Safe Pets Safe Families Fundraiser
It was April, my birthday was fast approaching, and I'd been racking my brain about the best way to celebrate turning 30. The pressure was on because it seemed like “the big three oh” should be a monumental milestone. I wasn’t really in the mood for hoopla and fuss (perhaps the first sign of ageing?) but instead felt the ideal way to celebrate would be to redirect any of this hoopla and fuss towards the charity organisation, Safe Pets Safe Families.
Safe Pets Safe Families do truly wonderful and urgent work, providing programs and services to both people and their pets in the SA community who are facing disadvantage or crisis situations, predominantly in relation to domestic violence.
The spirit of Hound in Hand Photography is to celebrate the special relationships people have with the pets, and Safe Pets Safe Families live this philosophy every single day by keeping families together, often in the most trying and heartbreaking circumstances.
To raise funds for this indispensable organisation I held a day of Mini Sessions at our studio in Marleston. 100% of profits were donated, and I am so proud of what we managed to achieve. The sessions swiftly sold out and we had a total of 8 people with their respective 15 dogs participate (and may it be noted, not 1 accident to report! 💩)
We raised a mind boggling total of $1160, and I lost count of the bonus cuddles I scored.
I have so much gratitude for all who took part and made this possible. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Best. Birthday. Ever.
