It is that time of year again. Time for apple and pumpkin picking, campfires, woolen coats, roasted marshmallows, and school festivals. It is also time to be the most creative you have ever been in your life trying to help your child come up with the perfect Halloween costume. So, why spend all of the time, energy and money for them only to wear the costume for one day?! Please come celebrate Halloween a few days early at our studio on Saturday, October 27, 2012. This year we are supporting Frazee Dream Center with our donations. Frazee Dream Center is is a free preschool, after school & summer program for under resourced children in the downtown Greenville area. The program offers assistance and guidance to children ages 3-16 in the areas of academics, character development, sportsmanship and emotional wellness. We are so excited to offer our support to this deserving organization.
So, how does this morning work you might ask? This year, to help with the chaos, we are asking families to come during a certain hour. So, if your last name starts from A-M, please come from 9:30-10:30. If your last name starts with N-Z, please come from 10:30-11:30. When you arrive you will sign-in, drop off your donations, and will be given a number so you know when to go in the backyard to be photographed. We are going to have many games and activities for your children to play in the front yard while they wait. You shouldn't have to wait very long. These "sessions" will go very quickly. Then, when you are done, you can play more!
As for the donations, we have a list of the items that the teachers at Frazee need. They are as follows: Lysol/Clorox wipes, Swiffer wet cloth refills, white cardstock, foaming hand soap refills, and any anti-bacterial cleaner (bathroom, kitchen, all-purpose). For every donated item you bring, we will give you one free 5x7. So, if you have three kids and want an individual picture taken of each child plus a group photo, please bring 4 donated items. As for who will select the image(s)? I will select them the same weekend, and have them printed and mailed to you the following week. The only thing you have to do is bring your items and kids to my studio and have a great time while you are here. I will do the rest.
I hope all of this makes sense. It is very similar to last year, with a few changes. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Also, please invite all of your friends to come too. We want this to be a successful event for Frazee. I know how giving you are and I want them to feel overpowered by your generosity. I can't wait to see all of your cute Cackling Kids in a couple of weeks!!!
