Today I had my picture taken, several times in fact.

Why am I telling you this?

Because of the fantastic fundraiser that is put on by Eye For Detail Photos and the Tumbler Ridge Food Bank.

Every year around this time Eye for Detail Photo’s sets up out at Fern’s Fineries and people are invited to come by for a 20 min photo shoot.  It is perfect timing, just before Christmas. The cost is $30 and when you leave you are holding a fantastic 8 x 10 photo of your family, kids, pets or whoever you have along.  All of the money raised is then donated back to the TR Food Bank.

This fundraiser usually ends up pulling in $1000 or more thanks to the amazing sponsors and the people of Tumbler Ridge who are so very generous.  The best part is…in a week or so you can go look at all of your photos and if you want more, you can order them in the form of pictures, Christmas cards, canvases or even metal prints, and a portion of every purchase goes back to the food bank.  It is a win win fundraiser…you are giving back to the community and you end up with some amazing pictures.

Now, what do Grandkids have to do with this?  My daughter Jade brings her four beautiful daughters, my granddaughters, out to take part in this fundraiser every year.  This year they got to my house around noon and I got to spend some quality time with them.  They were so inspired by the Photo’s for Food fundraiser that they decided to take some pictures on their own with my iphone.  Below you can see some of their finest work!!  Thanks Jade, Dakota, Addison, Tegan, Myka and Danica for such a fun filled afternoon.
