I strongly believe in giving back to charities who work endlessly to improve lives through services or even through the enrichment of four-legged companions. In a day where images flood us daily through social media, a well made image can be powerful in moving others to also act. I enjoy making these images for worthy charities to use for promoting their causes.
Currently there are two primary charities that I contribute my time.
Equest is located south of Dallas, Texas. Their mission is to enhance the quality of life for children and adults with diverse needs by partnering with horses to bring hope and healing through equine assisted activities and therapies.
The staff and numerous volunteers have incredible patience and dedication to the clients. I've witnessed tremendous joy from children and adults as they ride the horses.
Angie's is also located in Dallas and is dedicated to finding homes for primarily dogs and cats that desparately desire a loving relationship with a human. For decades, Angie, has visited neighborhoods with limited means to feed, water, medicate, provide shelter, and of course love these animals. Many of them are living on short chains. Families who are unable to care for their pets trust Angie to find them a good home. I adopted one of my wonderful dogs through Angie's Friends.
