First of all, a little backstory. As we don’t have satellite cable, and I don’t obsess over the nightly news, I didn’t hear about this when it first happened. In talking with my friend Jonathan Canlas over at Jonathan Canlas Photography, I found out about the Nielsons. I was impressed with his efforts to raise money to help this family, and felt that we should do something as well. I offered my help to him, but he encouraged me to contact the Nielsons directly, so that is what I did. Here’s what’s going down:
On Saturday, August 16th, Stephanie (Nie Nie) and Christian Nielson’s plane crashed shortly after takeoff in Eastern Arizona. The third passenger on the plane, a flight instructor, was injured critically, and soon after passed away. Christian has sustained burns over 30% of his body, and Stephanie has been left with more than 80% of her body burned. The Nielsons have 4 children, all under the age of 7. These children are now in the care of family.
The Nielsons hospital bills alone are already in the millions, not counting all of the additional needs this family will undoubtedly have. For this reason, we have chosen to take part in raising funds to help the Nielsons. You can find out more about the Nielsons at www.nierecovery.com.
Here’s how it works:
Here’s how you can help:
Book any photo session now (Family, children, couple, engagement, etc) and half of your session fees and print sales will go directly to the fund to help the Nielsons. You will donate directly to an authorized Recovery Fund Account. Once you have donated, send us the receipt and we will discount your entire order by 50%. Our goal is to raise at least $10,000 to help this family in need. Together, we can help!
