Shirelle Hebert Chimenti is organizing this fundraiser.
Hi, I'm Shirelle Chimenti, from The Woodlands, TX, and I'm a client and friend of Bryan Anderson. I know there are many many people out there affected by the terrible devastation of Hurricane Harvey. It is impossible to help every single victim, however, I believe we can help those near and dear to hearts whether it be meals, help with clean-up, donations, etc. Myself, Gina Bergman, and Argenae Price would like to ask your help in raising money for our dear friend Bryan Anderson. He lost everything in the flood. The only things he evacuated with, were his dog, a few clothing items, his camera equipment, and his clients photos. As most of you know, Bryan is an extremely talented photographer! It speaks volumes that in the rush to move to safety, he thought of his clients memories as something important to save. Bryan wouldn't in a million years ask for help, so we ask that this gofundme, not be publicly shared. (He knows nothing about it, and we would like to keep it that way, until we give him the donations). This is a list of just a few ways Bryan has given back: He volunteers weekly at Dans House Of Hope. He works with adolescents going through cancer, down syndrome and autistic kids through let kids be kids. He does photo shoots for single fathers and single mothers on Father's Day and Mother's Day. He does concept shoots for cops and other first responders. And he goes to various shelters taking pictures of animals in hopes of helping them get adopted. Bryan is currently living with Argenae and her family, but with your help and generosity, will hopefully be able to begin rebuilding his life. We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. ~ Winston ChurchillThanks so much,Shirelle, Gina, Argenae ( and Bryan )
Gina, Argenae, along with myself, will present a check to Bryan so that he may buy clothes, equipment for his photography business, all of the necessary things to furnish an apartment (furniture, bedding, dishes, etc). Basically whatever is needed to help rebuild his life. We will include all of your names and well wishes along with your donations so that he can see just how loved he truly is!
