite causes and think about others.

What are we supporting?
Megan and I were able to select two causes that are in line with both our companies visions. A lot of my photography work focuses on empowering women through portraits and Megan's Fraser Valley Boss Ladies group does the same by supporting female entrepreneurs through networking and collaboration. Our businesses are based in Langley and we are both advocates for supporting the local community.
$50 from each session booked will be donated to the Langley Memorial Hospital Foundation. By supporting the LMH Foundation we can make an impact on the healthcare in our community. For me personally, I had my son Evan at this hospital and I love to be able to give back.
$25 from each session is going towards The Gift of Giving 2016, organized by Danielle Wiebe. This represents the cost of covering 1 gift for a woman in need this holiday season. I was fortunate enough to help out in the promo photos last month in Fort Langley with all the gorgeous fall colours. It really represented the beauty of this initiative. Check out more info here
