lemmonade42 brought a wonderful charity to our attention, and it needs the help of photographers around the world.
Ok, if you have not heard of it Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep is an amazing WORLD WIDE program. This is an opportunity for YOU as a photographer to help people in a really hard but amazing time in their lives. When parents have a baby that they will never get to take home from the hospital it is a very hard time for them. They literally have to savor each second of that infant's life because there are only so many seconds in their lives. Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep is a program where photographers volunteer to go to the hospital and do a newborn session with these babies and parents that have so little time. You are giving these parents a taste of what life would be like if they could take this baby out to a photographer and then to their homes. These babies never make it home, so these parents need these treasured memories in their lives to help them move on and remember how precious those moments were. If you are interested please go to their website: www.nowilaymedowntosleep.org and watch their recruiting video. If you still do not feel like you can participate fine, but this is an amazing opportunity to give back to your community and to help those who really need you.
