Meet Kim Pellegrino (and her beautiful family). Kim raised over $1,000 on World Water Day, helping to hire and train one well mechanic in India. Read our quick interview with Kim about the creative idea she came up with to fundraise.
How did you do it?
I decided to organize a photo session day highlighting mothers for Mothers’ Day. While I was processing the details, I suddenly thought about adding another element to this day. Giving back. Once the thought was in my head, I couldn’t ignore it. So I advertised a 30 minute session, 10 photos, $100 per session….and my commitment was that 50% of my proceeds would be donated to theadventureproject with a goal of raising $550 to hire a mechanic. At that point, I was addicted to spreading the word; I posted a message on my Nesting With Two blog to get the word out.
What was your favorite part of the process? Or what surprised you most?
My favorite part is that everyone that has signed up for the photo session has commented that they are excited about the cause. Awesome. It means something to others and that is exciting.
Why did you invest your time, talent and resources for the campaign? What stirred your heart about it?
We are so richly blessed. The Lord has truly blessed us beyond measure. Why not give back. Spread the word. He provides so much when we are faithful to his calling.
