I've always had an interest in philanthropy. I believe that even if you aren't able to be active in making a difference physically, it's important to at least be informed about the world around you so that you can maybe spread knowledge and educate others.
The biggest reason I have caught the bug at the moment, is inspired by my absolute favourite actress, Sophia Bush. It's amazing what one person, when passionate, can do to make a difference! It gives me hope that not all is lost in this crazy mess of a society, and hope that someday I can make a ripple - and make a difference myself!
I am a photographer, just started in the business 3 years ago. I studied for two years at the School of Design and Visual arts here in Ontario to study photography, and now am a full time photographer with my own company Amanda Arch Photography. Check me out on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/amandaarchphotography. I recently became affiliated with a foundation called the Tiny Sparrow Foundation. It is a non profit, bringing together photographers and families who have children suffering from life threatening illnesses. I am hoping to start raising funds through crowdrise for this foundation. I am very passionate about the importance of professional family photos, especially at a time where you know the future is so uncertain.
I guess I have blabbered on about myself for long enough. I hope you have learned enough about me to start a conversation! I am always up for meeting more people who are as passionate about making a difference as I am!
