I’m a little behind in blogging about this charity that I am so excited to be a part of.  First off, I feel so very blessed that I have been given this talent to help create memories for families.  This year I wanted to find a couple of charities that I can help with.  The first one is called “Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep” or NILMDTS.  I want you to watch a short clip about this charity…………

Today Show NILMDTS

I have come across this charity several times and never wanted to be a part of it because I was afraid I would be too emotional.  Well, I’ve come to realize, it’s not about me!!  This is an amazing charity that offers memories for families that they will cherish forever.  How could I not be a part of something so beautiful and good.  I am nervous yet excited to help these families.  We are only here for a short amount of time and I’m going to help as many people as I can while I’m here. 

With that being said…………….I was able to attend a couple of workshops with Sandy Puc and I have been inspired.  She is an incredible lady that I would love to tell you about but it would literally be a novel by the time I finished.  She is the co-founder of the NILMDTS organization.  She is an extremely successful photographer and teacher.  At her last workshop that I attended in the summer, she spoke of an International Charity Model Search that sparked my interest.  Here is a little bit of information about it:
