Every December, I am fondly reminded of my mother's homemade fudge and the smell of pine trees decorated with ornaments. When I was growing up, like many families in our neighborhood, we struggled economically to get by, especially during the holidays. Thankfully, however, we were blessed in that we never missed a meal.
Today, it's a much different story in this country. Despite a healthy economy and an unemployment rate that’s at a near-record low, there are millions of Americans struggling to get consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life. It's not necessarily the lack of food but the right kinds of food. People, especially children and the elderly, aren't getting what they need. Their pursuit of happiness is hampered by no fault of their own. In a nation as rich as ours, we can do so much better. That's where we've come in.
Since we launched Focus Relief Photography for Charity about a month ago, your response has been beyond our expectations. Because of this, we have been able to donate all our profits to food banks across the country, serving hundreds of meals to those with the most need.
This holiday season, let's do something amazing together. After you've taken care of your immediate family, let's do something to help those less fortunate families around us while also treating yourself to some stunningly beautiful photography for your home or office. When you invest in one of our signed, limited-edition, gallery-quality photos, we'll make sure 100 percent of our profits go toward programs to eliminate hunger in America. To help nudge you along, we're including a one-time, 30% discount code at the bottom of the page. Plus, free shipping on every order. When you invest in art and humanity, everyone wins.
In this issue of the InFocus newsletter, we know you are busy so we'll keep it short. We showcase a recent blog on the issue of hunger in America as it relates to senior citizens. In addition, we share stories in the fight against hunger and, as always, our photo of the week.
This is likely our last newsletter of 2018 - but we're not done yet! We have some very exciting news coming out shortly. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and on our website, FocusRelief.com, for our latest updates.
