A Friend in Need...

URGENT Need for a Single Mom and High Schooler...

I hope that you can join me in helping to sustain a wonderful OC neighbor through this difficult time for so many. She's a fantastic professional social and business event photographer. She's also a single mom, with a high schooler.

I've known her for many years, her work is exceptional and I can attest to the fact that she's a hard worker with high integrity. I was inspired to call her this evening to see if she was ok and discovered that she needs our help at this time due to a few health challenges, lockdowns and lack of work in 2020. 

Her living expenses are $4000/mo. She would love photography jobs and did not ask me to start a GoFundMe for her.  After discussing it, she mentioned that since the next few months are the leanest for her job in the best of times,  it would be a relief to have help for the next few months until she can get on her feet again. 

Please let me know if you'd like her info to do photography for you - or to meet her. I won't publish her info here but am happy to discuss with interested parties.

Many thanks in advance for joining in to help my friend who is an asset to our community and beloved by many who are surely unaware of her situation.  She hadn't thought of reaching out for help via GoFundMe and was profoundly grateful at the mention of it.  I am committing to contributing $100/mo. for at least 4 months. 

Happy holidays! 

With warmest regards,
