Valentine’s Day For All.

150119 Birmingham On Fire

Most of you know about my side project Picture Birmingham – it is a site where I sell items made from my photography so that I can give all of the profits to The WellHouse, a ministry that rescues and cares for victims of human trafficking in the United States. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, get caught up here to find out how it was exactly that God made it so clear to me to start this ministry. Thanks to many of you, over $6,000 has been donated to The WellHouse so far.

There are currently 20 ladies at The WellHouse – a record number of women finding healing and recovery at their facilities. One of the hardest types of healing that these ladies must travel through is emotional healing – to understand that God loves them and that there are people who love them, without wanting anything in exchange. Trusting people, trusting love, and trusting affection is excruciatingly difficult to relearn. Or, perhaps for some of these women, to learn for the first time.

So for Valentine’s Day, I want to do something special for these ladies. I want to give them a Valentine’s Gift that will let them feel cherished. I’m looking into different items to include in these gifts, and am definitely open to suggestions and donations.

To make this project possible, I’m offering a discount code at Picture Birmingham – please consider using the code SHARELOVE to save 10% off of everything in the Picture Birmingham Shop, and as always, 100% of the profits go to The WellHouse, but in February, we will use those funds to send a special gift of love to the twenty ladies at The WellHouse. So you could buy a gift from Picture Birmingham for someone in your life, and the money which you spent will go to buy a gift for someone at The WellHouse. Gift Multiplication!

In the shop, I have canvases, note cards, prints, and sets of prints. I even have a few 2015 Calendars left that are deeply discounted. If you’re wanting to buy a Valentine’s gift for someone in your life but not sure what they want, I also have gift certificates!

And for those of you that aren’t local, although a lot of the pictures are from Birmingham, many are of other places, or are just serene water scenes (like this one at Callaway Gardens),
