Every month AoIP donates 10% of our income from our website sales to a charity/fundraiser that is in immediate need, or is a choice from our AoIP community.
October's donation will go to Michael's Cause. Our teacher, Michele Yacovello, had proposed this for consideration.
Michele states 'I've been volunteering my time and photography to Michael’s Cause for the past 4 years. After meeting the family and especially Michael I knew I had to contribute in any way I could. Rob and Theresa, Michael’s parents, are passionate about funding research to help find a cure to help their son and all boys with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. DMD is a genetic disorder that involves rapidly worsening muscle weakness, difficulty walking and breathing. This disease affects 1 in 3500 boys worldwide.'
September's donation is going to Pleasant Animal Shelter.
If you have a charity that's near and dear to your heart, please let us know so we can donate to it in future months.
