Let's support a good cause!

Each year Chrissy Smith Photography (formerly Twisted Images Photography) tries to do something to help out the Truck Convoy for wishes. Either by shooting the Amy's Wish Convoy Kick-off ride, or by setting up at one of their events to try and raise money. This year I wanted to do something a little different in hopes to generate a little more for the cause.

So, I have decided to donate a number of our Canvas Portraits (taken by Chrissy Smith Photography) and auction them off on a online auction. This way not only can we get local support but it reaches out to everyone! And the best part... ALL proceeds from this auction will go directly to Truck Convoy for Wishes!

For those who are not familiar with the Truck Convoy for Wishes, each year dozens of trucks and local businesses offer up their time and trucks to participate in a semi-filled parade that travels through Central, PA. Fire trucks, semi's, dump trucks... you name it, they all participate with their Make-A-Wish Banners flying in the breeze. It is truly a sight to behold. And if that doesn't tug at your heart strings, the Make-A-Wish families and their children riding on board these trucks just might, as nothing can wipe the smile off their faces as they tug at their air horns, making their parade well known to the hundreds of spectators who line the road sides to wave as the convoy goes by.

Last year they raised $158,400 granting 36 wishes!!!!!

Now, back to the Auction. How does it work you may ask...

It's simple, between the time of 9am April 21st and 11:59pm on April 28th, check out our facebook event page below.

Canvas Auction Page

Take a look around at our available canvas prints and just place your bid below the canvas you are interested in. Bids must be a min of $1. At the end of the auction the person with the highest bid will be named winner and I will contact them for their email where I will email an invoice for the winning amount OR they can drop a check off at time of canvas pickup at the Chrissy Smith Photography Studio. If you live out of state, we can ship the canvas to you, however.. you will be responsible for shipping as I will not take it out of the proceeds for Truck Convoy for Wishes.

So let help and see how much we can get to donate and help make some more wishes come true! Good luck and thank you for helping to support such an amazing cause!

And depending on how well the auction does, I may turn it into a annual thing that Chrissy Smith Photography will have to continue with.
