Jonny and Michelle Hoffner are boutique photographers known as Paper Antler who regularly give back through their work. They donate 10% of their earnings to She Dances, an organization that works to rehabilitate girls who have been victims of trafficking. “Human trafficking is one of the fastest growing crimes in the world; this is our stand against it,” they say on their site.
And they’re about to take a major stand against it.
They’re taking the entire year of 2012 to raise $50,000 for She Dances. They plan a coast-to-coast tour in which they fill photograph 50 weddings (one a week) and donate $1,000 from each wedding.
It’s a lofty goal they’re calling “Fifty Nifty.”
They’re asking everyone to get involved by:
- Booking them to shoot your wedding in 2012.
- Blogging/Tweeting/Facebooking about the Fifty Nifty.
- Telling your friends, family and tech savvy children.
- Contacting your local media for potential coverage.
We love seeing photographers finding creative ways to give back and wish them the best on this endeavor!
