Dear Stalkers, on one of the most important day of the year, VETERANS DAY, please take a minute to watch and read about the Boot Campaign. A campaign that is very close to Pink Posh's heart and "soles."
About The Boot Campaign
BOOT CAMPAIGN Mission: (taken from www.bootcampaign.com)
Did you know there are over 1.4 million Americans in active duty today? What if for every active duty service member there was a civilian sporting a pair of boots in their honor? That action alone sends an important message to our troops. It says “thank you” for their service to protect and maintain our freedoms, often doing so in dangerous and life-threatening situations. It provides the opportunity for a public and active display of gratitude. It unites ordinary hard-working people regardless of political or religious views. It serves as a reminder that when we put boots on, there are people just like us who donated their lives to protect ours.
The natural benefit from the campaign is funds available to provide a positive impact in lives of wounded returning combat military. We support existing charities working with veterans who are severely injured and/or suffering from Post- Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD). 100% of the net proceeds from boots and other BC merchandise are donated to our charity partners for the building of a Veterans Ranch through the Lone Survivor Foundation and assisting charities who provide help for PTSD.
Given the cost of freedom, perhaps buying boots is more like making a donation to honor our servicemen and women around the world. In return, you get a ginormous thank-you card for your donation in the form of boots that you can wear proudly any day of the week and for every occasion!
You could say the Boot Girls are your average hard-working professionals. But there is nothing average about these 5 women! They chose to use their spare time to develop an awareness initiative that will support injured American forces. They possess the rare quality of serving others without the desire of personal, financial gain. In fact, several of the Boot Girls dug deep into their own pockets to get the campaign started. The Boot Girls are humbled by what the military endures to give them the freedom to choose their own professional careers which is the passion behind the campaign. Take a few minutes to become acquainted with these 5 sassy and hard-working Texans by reading their biographies. You’ll be inspired by their moxie and genuine love of people! - http://www.bootcampaign.com/bootgirls.html
If you didn't already know, I am one of the original 5 Boot Girls. This past year have seen Thurston and I travelling all over the continental United States shooting and documenting for the Boot Campaign during the week and flying back right in time to shoot a wedding. It has been exhiliarating, fun, (of course it's also very tiring), but most of all, it's been IMPORTANT for us to do this and get the awareness out there. So, on this Veteran's Day, when the awareness for our troops and all that they sacrifice is at an all time high and the "thing to do," I would like to encourage all my readers/stalkers/clients to "get THEIR boots on." AND...Pink Posh would like to help you with you this.
For all my clients that I have not shot their weddings or sessions, if you purchase the Boot Campaign official "GIVE BACK" boots, Pink Posh will take off up to $100 of of your wedding or your session fees. What does this mean? Here's the easy math.
You buy the $130 Boot Campaign Give Back Boots - we knock off $100 on your wedding contract. That means, you only pay $30 for your combat boots and get to show support and say "thank you" to our troops EVERY DAY! Even for a few minutes.
You buy the $130 Boot Campaign Give Back Boots - we knock off $50 of your session fee. If you and your fiance/husband/friend/sister/brother/family who is in the session with you purchase a pair of boots as well, we will knock off another $50. UP TO $100 a session.
The boots must be ordered/paid for - prior to your session date. I do have a way to get this information. :)
So, there you have it. :) And because, posts are more fun with pictures...I thought I would share with all of you a few of the images I've shot for the Boot Campaign over the past year. :)
