Charitable giving: Join us in spreading smiles beyond photos
“We make a living by what we get,
But we make a life by what we give.”
As wedding photographers and videographers, we’re privileged to spend our careers celebrating love, joy and happiness with each of our special couples.
But, We’re also aware that life is not always about smiles.
All around our community and the world there are people suffering in a multitude of ways.
As professional photographers and videographer working in the $72 billion dollar (per year) wedding industry, we have a unique ability and power to help those in need.
And, we do.
Our company, Life.Film, donates a percentage of each contract every month to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. It is our way of giving back and helping those in need.
Sadly, we’re in the minority.
Small Business Trends reports that just forty-two percent of all small business owners donate $1,000 or more a year to charity.
And, the wedding industry (as a whole) is not even in the top ten of the most charitable industries in America, according to statistics by Powerlytics, Inc.
Here at Life.Film we want to change that and we’re inviting all wedding industry companies and vendors to join us to start giving at least one percent to charity each month.
Additionally, we invite all engaged couples to participate in a challenge to raise as much money as they can for the charity of their choice by October 31, 2017.
For the couple that donates the most, we will capture their wedding absolutely free!
To participate in the contest, the couple must fill the “Contact Us” form at https://life.film/donate-life-film/ and provide their contact information, the amount of money they donated and proof of the donation.
Life.Film can’t imagine life without giving and taking care of someone who is really in need.
We chose the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles as the recipient of our gifts because as the first and largest pediatric hospital in Southern California, it relies on the generosity of philanthropists in the community to support compassionate patient care, education and research.
One way our donations have helped is to support the hospital’s mission to always have the right people and products to take care of the 528,000 children it sees each year.
Nine out of every 10 children are taken to hospitals that do not have the right equipment, supplies or staff to provide pediatric care. That doesn’t happen at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles thanks to the generosity of donors.
As you can see, we’re passionate about the charity we help on a regular basis. We’re so excited to see what charity you’re passionate about helping and look forward to hearing your stories.
Together, we can all make a difference in this world.
