Back in May of this year, T-Elle Photography hosted an amazing giveaway for a photo session and prints, valued at $335. I happened to be the lucky winner of the giveaway and have been so excited to schedule a family photo session with this incredible artist. However, two Northwest families that are battling cancer have been heavily on my mind and heart. I have been thinking of ways to help ease their financial burden. I spoke with Tushna of T-Elle photography and we decided that we would LOVE to auction off the giveaway and donate 100% of the proceeds to the Jostad & Warwick families. In addition to the original photography session, T-Elle Photography has generously decided to donate $300 in photo credit. The package is now valued at $450!
Ethan Jostad is a 9-year-old boy and his body has been ravaged by Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare cancer. While his body is losing the fight, his spirit has won the war. You can read about this amazing little boy’s heroic fight here:
You can make a donation directly to the Jostad family by clicking here.
The second family we are supporting is a local Seattle mom, Krystal Warwick. Krystal is a 27-year-old mother of three who was diagnosed with a brain tumor 9 days after giving birth to her daughter. She has been through surgery, radiation and will be receiving ongoing treatments, much of which is not covered by insurance. You can find additional details on Krystal’s blog here.
You can make a donation directly to the Warwick family here:
Deposits can be made at any Chase branch. Account # 2976735882. Or, they may be mailed to the Warwick household at 12907 4th Dr SE, Everett, WA 98208.
The fundraiser starts today and will run until Monday, August 22, 2011. Leave a comment on T-Elle photography’s facebook page with your bid amount. The highest bid will receive this amazing photography package valued at $450! *Minimum bid $50
Donation must be received by September 1st and photo shoot must be in the Seattle area.
