Being a small business owner, I am often all too aware of the bottom-line. It makes sense.
I am an artists and I love what I do, but I still have to feed my family, right?
But sometimes, it is important that we forget the bottom line and support a cause we believe in.
I am thankful that I crossed paths with Seed Effect a few years ago… because they have become like family to me. Okay, they are literally my family now.
My mother started fundraising for Seed Effect a few years ago, and after a trip to South Sudan last year to shoot for this great organization, Elle became their mobilization coordinator. But more than my family having intimate involvement, I believe in what Seed Effect is doing for the least in South Sudan.
We are returning to gather more compelling stories and photos in August, and I would appreciate your help, so we can provide low/ no cost work for Seed Effect. What that means is that they can put more money into loans for the South Sudanese, instead of into our expenses.
If you have a cause to support with your time, I would encourage you to forget your bottom-line at times and serve. It will bless others and your own soul.
But if you don’t have a way to serve… please consider giving generously to Seed Effect and our trip.
Your support will have great reach and make a huge impact. It will help us to continue to tell the stories of people in need of a hand up, not a hand out.Thank you for considering supporting Seed Effect and the people of South Sudan! ~ andrew ___________________________________________________________________________________________________ If you are interested in learning more about photography, taking your art to a new level please check out my new workshop dates: Destination Photo Tours/ Workshops 2014 Private, Destination Workshops 2014 If you are interested in licensing any of the images/ video from this post, please visit my stock agency: Tandem Stills + Motion // andrew r. slaton If you are interested in purchasing prints from this post, please check my prints for sale, or email me directly for a custom request: andrew r. slaton // photographer // prints For assignment work requests, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for visiting AndrewSlatonBlog.com! all images and content © ARS Media, LLC 2014
