These families worked hard to rally the votes for their children and spread the awareness of NILMDTS.

And a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you who voted for your favorite model!  Because of you our six Cutie Models raised over $2550!!!!!!!  WOOHOO!!  This money goes to a very deserving charity.  NILMDTS is a non-profit organization committed to assisting parents and families going trough the difficult time when they experience an early infant loss.  NILMDTS connects families with photographers and provides them with a reproducible CD of the images of their baby at no cost to the family.

A very special thank to Denise and Rob Garner of The Garner Realty Team. They matched dollar for dollar of the votes that came in the last couple of days of the contest! It gave everyone a really nice chance of doubling their money towards the race to win and rallying the vote! I was extremely touched by their generosity; they easily could have put the matching dollars toward their own children that were in the contest and instead helped all of the PLP Cutie Models. Thanks again Denise and Rob.

I had a fantastic time working with my families in the contest as well as hearing great stories from many of you. The awareness level for NILMDTS has certainly expanded due to this contest. There are many deserving charities that I’ve worked with in the past and will continue doing so. Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep serves a great purpose and it’s an honor to raise money for them. I appreciate all of the people who worked so hard behind the scenes at the NILMDTS headquarters to make this a true fundraiser success.

Thanks again to everyone that voted for any of the beautiful children throughtout the U.S.

Have a great day.





Time to Rally the Vote for the National Model Search …

30 03 2009

to benefit Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep. VOTING ENDS APRIL 2!!

Thank you for your support of my participation in the National Charity Model Search. I’ve enjoyed submitting many wonderful portraits of our beautiful children to the contest, and I’m proud to say that by working together around the nation, we’ve raised over $94,000 for Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep!!!

I’m thrilled that more awareness has been brought to this worthy charity because of this contest.

There’s still time to rally the final vote and raise more money for charity, as well as voting to keep our cutie models in the standings. If you’ve been putting off placing your vote, please do so now. Also, please urge your family and friends to vote, the voting ends APRIL 2!!! The contest selects America’s Cutest Kid, and the winning child receives great prizes, including a $5,000 US Savings Bond and a Canon PowerShot G10 digital camera for the National winner. Remember, each dollar generated by votes goes toward providing infant bereavement photography to parents who have lost a child.

Thanks again for getting the vote out.  I am a volunteer for NILMDTS and I’m thrilled that this contest has made more people aware of it. NILMDTS truly helps families through a most difficult time in their lives. These families are always in my thoughts and prayers.

Please ask your friends and families, if they are comfortable doing so, to pass this along to their friends and families. Putting it on their facebook profile is a great way to spread the word also.  Each vote costs $1.

 

Enjoy this slideshow of some of the images from this year’s beautiful contestants.
