Hi everyone! I have some exciting news. But first, let me digress a little and tell you the backstory.
Since I became a bunny “mom” last year to Lucky (who passed away in July 2011) and now to Cinnamon (who is 10 months old) I have become more aware of how many pet bunnies are neglected, abused and abandoned. I’m not sure how someone could neglect, abuse or abandon such beautiful, loving creatures but it happens. Late last year, I read about a charity called Baskets for Bunnies (www.basketsforbunnies.org) and thought that their mission and outreach was wonderful.
Then, the beginning of last week, I was listening to a photography podcast about non-profit organizations and it hit me, smack dab in the face!! Why not host an event where I combined two of my passions (bunnies and photography) to help an organization that also helps bunnies???!!! Ding Ding Ding!! Amazing thought! So, my plan was to sponsor a “bunny portrait day” where bunny moms and dads could give a donation to the organization and receive a portrait session and a print from the session!
I immediately searched for a contact for Baskets for Bunnies (at -yes- 5:30 in the morning!) and shot off an email detailing this plan.
All day I wondered and worried and then late that afternoon I received a response that they would be very interested in this Bunny Portrait Day!!
So, I’ve been planning and thinking and masterminding it (and finding some roadblocks that have to be overcome – as are in any good plan) and the details are below.
I would love for you to attend this event and hope that it will encourage you to learn more about bunnies and how to keep them safe.
The Bunny Portrait Day is on Saturday April 7, 2012 at Wilson Agricultural Center from 1PM until 5PM. With a donation to Baskets for Bunnies, you will receive a photo session of you and your pet bunny as well as a 5 x 7 print from the session.
There are limited time slots available so if you are interested or know someone who is, please contact me as soon as you can at (252) 299-3613 to reserve your spot!
I look forward to seeing you there,
