Donated by Elizabeth Galecke

This week’s terrible storm brought devastation to many in our area. Some of the places that were hit especially hard were buildings at  the Boys and Girls Clubs in South Raleigh. A local woman owned business, IndieNC, promotes North Carolina artists and designers, and has put together an online fundraiser of local wares with 100% of sales being donated to the Boys and Girls Club of South Raleigh. These are kids who need our help- I hope you will check out the site! I have donated a mini session to the fundraiser, if you are thinking about coming in for some photography, this is a great way to purchase a session!  Click here to shop for a great cause!

If you love local music and would like to help raise money for the Red Cross to benefit those in Japan affected by the earthquake and tsunami, on Friday night at the Pour House in downtown Raleigh, there is a fundraiser starring amazing musicians who are donating their talents for the night. Check out the site on facebook for more info!

How cute are these??? Jessie Brinkley, who is an amazing graphic designer and her sister Margaret,who is an incredibly talented artist, are designing these really cool hats for kids! They also do many other great things, I have a lovely t-shirt that they designed and notecards that I love to send to my friends! I had the pleasure of working with Jessie on a project for Lutheran Family Services in the Carolinas – I documented the different programs that the organization provided and she used my images in their various brochures, annual reports and posters. It was so great to work with her on that project, but it is really fun to see this whimsical and modern work! I am hoping some of you might adorn your kids in one of these hats and bring them in for a session!!! Check out their Website for more info! http://twosistersnc.com/
