Maine Wedding Photographer » Brunswick, ME Wedding Photographer Michele Stapleton

Buy photography & support a worthy cause

Lola Childrens HomeLola Children’s Home is an orphanage in Mekele, Ethiopia which serves HIV-positive children. I know about the wonderful work being done at Lola–and even got the amazing opportunity to travel there three years ago–because of Allie Haley and Tim Hill, whose wedding I had photographed in Maine a few years earlier. Allie and Tim are instrumental in fundraising in the US for this very worth cause.

Allie organizes a yearly auction to raise funds for Lola, and each year she gathers wonderful auction items such as sports memorabilia (a basketball autographed by the 2013-14 Celtics anyone?), passes to family-friendly attractions, and certificates for restaurants, shopping and lodging. Even for lodging in exotic locales (surely on this snowy day you can’t resist a vacation in Antigua or St. Lucia?)

I have donated a $500 gift certificate for photography. And, while it can be used for booking a new shoot, if you are an existing customer (e.g., a client who has booked me for a 2014 wedding), you can also use it for payment on an existing contract. This is a very good deal as you can potentially pick up the gift certificate for under face value. Meaning you can get a break on what you’ll pay under your contract, plus get to direct that money to a very worthy cause.

The auction will be over on Monday (Feb 10th) so don’t delay. Please take a minute to visit the auction at and bid on my gift certificate plus any other number of great items!
