Giving Is, In Fact, Awesome!

You know someone. You know someone who’s experienced a tragedy, is struggling to stay afloat, is raising kids while holding down more than one job, or is volunteering selflessly despite extenuating personal circumstances. You know someone who can’t afford custom photography, but who would cherish it this holiday season. You know someone who deserves a year-round reminder of their family’s spirit, love, and beauty.

You know someone. I guarantee it.

I want to know who they are, and I want to give them the chance to experience complimentary custom photography — $1000 worth, to be exact.  The winner will receive all of the digital negatives from the session, a custom designed keepsake box full of prints, and a 16×20 wall print.  And there might be an extra surprise too. 😉  It’s in your power to give them the artwork they deserve this holiday season.

Oh, and the best part? The person who nominates the winner receives a $250 credit to use for whatever you want! What better reason to show some love could there possibly be, people?

The rules:

* You cannot nominate yourself, and the person nominated must sincerely be incapable of purchasing my services. (Being unable to make mortgage payments for a two-million-dollar-vacation-home in Paris does not qualify as sincere financial need.)

* The nominee must live within an hour(ish) of Fort Worth, TX.  Tell me who you know, what they’re experiencing, and why they deserve my artwork. Please include a way to contact both your nominee and yourself as well.

* You must e-mail me the full story : karynkelbaugh {at} yahoo {dot} com     Made difficult to keep away the spaaambots. Shhhhh

I’m being a little different. Who I am kidding – we all know I’m different.  Most folks who are participating in Giving Is Awesome are announcing the winner on Christmas Eve. Totally sweet and awesome, right? Well, even before my blog had *issues* last week and I had to delay this post, I decided that I was going to wait just a little bit longer to announce the winner of this here giveaway.   I would like to extend the holiday wonderment and anticipation just a little bit longer… and there’s nothing REALLY EXCITING in January… except for a little bit of football 😉  So I’m announcing the winner on January 16th!  Different? Yes. Arbitrary? Not at all. It’s totally on purpose.

So what are you waiting for? Get nominating! I can’t wait to read all of your entries!

The deadline for entries is January 10th.  Just remember – if you’re watching the BCS National Championship Game and you haven’t sent in your entry yet – HURRY UP!!!

Open your heart to someone this holiday season — and thanks for giving me the opportunity to open mine.

With love,
