It has always been in my heart to give back, but last year I blinked my eyes and it was over, have you had one of those years?!? It was an amazing/crazy/full and blessed year between Cylinda B Photography and buying/renovating our home and I am beyond grateful. However, it was the moment I sat down with my accountant that I realized I didn’t give back as much as I would have liked to in 2016. Its been hovering over my head and weighing heavy on my heart that I need to be more aware this year, of course this is easier said then done, especially now when we have our first child on the way!!! I am sure life is only going to get busier, between our business, and watching, nurturing, and learning how to raise our little miracle!
SO a great idea came to me last night while watching the amazing Shark Tank that I have been binge watching throughout pregnancy 🙂 What if a percentage of my print sale proceeds went to a charity that my clients choose!? This way when I do Cylinda B Photography’s books at the end of each month I can write checks to the charities clients chose. It would fit into my day-to-day operations and the year won’t pass me by as it has in the past! Awesome idea, right!?!
So this is where I need you! I plan to choose a mix of local, national and international charities and I am reaching out to y’all to get ideas and input on the best charities. I have a few listed in the poll below, feel free to add to the list!
After receiving input I will then integrate a question and drop down menu of 5-10 charities on my ordering form for clients to choose where they would like the donation to go. Finally, at the end of the month I will take a percentage of the prints sale proceeds from lifestyle client orders and put that towards the charities they chose! I am so excited to get started and absolutely appreciate your input!!

Help send chemo care kits to patients across the US with the Remember Betty Foundation. My goal is to raise $500 this year.
This is great, thank you so much for sharing! I look forward to looking into your foundation!
