Willamette Christian School Auction / Salem OR Photographer

This is a little shout out to Willamette Christian School who's doing an auction tomorrow as a fundraiser for their school. I'm so pumped to be a part of their auction and help raise money for this incredible establishment. I know quite a few kids who attend, inlcuding my nephew Isaiah, and taught Digital Photography to an awesome group of Middle Schoolers last Fall term.

The basket is valued at $525 so I'm praying this really brings in some serious cash to help WCS keep delivering their awesome teaching program! On top of this one-time donation I decided to pitch in 10% of portrait proceeds and 5% of wedding proceeds when the client mentions WCS from now until July 31, 2010.

I believe very strongly in the principle in tithing as it applies to my business. I never want to become greedy, hoarding all the money for myself. Rather, I believe through giving generously to good causes my business will be blessed and enriched. I see my ability in photography as a gifting from God and what better way to honor and thank Him than make a habit of generosity? I'd rather be known as a generous business than a profitable business any day! I hope to inspire both businesses and individuals to give of their time, talents, and treasures to make someone else's life better.

I took a few shots of the basket which turned out pretty cute, and will be sure to snatch more photos of the whole display tomorrow when I put it together. What do YOU think?
