Over the weekend I completed my gratitude packages for the Go Fund Me monies that were gifted to me. If you recall a 30 day campaign pulled together by my friends back in IL bought me a car. Wow - right?
I decided on multiple tiers of gifting utilizing these four seasonal photographs. I ordered postcards, greeting cards with envelopes, photography prints and matts. I also ordered thank you cards with my mug of a pic on it because some donations came from folks I had never met before. All these orders and details took a bit to pull together, and I am happy to say I ordered just enough. No major Karen math mistakes!
In my heart I wanted to send a bit of me, a bit of the washington I've fallen in love with and make sure my feelings felt sincere. I wanted my thank you to feel enough somehow. abundant.
Imagine my surprise when Monday came around and already some of my packages had found their way to the midwest. I mailed them on Saturday and they were in IL on Monday! Folks really loved them. All week, as more people are getting them. I am feeling their delight in what I sent. The praise was really something.
I love the full circle of this entire circumstance, and perhaps I am making a bigger deal out of all of this then I should but I felt it was important to do the right thing.
Photography = a never ending opportunity to capture visual celebrations.
