Langhorne, PA (PRWEB) March 2, 2007
Collages.net has recently collaborated with Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep (NILMDTS), a non-profit infant bereavement photography organization that offers professional photography services to families grieving over the loss of their newborn or young child. This partnership provides NILMDTS photographers with a free Collages.net account.
With this partnership, Collages.net aspires to help NILMDTS by creating awareness about healing through memories. "When Sandy Puc', co-founder of NILMDTS told me about the NILMDTS program, I was touched by what this group of professional photographers was doing for these grief-stricken families," said Collages.net's CEO and President Kevin Casey. "I am delighted that our services will now help these families mitigate some of their grief while also preserving the memory of their precious child."
To tastefully display the images, Collages.net, working with Puc', designed a special template website for NILMDTS photographers. The password-protected websites, that remain live indefinitely unless deactivated by the photographer, offer families an online slide show of their images and the ability to purchase professional photographs. Proceeds from all print sales go directly to the NILMDTS charitable organization.
"I'm amazed at the generous offer Collages.net has given to NILMDTS. The benefit to both our photographers and families is awesome," Puc' said. "And to know that the proceeds will also further our mission is wonderful." NILMDTS is staffed by volunteer photographers and imaging artists.
Through its involvement, Collages.net also aims to bring this compassion and awareness to other photographers in the industry. In conjunction with a free Collages.net account, NILMDTS photographers receive full Collages.net customer service support. All NILMDTS photographers can begin using this service by calling Collages.net at (877) 638-7468 and identifying themselves as a NILMDTS photographer.
