Microsoft photographers raising funds for Japan

On Saturday, April 2, a group of Microsoft employees will be taking photos of individuals, couples and families to raise funds for disaster relief in Japan. I’m proud to say that my husband, Lucky, was the person who came up with this idea, proposed it to the photo club at Microsoft, and almost overnight a team of eight was formed, with each person contributing their unique skill sets to make this event a success. It’s open to all Microsoft employees and vendors and their families, and the donation of $25 will be matched 100% by Microsoft. This is community action, and Microsoft, at its very best.

When: Saturday, April 2, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Where: The Commons

Who: You and your family, if you are a Microsoft employee or vendor or know one who will escort you

Register: Use this link (you must have access to the internal Microsoft system)

Each individual or group will have the opportunity for one studio-style portrait and one environment-style portrait. I’ll be photographing as well, along with Lucky.

This is such a special idea and project. Lucky came up with a win/win idea for everyone. Wish I could be two places at once today, to support this event.

It was quite a successful day! Lots of couples and families attended. I think they raised quite a bit of money for Japan. One person donated $1000! Thanks for the comment!

Thanks Lauren! Yes, Microsoft matches 100% of the donations. They raised a total of over $7000 that day!
