If you read my last post, then you know that I recently volunteered to do a session for a very sweet boy who is dealing with a life-threatening illness. his name is Dalton. You can read more about him if you scroll down to the next post.
As I mentioned in my last post, when I met Dalton I learned that he wants to be a photographer when he grows up. I immediately asked him if he had a DSLR camera, but he said he had a point-and-shoot.
Dalton has spent over 5 months having treatment at the Alberta Children’s Hospital, so he’s missing school, and he’s not able to participate in a lot of activities. So I thought that having a new camera would give him something to do when he’s not in the hospital. He could spend time learning how to use it and practicing his photography skills. This is why I decided to try and raise some money to buy him an entry level DSLR. I think it would make him very very happy, and he needs that right now… Dalton has been through a lot.
At first, I hesitated asking for donations because I know that sometimes, it can be bothersome. There are so many people who need help and I know it would be impossible to help everybody, and to donate to every single cause there is. The reason I decided to do it is because if my son was going through what Dalton has gone through, I know I would appreciate the support from the community. I truly believe in helping, and although I can’t help everyone, I like to give when I can. Especially when it comes to a child.
Please consider donating ANY amount will help! You don’t have to make a huge donation. A couple bucks will help make a child happy. Vistek was kind enough to offer a discount on a camera, which is great! Thank you so much to all of you who have already donated, and if you can but haven’t, please consider doing so.
Thank you so much! I will be posting an update soon, and I’m hoping to get Dalton on video when he gets his special gift, I can’t wait to see his face 🙂
