Subject: Your chance to give to a great cause
Help-Portrait changes lives in our community each year by providing professional portraits for individuals and families who would otherwise never have them. Through a current Groupon campaign, you have the opportunity to give a $10 for a $20 donation that will provide the chance for two families to receive a photography session, three portraits and a frame this coming holiday season.

Thanks for providing love & light to people in need!
