I’ve got a great round up of 10 Christmas Picture Ideas using Lights to share today! It’s fun to get creative with lights and photography! Taking pictures of my family, brings me JOY at holiday time, especially when they cooperate! I’m sharing below how a few bloggers feel Home for the Holidays this Christmas, too.
But first, I wanted to tell you about a special family that I have never met. My friend Aly asked me to help spread the word about their cause and how we can spread some holiday JOY this year. I give you Aly:
Imagine leaving everything you know for the possibility of a better life. Saving and working for 18 years to make it a reality. That’s exactly what Priscila did. It was her dream to bring her little family, husband Marcos and young son Adam, from Brazil to the United States. They spent months filing papers, she left her teaching job and he left his career and came with only with what they could fit in their luggage. With only days to find housing and not knowing the area, they rented an apartment very quickly only to discover that it was in an “undesirable” part of town. Police are constantly in and out of the complex, knocking on the neighbor’s door. Their small son isn’t safe playing outside.
We have found them an apartment in a great, family-friendly area. The landlords are willing to pay them the $2000 it will cost to get out of their lease if they clean and fix up the apartment. However, they will loose $1000 of their deposit. We are trying to raise $2000 to help them this Holiday Season! The money raised through this campaign will all go to finding furniture for the family and giving them a cozy “home for the holidays.”
I just love the girls that are helping me with this little project! They are all posting something that means “Home for the Holidays” to them so please make sure you go check out their blogs. They are all so talented and beautiful!
Adam, such a sweet boy, looks forward to learning English. He loves it here in the U.S. You should have seen him at Halloween! He gazed in amazement at the festivities.
